What is the difference between logical thinking and creative thinking?


Logical thinking and creative thinking are two different things. What do you think the difference is? Was Sherlock Holmes logical or creative while he solved mysteries? Would love to read your perspectives.

    Thank you, interesting! As I was listening to a BBC podcast the other day, Sherlock Holmes used science of deduction but at the same time he used creative ideas to find the truth, not alone by reason, which they were calling romantic reasoning.

    I love your answer, I also believe that reason (logical thinking) and creation (creative thinking) should go hand in hand or maybe have always been hand in hand.

    Statistically, exactly the opposite: the left hemisphere would be wording more; anyway, language is the single factor to unify the work of the brain; mere lateralization might be not enough for the explanation :)

    Thanks, yeah logical is following a set of steps with reason and creative is jumping from one step to any unusual area and creating connection.

    Yeah, actually they are different but overlap in many areas! Maybe we can think of logical creation or creative logic! Thanks!
