The three different types of thinking being discussed are creative thinking, logical thinking, and persuasive thinking. A good workplace examples of creative thinking is, while working as the manager of the search pit, it became necessary to find a new way to search vehicles. The old way was not working anymore and this left the Air Force base vulnerable. A plan was devised to implement working dogs, as well as an x-ray machine to help search for weapons and drugs. This creative thinking lead to the capture of five Iraqi citizens trying to enter the base in the back of a large vehicle, which otherwise would have gone undetected. Logical thinking is the process of using your mind to consider something carefully. In the workplace logical thinking is used quite often. While working in the office, it becomes necessary to use lifting equipment to move heavy tools and machine parts. This is where logical thinking comes into play. Logic says the heavy piece being lifted would cause injury to the person lifting if done without the assistance of another tool. Logic also says there is a crane or a forklift, which is easy to use. If used properly, the crane or forklift would get the job done twice as fast if not faster, as well as creating a safe work environment in which to work. Persuasive thinking can be somewhat more challenging in the work place to use than creative thinking and logical thinking. Persuasive thinking can help the acquisition of critical thinking skills because it teaches one to create their own alternatives to problems instead of merely analyzing those of others. The use of persuasive thinking in the workplace can help those whose critical thinking has not been atoned yet. As you can see using these three types of thinking in the workplace can create easier and more efficient places for people to do their jobs.
