Science of deduction
This weeks article will teach you how to understand and be able to use deductive reasoning.
Intuition is the ability to understand something instinctively without the need for conscious reasoning. This ability can be seen in everyday life, the way certain problems surface and how through natural instinct we react., Examples include touching something that is hot without being aware of it. The human instinct is to back away as quickly as possible. However in deductive reasoning, the human intuition must be expanded and cannot be kept to such a basic form of instinctive behaviour.
So we need to develop our intuition. This is a form of evolutionary advantage that allows humans to glance and then understand who is a friend and who is an enemy. Intuition cannot be learnt it must be developed through personal experiences and and practice. It is a useful method in drawing conclusions about the human nature, such as the relationships and connections with other, these are normally linked with emotion. Thus institutions is useful when dealing with such situations
The human mind intuition can be summarized into 2 categories one is rapid intuition and is instinctive, this is based upon emotion.
System 2 is based upon a more slow and deliberate reasoning. Most people tend to go towards system 2, as provides a more logical way of understanding and omits the common tendency of humans. This is known as logical thinking. However in order to be able to use deductive reasoning a combination of system 1 and system 2 must be used in order to fully understand a problem.
As we age we gain knowledge and we begin to use our instincts in certain situations, we cannot explain why this is the right choice but we have this feeling that it is correct. This is due to unconscious reasoning behind the feeling that has been developed over years of experience allowing our brains to take all the facts and still come out with a quick answer.
A common saying is that after intense focus on one discipline, which would take up to 10000 hours a persons brain is physically altered to the point where instinct and intuition open up to a new level of thought. This would allow problems that would normally take hours to solve, can be figured out within minutes. The human subconscious is powerful. It drives out feelings and motives, since it is the true image of oneself and by completely understanding a field it will provide solutions to certain problems that normally wouldn't be thought of.
Deducing through studying a person
By watching and observing a person, it is possible to learn how they are feeling. Naturally some people are better than others, and women are better than men due to natural selection. However body can be learnt and it will provide information on the person. Their movements, style of walking, their tone each when put together like a puzzle form a complete picture that is a image of that person telling you who they are.
Their is guessing involved but as you gain more and more experience, you will start getting more accurate and closer to the truth, as you will be able to identify specific behavioural traits and mannerism that can serve as future reference.
Power of Observation
As I have previously stated, the quote “You see, but you do not observe”
Being observant is about slowing the pace down and taking time to look at the small details that are often overlooked. Increasingly people rush around spending little time observing and make assumptions based on obvious things without considering the fine details. The fine details are the reflection of the truth. They are closest to the solution you seek. This is because the little details are left alone, preserved as the large more easy to understand details are changed.
