Analogy

Document Actions

Using one situation (for example, a story of your experience) to demonstrate a resemblance or likeness between things, when in actuality the things are otherwise entirely different. An example you would be familiar with is the analogy of 'is the glass half empty or half full' to relate to a situation where a person is having trouble seeing things in perspective. Using analogies for learning enlightens the mind, because it enables it to discover things through a process of making connections.
