“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” — Albert Einstein.

Logic

It helps you solve a problem step by step.

The word “logic” originates from the Greek word “logos”, which has a variety of translations, such as reason, discourse, or language.

Logic is defined as the study of the laws of thought or correct reasoning and is usually understood in terms of inferences or arguments.

What’s The Difference Between Creative And Logical Thinking?

Logic uses reasoning and analytical abilities. It seeks to identify the cause and effect.

Imagination

Imagination refers to the ability to think creatively by dreaming up stories, novel scenarios, and visual representations.

Creative people such as artists and writers have powerful, active imaginations.

Digital painting is an example of creativity.

“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.” — Albert Einstein.

Creativity involves elements of innovation, emotion, and chance.

Imagination helps you see what the problem is in the first place.

Without imagination, you’ll just be going around in circles;

Without logic, you wouldn’t know what the next step is.

We cannot for sure just rely on a single way to process and understand the world.

Imagination and reason have a well-combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects that can help increase technological achievements.

There are two types of imagination.

  • synthetic imagination
  • or creative imagination.
