When a person is governed more by intellectual decisions than by emotional decisions they weigh the outcomes. The think of all the pros and cons of every decision they have to make and they make the decision based on what has the most pros.This person thinks logically and takes the future into consideration instead of making spontaneous decisions on the spot.
An emotional person would most likely make decisions spontaneously based on how they felt at that moment in time and not consider the future in their decisions.They tend to be very emotional and develop attachments to people or even their work and because of these attachments they are sensitive to change.This make decision making hard to do, especially if it deals with what they are attached too.
The positives that come from being governed by intellectual decisions is in the long run their future is most likely going to go how they want it because they considered their future in the decisions they make. The negative consequences of relying on intellect is always making decision with intellect might not make them happy all the time. Therefore overtime they may become sad and not be able to develop attachments to people, depriving them from ever getting married or having a social life.
