Learnex, English Forever ¡Aprende Inglés para Siempre!

During the history of humanity, men have improved their world basically solving problems, sometimes in innovative ways and some other not very disruptive ways, however they have gone beyond and have developed many techniques which help them overcome the setback they have found.

There are many techniques in different scopes, but today we`ll check How do I improve my logical thinking and problem solving skills? Here are some of the steps that one can take to build on to the skill.

Focus and attention: When you face a problem, give it your full focus. Think only about the problem and forget everything else.
Suspect your memory: While memory may be good for various tasks but when it comes to logic, memory is a bad master. Scrutinize your memory and don’t trust it completely.
Avoid multitasking: You cannot do two logical thinking activities at once.
Diagrams are your savior: Always use paper and pencil, draw flowcharts, boxes, circles, to represent logic. Since you have not used your left-brain that much, you will use your right-brain to wake up your left-brain. After you have developed sufficient skills you will be able to do much of this stuff mentally.
Read good books: Find books on logical reasoning, which promises to build the skills from ground up. Never try to master too much at once, take is slow and steady.
Take online tests: Find some good online tests e.g.



  • Disruptive: Breaking the tendencies of an industry, stopping something from continuing as usual.
  • Setback: Obstacle, delay.
  • Scope: Field, extent, the range of a subject.
  • Face: Accept something, to deal with a situation.
  • Flowchart: Diagram of a process.
