Inductive Reasoning



Inductive Reasoning:
+ add to my flashcards
Inductive Reasoning is a style of reasoning in which decisions are made and conclusions are reached by a process of analyzing available evidence and past experiences. For example: a child learns that if they touch something hot and get burned, they reason that touching hot things is not a good idea and learn not to do that again, or that if they do something that pleases an adult and get a reward, that this is a behavior to repeat.
