Comprehending the ways your brain functions can change the way you learn, overall improving your way of life.
Logical thinking involves two distinct forms of thinking often referred to as inductive and deductive reasoning. The difference between the two comes from the order of reasoning and solid evidence or observations made. Both forms of logical thinking involve judgment on either ideas or observations. These conclusions are based on objective reality since neither form of logical thinking provides conclusive evidence without proof.
