According to him, convergent type of thinking is just as important in the success of science as is the divergent type of thinking. He says that although these two thought processes are completely contradictory to each other, the tension they generate has the ability to bring out the best outcome in a scientific research. He compares this tension with how scientists normally abandon a scientific practice in pursuit of another one that is new or incompatible with the old one. He says that this revolution is one of the major factors of success in any scientific work (p. 460).
According to Kuhn (1991), essential tension is very important in the area of scientific research (p. 458). He says that this is the tension that is brought about by the combination of two completely different ways of doing things. He also says that revolution is essential in the success of any scientific undertaking. I concur with the author on the issue of conflict that comes about as a result of changing the way that we do things in our daily lives. However, I also do not think that opting for one way of doing things should result to a conflict. Revolutionalizing some aspects of some aspects of our everyday lives is inevitable, but the revolution should be done rationally.

Therefore, when technology presented a new way of storing the same information, many people abandoned the old storage and opted for the soft copy mode of storage. This is not to say that it is very safe, but it is better than the old method. The ability to be flexible must be one
