What would life be like without emotions?

If we just had our logic and wits . In your opinion.

Report as

Without emotion/feelings we would be making many stupid decisions in life. Without emotions we would not have anything to guide our reasons. Emotions are the "GPS" of rationality.
Hope this helped.

No emotions = careless people
Careless people = crazed world
So we definitely need emotions :)

Don't emotions make us act carelessly acting on emotion and not using logic? Ask yourself this my friend .

Not really cold hearted. Because the world wouldnt have emotions, but it would have feelings. And just the feeling of love makes people care about others. To know more details, read my answer below. Gby

Well, i had my emotoins surgically removed (except for irony, ire, humor, and stubbornness), so I can tell you first hand that nothing surprises me, and I find that I enjoy watching other people screw stuff up, because my sense of sympathy is gone.

But joy or 'enjoy' is an emotion. So obviously you actually still have emotions.
Report as
Humor? This person may stubbornly assert that this is how enjoyment occurs.
Report as
Never thought about that. Maybe they're growing back. I'll have to talk to the doctor about this.

What does religion have anything to do with having emotions?
Report as
Religion has no logic, it was created by greed, fear, imagination.
Report as
@Lolo . I just read your question and that's a bit of a contradiction considering you just said emotion has nothing to do with religion . I would think your friend just changed her mindset .

That is hard to even imagine. We would all be the same in many ways so it would be extremely boring, and I would mostly miss having love.

Love is a feeling, not an emotion
Report as
Yes to me it can be many different emotions also
Report as
Do you know the differences between emotions and feelings? There are a few. For example: emotions are temporary. Feelings last for a long time. Sometimes fgorever if everything goes on the same course. Emotions are instantaneous. Anyone can feel an emotion ion any moment. Feelings take time to be formed. The reality is that emotions are products of feelings and events. So, the feeling of love would remain in the world, and the emotion that makes people think they arev in love when its not true, that would be gone. So, when people would date, it would be true love. Not just an emotion. Gby

No I don't understand and don't think that is true at all!!!!!!!!!

Well, you should analyze it. Put the emotions and their desriptions in one side, and the feelings and their descriptions at the other. Try to understand it and you will see, its true. Gby

There would be a HUGE WHOLE LOT less problems if people had no emotions. No one would kill on ''the impulse of the moment'' everyone would reconsider before starting a fight. People would listen more instead of just getting mad and going away. Keep in mind that emotions and feelings are two different things. No one would take wrong options in the middle of desperation, which is an emotion. No more emos. No more people getting heart broken because they chose the wrong person because they felt a strong emotion and thought it was love. There wouldnt be pastors who would feel the emotion instead of the Holy Spirit.

The main thing about this is that people wouldnt fight as much. They would talk more and fight less. People would be happier because they diodnt do mistakes becauuse of the impulse of an emotion. Oh, when people were to say that they love someone, they would mean it. It would be the actual feeling. Not just an emotion that only lasts so long. Gby

But there would be no happiness or love both are emotions or "feelings."
Report as
Lol:-),?!?!?
Report as
Those are feelings, not emotions. But emotions related would be joy, excitement, those butterflies in the stomach, those are emotions, but love lasts a long time, or forever if the course doesnt change. Same happens with happiness. If things dont change, it might as well last forever. Sadness being the feeling, sorrow would be the emotion. Hatred being the feeling, anger would be the emotion. Like I say, the emotions are the product of feelings. So, so0metimes someone knows their feelings by their emotions. Others think their emotions are their feelings. Gby

It might be more complicated.
What's your reason for doing anything if you feel no particular way about it


Should I bother to eat, drink or sleep
Should I even bother to move or speak at all

There would be no answer.
But without emotion you might not even be able to ask yourself those questions because the answer would not matter. If life is an equally agreeable/disagreeable option to death then it's all a coin toss. But you would be too apathetic to even toss the coin itself.

A friend of mine has a sister who is very emotional and expresses herself much. She didn't like being this way and would pray to God to take it away. He actually did one day. She realized how terrible it was to have no emotion. She never asked for that again.

Emotions were a quick and dirty solution in an evolutionary arms race. Had they not taken hold, life would be different--certainly--but if life were to continue, the result of this different victor in the arms race wouldn't see any of it as cold, or boring, or pointless, or Borg-like.

Well, I think a world without emotions would be pointless because you couldn't be happy, sad... You would be blank with no personality. Everybody would be lifeless, and there would be no motivation at all. Nobody would stand up for themselves. The human race would decrease, and one day there would be no more humans left because lack of emotion. Basically it would be quite a depressing sight to set your eyes on. So I'm glad we have emotions. :)

itd be completely pointless. we probably wouldn't have any of the things we do now like phones and tv. no one would have emotions to make that stuff. so basically we'd be like a bunch of zombies.
