Arguments can be broken down into 2 different types of arguments which are inductive
and deductive . Inductive being more logically incorrect basically assumptions , and not
facts. Whereas though deductive is more factual and their evidence to prove your point.
For example, you can argue a student is failing a class based on them following behind
their friends , which would be and inductive argument . However if you say a student is
failing a class because they missed all their homework assignments ,that would be a
deductive argument because its actual evidence to conclude the argument .Structure and
logic can really help out an any relationship argument because it helps you to
communicate better and to filter all non-important factors , and to use the premises of
information to come to and conclusion. Every day in daily life we communicate and
evaluate everything we basically determine with any conversation what is worthy
information and what is not reliable at all. Structure is need in everything we do to have
some bas line to which we establish as a medium .There are 2 types of arguments that
we can use both in our daily lives inductive and deductive. The key differences between
the two are the potential of the argument actually occurring. For example, inductive
arguments typically use words such as probably or most likely, indicating that there’s
potentially something different that may occur (Boss,2017). On the contrary, a deductive
statement is decisive, definite, and factual.We use these types of arguments in our daily
lives. They often serve as a trigger and help determine if something is truly a cause of
concern. For example, there are many changes going on at work. As we get closer to the
quarter, we begin looking at our budgets. There is a current freeze of additional expenses.
Due to this freeze, individuals are speculating this will potentially lead to a layoff. This
is not only an assumption but it also serves as an inductive argument. There is a budget
freeze; however, this does not mean that this will certainly lead to a loss of jobs. If I
allowed this to influence my morale or emotions, I would be more stressed, leading to
additional issues (i.e. production losses, decrease in quality, emotional distress, etc.) As a
result, it is important that we consider what type of arguments/statements we utilized to
balance out our options and reactions. An inductive argument is where all the statements
are correct in an argument; the conclusion is false/incorrect. An example, Elizabeth is a
keen runner. She runs daily. That would also mean Elizabeth's Aunt Mellie is a keen
runner also. Here you see that both premises are accurate, but the conclusion about her
Aunt may not be correct. A deductive argument is where the principles made in the
discussion support the conclusion of a case. An example, all cats have a good sense of
smell. Lily is a cat; therefore, Lily has a good sense of smell. In this example, the
premises are factual, and both support the conclusion. The use of logic happens in daily
life in general conversations. It helps us define what is true or false. It also helps us
evaluate various ideas and arguments that individuals make. It empowers us to become
better critical thinkers. To be able to decide on our own by sorting through all the facts,
you need logic to determine better what is the best outcome of a situation. Without it, I
feel like a lot of people may get stuck, not knowing what actual truth is and go by
hearsay and take it for fact. An inductive argument is more based on a hunch rather than
facts. For example, there is a missing car from the dealership and nothing was caught on
camera. The night that the car went missing two people closed the dealership. Person one
was complaining about having no money and not being able to pay the bills. Person two
complained about nothing. The day after the car went missing person one came to work
in a whole new outfit and was flaunting how they had more than enough to pay the bills
now. You would assume the person who took the car was person one, but you do not
know. A deductive argument is more factual. It is when you have an idea or a theory,
but can prove it based on facts. In general conversation I feel like I use logic a lot. I
think about if what the person is telling me is making sense. If it could logically be true.
Logic and structure affect my personal relationships because I always use them. An
example of logic affecting one of my personal relationships is when a co-worker told me
when she was in school, she used the rest room during a fire drill. She said when she
came out of the restroom no one was in the halls, and she was scared because she had
no clue what was happening and was all alone. I knew logically this could not be true.
When a fire drill takes place there are alarms and announcements. She would have heard
something. Deductive reasoning is stating a fact and providing supporting evidence to
show how or why the fact is actually true. Inductive reasoning is quite different and Is
used when arguments are presented to support something that is only thought to be true,
or thought to be a likelihood. Earlier today I was included to sit in a roundtable consisting
of 9 other local managers from different businesses but within the same industry. The
point of the meeting was to critique a local private trade tech school program. There was
a gentleman who not only used inductive reasoning throughout most of the day, but also
lacked logic in his arguments. This meeting began early in the morning and lasted all
day, it was rigorous. It required all 10 of us to dig in and provide some feedback and
use sound reasoning during this critique. Provide logical solutions based on the issues we
were presenting; amongst the room the goal was to present what we thought looked like
possible shortcomings or areas of opportunity in the program but also to brainstorm some
possible solutions for those presented issues. Using logic was vital to having this be a
productive meeting. Inductive and deductive arguments have several differences. Inductive
arguments favor the probability of outcome or truth. Deductive arguments favor the
necessity of the outcome or truth. Another difference is inductive arguments tend to only
provide support while deductive arguments tend to provide proof. It is important to
understand the differences to ensure decisions are made based on sound arguments. I
typically use logic in general conversations at work. It is important that I express my
intent clearly and objectively with my co-workers. This especially necessary to avoid any
type of miscommunication. At home I tend to be more relaxed. An example of the use of
logic and structure was during a conversation with my husband. He is close to retirement,
and I wanted to ensure that we are financially stable. He explained he was planning to
get another job to supplement our income. I explain the pros and cons of getting another
job. For instance, I provided evidence of the possible tax implications as a con. I also
provided data showing how the extra income could be applied to increase the success of
financial stability as a pro. When we both evaluated the outcomes, we were able to
determine the most reasonable solution for our situation once he retires. Inductive
reasoning is more of having a an idea of something and trying to prove it. Deductive
reason is when you know something is true and that you can prove it. Sometimes we
have arguments with people about certain topics, one person can have a inductive reason
and the other deductive or the other way around. With inductive reasoning you must be
prepared to prove your argument as just by referring to it will not prove it is true. One a
person is using deductive reason they expect that the other person does the same thing,
state facts and knowing where there knowledge is coming from. Sometimes it is easy to
use inductive reasoning to sound better in an argument but if you don't not have the
means to back up your argument it will fall in to pieces. You might sometimes see this
during your work places people arguing about something but not really a good conclusion
to the problem or issue. Inductive argument presumes that something is probable to
happen. An example of an inductive argument would be "I passed every quiz for my state
license, therefore I should pass my state exam." The argument suggests that I am probable
to pass the state examine because I passed every quiz, but this is not likely to happen. A
deductive argument is thought to be guaranteed with the truth using logic. An example of
deductive argument would be milk having a spoiled smell and is two weeks past the
expiration date on the carton , therefore the milk has spoiled. The expiration dated
confirmed that the milk was indeed spoiled due to the expired date. I would say that I
use inductive arguments a lot. Its easy to assume something is probable to happen. Using
logic and structure could affect personal communication because sometimes it can cause
one to seem like more of a know it all.” I myself like to use logic in my personal
conversations and I’ve been told numerous times by my boyfriend that I hate to be wrong
even when I have the supporting proof that I am correct. I think it can become a bit
annoying in some cases. When used properly, I think that logic and structure can help
strengthens one’s way of thinking and also help one view things from different
perspectives which is always good. The way that Deductive and Inductive arguments
differ from each other are, Deductive arguments are generally derived from truth and can
be backed by facts and Inductive arguments are derived from more of a place of feeling.
Meaning it can be how you make the person who is listening or reading feel and may
not necessarily be true but feels true in that moment.Using logic in a general
conversations is likely to happen almost all the time. Logic is necessary in daily
conversations at work, in our personal lives and relationships and even just being in
public because my belief is that we all were gifted with logic so that our brains stay
healthy and strong to be able to communicate with others.Logic and structure can
definitely effect our personal relationships and communications. My example is, while
growing up, I always, like most. thought my parents were super heroes. When I got older
and mature enough and became an adult, I realized that they were just human beings like
everyone else. To me that plays into if I were able to think logically my thoughts would
have been different because the structure our parents are taught and taught us is to never
let this world dictate or show defeat or sadness and that is why we always thought they
were super heroes and made everything look easy, they just moved on and always made
the best of what we had. Inductive arguments are different from deductive arguments
because inductive arguments are based on an assumption and is not guaranteed to be
accurate where as a deductive argument uses facts and evidence and is a solid argument
if it is in fact accurate. In general conversation, I believe that logic is used more often
than not. Some times we ask ourselves if common sense is really that common because
it seems like people make silly choices and don't think before they speak or act. However,
most of the time logic is a basic instinct that we all have and implement into our daily
lives and conversations. Using logic can help our daily interactions and conversations as
well as the ability to form new relationships. Being sensitive and able to think about how
others feel can help us better understand the people we interact with on a daily basis both
in our personal and professional lives. It's important to know that the things we think to
be true may differ from those around us, and this is what makes us each unique and
opens the opportunity for new relationships and interactions.
