MOTM Dec 2011
Practicality is overrated :tongue:
It has to do with grasping concepts, seeing patterns quickly, and using logical thinking. Quickly determining the next number in a sequence demonstrates that ability. You see the pattern, you grasp the concept, and you figure out the next logical number based on your perceptions. The more difficult the sequence, the stronger those abilities must be to find the answer quickly.
That's why more INxx types and ENxx types score high on IQ tests than Sensors do. Ns often easily grasp what is implied over what directly stated and they trust those instincts more than a sensor will.
Conceptual & abstract thinking is very valuable in the real world, and more people need to realize that. It leads to innovation in the arts and sciences and progress in human relationships.
