Great minds think alike(?)

December 9, 2011 3:47am CST
Is it true that great minds think alike? Doesn't the way of thinking differ from person to person? If the great minds think alike, does that mean dirty minds think alike too? I just need your help to come into a decision. I cannot decide this alone. Simply, are there people who think the same way?

Hi Dear, ALL Great minds or dirty minds cannot do not think alike.. Every one has their own individuality thinking.. to be true two great minds never accept one thing. Both will be opposite on that subject. Two great minds never come to one conclusion. Each of them feel they are only correct. And Creative minds think together. Hence we can say that some times creative minds think alike since they can think and work together. i hope you agree with me..please respond to this..

Yeah I get your point but there are times when some minds think alike. It depends on the scenario. They analyze it and sometimes there is only one answer. (1+1=2). Thanks for your comment anyway. Yes, those who think alike can work together. But it doesn't mean that different minds cannot. Anyone can work and live together if they can understand the other. Thank you!

I think at times there are great minds that think alike. One of the biggest factors in that though is how good of a friend you are with the person you're talking to. For example my friend and I keep saying 'get out of my head' because we are always coming up with the same ideas for a role play we are doing. Another big factor is what the person is thinking about in general. If its something scientific or something along the lines of that, often people will think alike because they reach the same natural conclusion by the clues the scenario gives. To put it simply, great minds and dirty minds can easily think alike. People differ but situations don't always. Neither does the people's responses to them.

Yeah, thanx. Its not they think alike. They just use their power of thinking to analyze the scenario and mostly come to the same decision. Isn't it?

That is pretty much exactly how it is, there are other instances of course between friends but far as in general its usually from analyzing.

I know it is not applicable at all times.People are grown differently.Some people are grown in a poor family,some are in reach ones.Some had a father,and some didn't.Some liked math when they were young;some didn't.I know intelligent people do not always think the way other intelligent people do.If all great minds think alike there would have been no debates about how the univers existed,or about alien life,or the possibility of existence of other countries that can sustain life.

With the number of people in the world, it is extremely possible that minds can really think somewhat a like. Obviously it is not going to be the complete copy, but there are times where people can rather line up to thinking. Of course while having the same thoughts right in the mind, it is the nature of getting to those thoughts, the road to them that might be different. There are just a lot of people who are rather like minded. There are just times where obviously thoughts are not going to be lined up completely because that would be absolutely insane. But there are times where it is uncanny how much minds might think alike. Yet with the people in the world, there is just so many possibilities that we reach the possibility thoughts can match up.

I don't think great minds think alike exactly. We just say it in our oral English. What we wanna express is not people think alike, but it's great people always think in the similar right way.We just wanna imply we are happy that there're people who agree with us.

Thinking differs from person to person. Any two individual can think alike when they are discussing on some common interests / goals. I don't agree if this is generalized. i.e no two people will think alike all the time for all the matters.

Well if you consider thoughts as specific considerations the answer would be yes. 1+1=2. It is an agreement or argument depending on how you look at it. The main thing that you are discussing though is it is the same thought, so yes, keeping in mind that people change and no two people think the same way all the time.
