You will learn about the science of deduction and 7 of the best techniques Sherlock Holmes uses personally in his strategy to make deductions.

The second tip is to use the process of elimination by the data you have gathered from the initial observations. After watching this video, you will understand the importance of visualizing and verbalizing as well, which are supremely important upon cultivating your deduction skills and methods. Any good detective and mentalist know these 7 great tips and will follow them daily, and eventually they become second nature habits that are automatically followed subconsciously.

This video is referring to both the BBC Sherlock Holmes played by Benedict Cumberbatch as well as the movies in which Robert Downey Jr. played.
