  1. Conventionally, thinking can be divided into two types. Logical – let's call it correct, and predicative – it's not quite correct. In the case of logical thinking, people use different methods (deduction, induction, comparison, generalization) to make a logical conclusion. In the case of predicative thinking, people (usually mistakenly) take some feature that is not decisive and in general can only be inherent in the subject at a given time and draw conclusions (most often also wrong)
    As an example, we can take the phrase “Vegetarians do not eat meat” If we say: Anton is a vegetarian-therefore he does not eat meat this is logical thinking and a logically correct conclusion. But if we say Anton didn't eat meat – hence he is a vegan-this is predicative thinking. We just took some feature that we just saw and tried to draw a conclusion. And it's wrong. Anton hasn't eaten meat right now because he's on a diet, he doesn't feel like it, the meat isn't delicious, etc.
