Analytical skill 1

Analytical skill
Analytical skill is the ability to visualize, articulate, and solve complex problems and concepts, and make decisions
that make sense based on available information. Such skills include demonstration of the ability to apply logical
thinking to gathering and analyzing information, designing and testing solutions to problems, and formulating plans.
To test for analytical skills one might be asked to look for inconsistencies in an advertisement, put a series of events
in the proper order, or critically read an essay. Usually standardized tests and interviews include an analytical section
that requires the examiner to use their logic to pick apart a problem and come up with a solution.
Although there is no question that analytical skills are essential, other skills are equally required as well. For instance
in systems analysis the systems analyst should focus on four sets of analytical skills: systems thinking, organizational
knowledge, problem identification, and problem analyzing and solving.
It also includes the way we describe a problem and subsequently finding out the solutions.
