Problem Solving Skills

Ability to consider the probable factors that can influence the outcome of each of various solutions to a problem, and to select the most advantageous solution.  Individuals with deficits in this skill may become “immobilized” when faced with a problem.  By being unable to think of possible solutions, they may respond by doing nothing.
