The Four Ways of Thinking

Biologically speaking, we all have a brain in our head. Unfortunately, most of us don’t do our thinking with it. Some people do. In any given situation they’re able to weigh up the pros and cons and reach a sensible decision. These people tend to be successful but they’re also usually incredibly boring. They’re way too rational. They only spend what they afford, they only go out when they know they have no plans for the next day, they’ll only have sex with condoms. Obviously they’re not bad choices to make at all but it’s a little relentless. They don’t do what they may want to do because they fear the consequences. They play it safe so nothing can go wrong. They rarely let their hair down.

Then you have the people who let the heart do their thinking. Everything is whimsical and exciting but often disastrous. These people let their emotions run away with them and no matter how often they get hurt, they go back for more. Some people do follow their heart in a different way though. They’re passionate about things like raising money for charities and aiding the poor or the elderly or the disabled. I feel these people too must be more frustrated than satisfied as they can only do so much. Very rarely is there a conclusion as these are things that don’t ever look likely to be fixed.

Head and heart are the primary sources that supposedly rule our actions but I propose there are two other parts of the body that have a say.

The fist. The thing you use when you want to punch something or someone. Some people appear to be little more than a pair of fists. If they go on a night out, they’re looking for a fight. If they go on a day out, they’re looking for a fight. If someone says something they take exception to, they look for a fight. If someone looks at them in a way they don’t like, they look for a fight. These people don’t have time for reasoning or rationalism, they just want to hit things. I’m not sure what possesses these people. I don’t know if they’re consumed with hate and anger or if they’re actually really happy folk that just get a perverse pleasure from causing physical pain.

The final thinking tool for people is the dick. You don’t need to be a man to think with your dick. These are males and females that let sex dictate everything they do. They just want to have sex. They also tend to cause a lot of trouble. Whether it be cheating on someone with someone, or shagging someone who’s cheating on someone or an unplanned pregnancy… It’s more hassle than it’s worth.

In truth, the vast majority of us think with a bit of all of them sometimes for better or worse. One notable thing I find is that none of them really seem to lead to happiness. The truly happy people are the people that don’t think at all. They’re too stupid and unaware of most things so not a great deal gets them down. Ignorance must truly be bliss.
