Logic is incredibly important to allow you think through the stages of an experiment, analyse data, present you results, and critically analyse the findings of others.
Creativity is useful too though, for example for when you think you have exhausted all possible options and you have to try to think of a new way to get to the result you want. The best scientists can do both.
Hello, I think logical/analytical/numerical thinking is enough to get you through most of daily tasks in scientific disciplines/laboratories.
However, creative thinking (in the broadest sense – e.g. could be thinking outside the box, having lots of ideas, wanting to try out new ways etc) – is what makes you stand out as a scientist. Without creativity, we wouldn’t be able to discover anything new and have the courage to challenge old, widely accepted theories (think Darwin, Einstein and Copernicus – and the times they lived in!).
Creativity and logic together are very useful and the good news is that you can train both skills so good luck!
