This is a form of logic which involves synthesizing a theory from a series of facts or confirmed information. This is generally called 'theory building', or establishing rules from incidents and observation. Recurrent experience is a further qualifier, using common results to establish 'laws'. This is in fact a pretty common form of learning pattern, and although the usual context of usage of the term is somewhat patronizing, it's a natural logical process of developing working principles.
Examples of Inductive Reasoning:
If I use enough force, I can move an object. Therefore movement of objects requires application of sufficient force.|
