The nature of logic and perception
Logic is the science of reasoning or sound reasoning. Logically the only reasoning I seem to understand is my own. This has caused me to make many wrong decisions.

Perception is the act or results to perceiving as well as the ability to understand. My perception of people and the thing that they are capable of always comes to a surprise to me. I generally perceive people as being good and always give everyone the benefit of the doubt. If you do not understand the situation that is going on your perception of reality will not always be what you except it to be. Logic and perception is really to understand what is really happening verses what you what to be happening. Astronomer Carl Sagan famously said, "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." Although sometimes we may have evidence right in front of us, most of us still do not want to come to grasp of what is really going on.
Critical thinking has a big part to do with sound reasoning and the ability to understand. I think that critical thinking is weighting out all possibilities before coming to a conclusion. Using critical thinking helps us to rule out assumptions and it helps us to come up with what sounds or seems to have more logic.
I can identify with a situation that happen to me where I didn’t use logic and my perception of reality was far from what was actually taking place. It also changed my perception of reality and the truth.
