pragmatic (adj) practical in dealing with problems.

You are pragmatic if you deal with problems in a practical and sensible manner rather than with the help of fixed ideas or theories. Being pragmatic is to be practical and to think of solving problems in a sensible manner rather than by going by ideals or principles. A statesman is pragmatic if in handling problems they go by their practical wisdom rather than rely on theories or principles.

  • Being pragmatic, he goes more by his practical experience than by rules and theories; his leader, on the contrary, insists on being guided by ideals and principles.
  • Without being pragmatic he gets involved in ideals and principles and that delays solutions to problems.
