Inductive reasoning - Intro to Psychology

  • 0:01 - 0:04
    The other type of reasoning is inductive reasoning, and this is when we draw
  • 0:04 - 0:09
    general conclusions from specific information. Now this is different than
  • 0:09 - 0:12
    deductive reasoning where we can make certain and necessary correct
  • 0:12 - 0:16
    conclusions. With inductive reasoning, we can only rely on highly likely
  • 0:16 - 0:21
    outcomes. For example, you may say that all cats you've known have been
  • 0:21 - 0:25
    friendly; therefore, all cats are friendly. And that may be the case for your
  • 0:25 - 0:29
    experiences. But for me, I've known some friendly cats, but I was also attacked
  • 0:29 - 0:34
    by a pack of feral cats when I was a little girl. Therefore, your inductive
  • 0:34 - 0:37
    reasoning is different than my inductive reasoning, and we can't be sure that
  • 0:37 - 0:41
    we've come to the correct conclusion. But let's go to Greg now and he's going
  • 0:41 - 0:44
    to discuss inductive reasoning in a little more detail.
