  • What's the pattern here? - thinking with abstractions -- Linguistics & Logic 101

    How do you go from a concrete object like a basketball to an abstract idea like a circle? Why do you see the one and think about the other? What makes this kind of thing useful? Abstract thinking allows us to identify patterns and see common features. Once we abstract away the differences, we can group the similarities to come up with a new idea all its own. In just a few spare minutes, let's take a tour of the skills involved in this thought process and consider some practical applications.

  • Presence & the Art of Abstract Thinking

    Abstract thinking separates us from other forms of life, and it's a handy skill to possess. Abstract thinking is at the heart of technology, art, and much of the observable achievements of mankind. But the concept of abstraction is to throw away what is real and observable, and replace it with a conceptual representation. Unfortunately, abstract thinking has caused us to create and live in a virtual reality world, far removed from "this" (present moment reality). Awareness is the only tool you have to see through these abstractions for what they are: manufactured mental constructs that can keep you from being present.

In this tutorial SAMPLE, you will see examples of constructive patterns that you may get in a real Inductive (Non-Verbal Logical or Abstract) Reasoning test. The constructive pattern is where identical shapes multiply or decrease in number to form some continuously developing pattern. Logical (Abstract or Inductive) Reasoning tests are used by most of the graduate employers in selection/recruitment processes. Most popular providers/publishers of such tests are SHL and Kenexa. The test tutorial pack is designed in a similar style/format.
