Logic games are only a clear indicator of how good you are at logic games.
Seriously STFU until you have at least taken a fucking law school class.
I already have taken law school classes.
But you aren't in law school? Either way you are wrong and shoeshine is right.
When I studied for my MBA I took a lot of classes at the law school.
Not only that, for my job from time to time I've had to analyse various legal issues, predominantly pertaining to tax law and related issues. In one case, the partner at XYZ law firm asked me if he could use the flowchart I developed (regarding a complex issue) in lectures that he gave at various law schools.
I also am of the opinion that people have different abilities.
Personally, my athletic abilities are non-existent and I have lousy hand-eye coordination (to use a clear example)
If someone like me were to pursue a career as a professional athlete, it would be ill-advised, but so be it - there's no harm in it.
However, if someone like me were to pursue a career in surgery, that would be very dangerous and I think I should steer clear of it.
I don't mean to be high and mighty, but not everything is for everyone. Logic games are not just an indicator of how well a person is at logic games, but how good a person is at logic. This has many real-world applications, as it really is a matter of how well you can piece together various clues.
A criminal investigation, for example, often involves a lot of clues (evidence), which, when taken together, lead to a certain conclusion. That is a logic game. If you can figure out that certain clues don't fit the conclusion, then you can figure out that the client didn't do it.
(or, if you can sow doubt into the minds of the juror that the clues don't fit the conclusion, then there's reasonable doubt)
On that same note, understanding the logic of it will give you knowledge of whether certain evidence, if inadmissible, would make the case unwinnable for the prosecution
