This is used to obtain the factors, effects and importance of the data. This usually requires longer thought processes since the data need to be broken down for a further explanation. Evaluating is the process that determines the importance and the value of the given data. Because evaluating is a conclusive process, this is done after the data is analyzed. It is also associated with subjective thinking and therefore requires less thinking process as compared to analyzing. Evaluation Vs Reflection: Evaluation is the process of making an assessment or judgment about an experience. Reflection is the process of reflecting on your experience in order to learn from that experience or to relate to some implications.  ( the problem is leaving a narcisst relationship and how this decision change my lifestyle and moving on)
