Converging thinking

The ability to narrow the number of possible solutions to a problem by applying logic and knowledge. Unlike divergent thinking which tends to consider problems in terms of multiple solutions and characterizes the creative process, convergent thinking, which narrows all options to one solution, corresponds closely to the types of tasks usually called for in school and on standardized multiple-choice tests.
