What am I…


What is emotion…

besides signals to the brain?

Your heart can't really think,

So is your "heart" really your mind?

I think it is.

Some people mistake me as a pessimist.

But I'm really a…

I'm really a…

What am I?

  • $\begingroup$ Yes indeed, I'm certainly a Questionist :). Not right, but so close, though. $\endgroup$ – Gracelyn Rioux May 7 '15 at 22:38

Not too sure, but...

You're a realist? Maybe even a scientist. Dunno

The part about the brain makes me think both the first and second. The heart line can also be made to fit both answers. However, the first answer really fits the pessimist clue.

Side note, why is the riddle symmetric?

I would have to say you were a Skeptic. It's pretty much in the same line as AJL's response, but I think this doubt about reality relates better to classical, greek skepticism.
