    romantic or fuzzy

    8-14 “It also includes reasoning and abstracting about feelings. That means that among those people that we refer to as warm-hearted or romantic or fuzzy, there are some who are engaging in very, very sophisticated information processing. This type of reasoning is every bit as formal as that used in solving syllogisms.”
    Does this "fuzzy" mean "kind"?

    Re: romantic or fuzzy

    "Fuzzy" is more like "warm and fluffy". People can get a "fuzzy" feeling when they're in love.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: romantic or fuzzy

    Literally, "fuzzy" means either something covered in fuzz (like a peach), or something that is unclear (like a bad picture on your TV screen). But in this case the writer is referring to an emotional "fuzzy" feeling - the warm, happy feeling one gets from hearing a favorite song, or seeing an old movie that stirs up happy, comforting memories.
