TYPES OF MIND
Did you know there are three types in your mind? No, I am not
talking about the cerebrum, cerebellum, and medulla.
According to psychology, the mind has three types; Emotional
mind, rational mind, and wise mind. The way a person reacts or
responds to a situation can be determined by the type of mind
they use for the same. It is applicable to any and every situation
in one’s life.
Let’s say you have to leave abroad because you got an

only on the logical part of the situations. Regardless of how
much harm can the decisions do to the emotions of a person;
the decisions made by this mind are only logical.
3. The Wise mind- The wise mind is the one that does not

of mindfulness. It is a combination of both emotional and
logical thoughts and the outcome is very neutral.
There is no mind that is less or more important. It is the
situation that plays a major role. And to act right in the right
situation is the only need.
