Would you consider yourself more brain or more brawn? Both is an option as well. Explain.

What's considered brain and brawn is up to you. Just because you lean more to one side, doesn't mean you're extremely lacking in the other, so don't feel discouraged for choosing one side over the other.



I personally believe that I'm both. For brain, I'm common sense smart, I'm literate, and I have excellent control over my emotions. For brawn, I have a history of playing sports and weight training.

I'm both because I'm average, and don't exactly excel in either side. I just lack in certain areas. For brain, I'm lazy, which is the main reason why I don't consider myself "book smart." For brawn, I'm genetically big boned and lack flexibility, which is why I had shoulder issues playing baseball. I also have back problems.

Have to vote brain, personally. Work that out every day, but it's been years since I hit a gym.

Why isn't there an option for neither?

Ditto on the brain. I'm trying to go to the gym at least once a week, but I'm always reading, doing sudoku, playing puzzle games, etc. while commuting to work

Both. I'm also valued for both. Do a lot of physical activity but also a lot of thinking.

In an average week, I can go from days of gardening and stacking a thousand 40 lb bales of hay in the summer to mere hours later, discussing how to promote businesses, working on website dev, and doing bookkeeping. I err slightly more on the need to be clever more than anything else.

I've never really been in a fight, so I'm not sure about brawn. But I'm aware that my intellect is at least above average (although I can still be absent-minded at times).

Still, I make sure to always give my all to everything, whether its physical activity or problem solving to the point where people have even asked me where I get all my energy.

For years I was bullied for my size, they claimed I was stupid. Outsmarted them in schoolwork & took 5 of them ganging up on me when i threw them off. Even with five, they struggled to hold me down to punch me black and blue.

I hated people calling me weak because I refused to fight dirty like them, but the thing was I knew the difference between defending myself and using any means to trample them beneath my feet.

Thus, I consider myself both, with my brain being the better of the two, knowing when I stand a chance or to take a step back from it getting worse. I do however have strength in force, something I've scared my enemies and myself with.

When I was younger I scarred myself with the physical force i had, I was afraid my anger would consume me, take away my rational side. I finally came to realise that both my brains and brawn were both a part of me, only together was it a destructive force instead of one or the other. That anger/rage helped give me confidence, and self respect in not being afraid to admit what i like/enjoy. If anything it made me pity those who were nothing but sheep/robots, in that they do not stand out or express their own individuality.

People may call me weird or abnormal, but I'm me and don't see anything wrong with that.

Definitely brain for me. I have spent quite a lot of time in academia and desk jobs, and thus I have gotten out of shape as a result of it. I find ways to exercise, but just enough to keep me going and not exactly building up myself to do some intensive exercises. Not to mention, I have been getting pretty lazy lately.

Both at the moment. Fully believe in a "health mind, health body" philosophy. However, it is more work the older I become trying to keep my body from the natural entropic flow of time.

I went with brain. I think I'm kinda smart, well at least above average lol. I've been able to keep a 3.7 GPA while attending college, so that's gotta mean something.

Yo guys, thanks for answering, but I have to tell you that there is a reason why "neither" is not an option. I'm not asking if you're straight up brain or brawn, I'm asking which side do you lean more on. Even if you think you're the most ignorant, weak person or the strongest most intelligent person in the world, there is still a more dominant side. In the case where it was a tough decision, "both" would be your proper answer. It's like if you were asked "Which color do you like better, red or orange?" It wouldn't matter if your favorite color was blue because your only options to choose from were red and orange. You just have to go with the closest answer.

Not a big deal. I just felt if you saw from my perspective, you would be able to come up with an answer that was originally listed. If you still think neither, it would be nice if you could explain. Thanks!
