Humans have a lot of incredible abilities. We can jump, run, throw things, speak, sing, dance, play musical instruments,… the list goes on and on. But we think one of the most unique and most incredible of all our skills is the ability to reason.
Cheetahs can run faster. Birds can sing and dance. Kangaroos can jump. But, as far as we know, no other species on the planet can solve problems and use logic like humans. Unfortunately, however, it can sometimes be easy for us to take that fact for granted. Just like a cheetah needs to practice running and pouncing as a cub to be able to catch its prey as an adult, we need to exercise our brains to get the most out of our ability to reason.
