Eight Elements of Thought and Reasoning
Everyone has elements of thoughts and reasoning to everyday situations. When a person
thinks, they think for a reason that exists within their point of view. This comes from
assumptions which also lead to realized implications as well as assumptions. People utilize ideas,
concepts, and theories in order to interpret facts and data, as well as experiences to be able to
solve problems, answer questions and also resolve issues within. How we think depends on our
thought in reasoning, which are eight elements. These elements are purpose, question, points of
view, information, concepts, assumptions, inferences, and implications & consequences
(Walters, Kerry 2010). These elements share process that I will break down into four categories.
Category 1 Assumptions and Implications & Consequences
Assumptions are known as beliefs in which a person takes for granted and are associated at the
unconscious or even the subconscious level in relation to thoughts.
The point of view is that concepts are related to theories, principles, hypotheses or ideas people
utilize in thinking in order to make proper sense of issues. Assumptions, Implications and
consequences were placed into category one because consequences and implications are usually
the result from assumptions.

In the past, I’ve learned that when the gas light comes on in a vehicle, I have roughly 20 miles to
drive until empty. I now have a new car, and the gas mileage is the same, but there is a chance
that this vehicle may not make it 20 miles when the gas light comes on.
Category 2 Questions and Information
A question is a sentence, phrase, or word that asks for information or is used to test someone’s
knowledge, whereas information is knowledge that you get about someone or something
(Solomon, S.A. 2009).The point of view is that people question issues in order to add guidance
to their reasoning; if a question becomes too vague, the thinking process begins to lack in
distinctness as well as clarity. The main objective or goal is known as the purpose for what
someone is attempting to accomplish.
The assumption is that, when someone is looking at something, it is known as the point of view;
their actual perception of a situation.
The explanation behind is that implications are considered truths or claims which logically relate
to other known truths or claims; these come from thoughts, actions support the consequences.
Questions arise when there is an issue at hand that requires information, or more information.
For example, my computer would shut down every other day at 3:00pm. This became annoying,
and unproductive. I sought to find information on why my PC is behaving this way.
Category 3 Purpose and Concepts
