There are one or more conditions which exist when a situation or circumstance is logical. These are called pluspoints. A
Pluspoints show where logic exists and where things are going right or likely to.
Where things get better or there is a sudden improvement in an area or organization, the cause for this should be found to reinforce what was successful. Such an investigation is done by use of pluspoints.
The pluspoints are as follows:
RELATED FACTS KNOWN. (All relevant facts known.)
EVENTS IN CORRECT SEQUENCE. (Events in actual sequence.)
(Time is properly noted.)
DATA PROVEN FACTUAL.
(Data must be factual, which is to say, true and valid.)
CORRECT RELATIVE IMPORTANCE.
(The important and unimportant are correctly sorted out.)
EXPECTED TIME PERIOD. (Events occurring or done in the time one would reasonably expect them to be.)
ADEQUATE DATA. (No sectors of omitted data that would influence the situation.)
APPLICABLE DATA. (The data presented or available applies to the matter in hand and not something else.)
(Not wrong source.)
(Not going in some direction that would be wrong for the situation.)
DATA IN SAME CLASSIFICATION. (Data from two or more different classes of material not introduced as the same class.)
IDENTITIES ARE IDENTICAL.
(Not similar or different.)
SIMILARITIES ARE SIMILAR.
(Not identical or different.)
DIFFERENCES ARE DIFFERENT.
(Not made to be identical or similar.)
In finding out why things got better so they can be repeated, it is vital to use the actual pluspoints by name as above.
Pluspoints are, after all, what make things go right.
One can always know something about anything.
It is a wise man who,
Grasping that, he can then take action to find out.
If he evaluates the data he does find out against the things above, he can clarify the situation. Then he can reach a logical conclusion.
It is necessary to work out your own examples of the violations of logic described herein.
By doing so, you will have gained skill in sorting out the data of a situation.
When you can sort out data and become skilled in it, you will become very difficult to fool and you will have taken the first vital step in grasping a correct estimate of any situation.
