Abstract Thinker vs Concrete Thinker
First, let’s define ABSTRACT and CONCRETE.
- thought of apart from concrete realities, specific objects, or actual instances
- expressing a quality or characteristic apart from any specific object (example: love, justice, poverty etc.)
- My teacher prepared an ABSTRACT topic to discuss so I had hard time understanding it.
- Modern inventions are the results of ABSTRACT thinking.
- constitutional an actual thing or instance; real
- pertaining to or concerned with realities or actual instances rather than abstractions
- Flowers, chocolates or any material gifts are CONCRETE proofs of someone’s love.
- We need a CONCRETE solutions for this kind of problem.
Thus, abstract thinker is someone who can think about things that are not physically in front of them. They use analogies and metaphors to understand the world. They can read body language and know the difference between verbal and nonverbal. They’re critical thinkers while concrete thinker focuses on what is physically around him / her. Concrete thinkers see a physical object and just think of what’s in front of them. They may see their surroundings, but not think of what is beyond their viewpoint.
Other than learning grammar rules, pronunciation and enhancing your vocabulary, level up your learning method and be an ABSTRACT THINKER!
