REALISTIC THINKING

Realistic thinking is encapsulated thinking processes grounded in an honest appraisal of all relevant data and conditions in different situations. Realistic thought allows a clear-headed adaptation of thought and behavior and depends on the ability to interpret conditions and facts of the situation in a consistent and accurate manner.
