How does a scientist think?
This is a very broad question as every scientist alone is
different, but depending on what field you're in you'll think
differently as well. You can say scientists generally are
skeptical, analytical thinkers. Scientists generally think in a
paradigm, which is the knowledge that's currently in the field (so
what you learned in classes). Like if you were to guess what would
happen if you threw a ball in the air, you'd think it'd fall to the
ground because of gravity. The law of gravitational force is part
of the paradigm of science. Specifically you can say it's in the
paradigm of physics, but the idea is used by most scientists.
