It's not the first time I hear this question. And it's not even about the "black or white" fallacy of the question itself, but about the important subject, at which the answer is hinting.
Since I began dancing tango, I've learned how to really feel. I've stopped avoiding certain emotions, which are generally considered unwanted – emotions like shame and rage. I've learned to express the entire palette of my emotions in dance – good thing that the diversity of moods in tango music allows us to feel everything from laughter and love to loathing. I've learned to feel my dance partner; to understand her without words is a priceless skill.
Our world tries its hardest to dissuade us from being guided by our feelings. Emotions and feelings are often contraposed with logic and reasoning and portrayed as superfluous and irrational. The goal of an advertisement, for example, is to prompt someone to make a decision based on emotions that were prepared for him by the marketing team.
