We know that analytical thinking, when adopted as a part of our approach to events, significantly helps solving problems. Analyzing their behavioral patterns, one would establish that analytical thinkers:
- base on scientific facts in reasoning. Abstract assumptions that vary according to uncertainties and events put us in dilemmas in making decisions.
- set forth certain criteria when making decisions. Attempting to make decisions without a defined set of criteria prevents us from making meaningful choices.
- start solving easier problems first, and more difficult problems after, and conduct reasoning accordingly. For instance; if the TV is not working, they first go and check if it is plugged. continue asking the next complicated question when they solve a previous stage of the problem.
- make comparisons before making a decision. For instance; if input A causes problem C and input B also causes problem C, then the origin of the problem is most likely not A or B.
- develop forward-looking projections. For instance: if my action A led to outcome B in the past, then I may obtain outcome B by taking action A in the future.
- analyze their own lives and the events around them within the framework of an established system. act on the basis of a system they have already established if they meet similar situations in the future.
Happy analytical thinking…
