Our Psychologists say

Logical reasoning is defined as the process of using a rational, systematic series of steps to arrive at a conclusion. Individuals who have high levels of logical reasoning will base their decision making on factual data rather than emotions or 'gut-feel'. This makes their decisions much less risky. They are also able to take their learning and apply it to other situations more effectively.
