Confusion regarding the definition...[edit]

The first sentence uses the singular form of skill, while later we see "analytical skills". Are there multiple analytical skills (I guess there are). What are examples of these? I assume there are. The definition of analytical skill(s) that the article starts with is confusing: "Analytical skill is the ability to visualize, articulate, and solve both complex and uncomplicated problems and concepts and make decisions that are sensical based on available information." What is the difference between analytical and problem-solving skills? Is there an example of a problem solving skill which is not an analytical skill? Are all analytical skills problem solving skills, too? The wording should be tightened up (e.g., "complex and uncomplicated problems": so all problems, right?). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Szepi (talkcontribs) 17:15, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
