    Default Lateral thinking and logic?

    Not sure if this is in the right forum, but I have no idea what all the acronyms mean, so if someone could enlighten me that'd be great

    Right, well I always used to think Logics perhaps the most important part of problem solving, but now I'm beginning to realise that logic is actually quite limited in itself, and that lateral thinking is perhaps the bigger role. I'm not entirely sure atm, what do you guys think?

    Moved to a more serious forum.

    Could you describe in more detail what you mean by "logics" and "lateral thinking" and what makes lateral better? Thanks.

    Actually, I meant 'Logic' .. sorry .. just logic in general really. I think Lateral thinking is better, or perhaps more useful, because you need that extra, broader view of concepts to be able to really look back and SEE what you're looking at. Perhaps thinking laterally is actually the first step to solving a problem, to get all the information you need first.

    Any other suggestions?
