What is Pragmatic?
Pragmatic is the characteristic of primarily focusing on the practical applications of ideas and thoughts, rather than their abstractions. Pragmatism is when you seek the best solution that is available to you; in contrast, idealism is thinking of the best solution possible, even though it might not be available to you. Dogmatic people, on the other hand, are people that always act based on a firm set of convictions. They will tend to act by the book no matter what. Pragmatism is widely respected in business, as innovation often comes from constrained optimization.
