What is the Watson Glaser Interpretation Section?

The structure and formatting of the Interpretation section in the Watson Glaser assessment are identical to that of the Deduction section, but there is a significant difference in the rules.

In the Interpretation section, each question presents a premise followed by a suggested conclusion, and your objective is to decide if the conclusion unquestionably stems from the premise.

While the Deduction section primarily relies on formal logic, the Interpretation section adopts a less formal approach. This might seem like it makes the task easier, but in reality, it adds an extra layer of complexity, making the Interpretation section even more challenging than the Deduction section.

Watson Glaser Interpretation Sample Question

I have a nine-month-old baby at home who typically cooperates when it's time to go to bed and falls asleep quickly. However, whenever her grandparents come over in the evening, she becomes upset when I try to put her to bed and continues to cry for an hour.

 My baby’s difficulty is mostly physiological—her grandparents give her chocolates to eat and the sugar makes her hyperactive.

Conclusion Follows
Conclusion Does Not Follow
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

The conclusion suggests a rationale that lacks explicit support in the text and lacks a high degree of probability.

In essence, it offers an interpretation based on our individual perspectives.

This type of fallacy is referred to as the "Reason Fallacy," and it is one of the four primary fallacies examined in the Watson Glaser Interpretation section. You can find more information about these fallacies in the Tips section on this page.

A Tip for the Watson Glaser Interpretation Section - Watch Out for the 4 Main Fallacies

In the Interpretation section, one can encounter various fallacies, but here are the four most prevalent ones. Be sure to assess whether you are committing any of these:

1. The Reason Fallacy – attributing a cause to something that is not stated in the initial premise.
2. The Indefinite Pronoun Fallacy – using indefinite pronouns like "all" or "none of..." incorrectly.
3. The Correlation-Causation Fallacy – inferring causation from a mere correlation.
4. The Jumping Into Conclusions Fallacy – introducing information that is absent from the original premise.

Detailed explanations and samples of these fallacies can be found in the Complete Watson Glaser Prep Course.
