Why should we avoid being emotional when making a decision?


Native speaker’s answer


Because if you're making a decision based on emotions, those emotions will affect the outcome. So if you take it personally or respond in anger, outrage, or another strong emotion, the results may not be the most beneficial. It's best to make decisions looking from all points of view and not just your own so that it's as objective as possible. It also shows good business and leadership skills if you respond in a controlled and calm way so that others might remain calm too, and you can think clearly.
