It's interesting that we're taught to not let emotions get in the way in interviews, even though unconsciously (iirc) we make a decision about hiring someone 30 seconds after they walk through the door. And I think there is a place there for acknowledging our feelings (biases) and evaluating someone on their skills and merits.

Beyond that scenario, though, your point about combining thinking and emotions makes sense, and seems to have been pointed out why gender-balanced teams tend to perform better than single-gender ones. There's a more natural balance with emotions and everyone comes out better in the end :)

I hadn’t even considered the gender-balanced team effect. Thanks for sharing.
