  • I have always found it hard to meet the requirements of being a student. Ever since my years of high school, I really have no idea what professors are looking for to give good grades. After some google searching, I found this service ⇒ www.WritePaper.info ⇐ who helped me write my research paper. The final result was amazing, and I highly recommend ⇒ www.WritePaper.info ⇐ to anyone in the same mindset as me.

Critical Thinking Skills

  1. 1. Critical Thinking Is all about FACTUAL SOLUTIONS
  2. 2. Characteristics • Asking questions • Defining of a problem • Examining the evidence (not opinion) • Analyzing assumptions and biases – ours and other people’s • Avoiding emotional reasoning • Not over simplifying • Considering other interpretations • Tolerating ambiguity and doubt – necessary! • Skeptical – How do you know? • Is it opinion or fact? • Credible Sources
  3. 3. Things to know about Critical Thinking • Is colored by our beliefs, values and perceptions (sometimes these things are unconscious to us) • Is a discipline (like music, sports, etc.) and takes practice and dedication • Consists of: observation, experience, reflection, evaluation of data or action, reasoning, communication and analysis
  4. 4. Things to Know (continued) • It is a higher form of problem solving • Is considered rational and a higher order of thinking – However – since some judgement comes from the unconscious mind, we have to CHALLENGE our assumptions, beliefs (why do we believe) and opinions • Assess your own thinking
  5. 5. Principles of Critical Thinking 1. Ask what CAN be done; don’t focus on what canNOT be done. 2. Look past the first impression or judgement. 3. Ask/Reasons – HOW do you know? What is the source? 4. What is the alternative hypothesis, conclusion or point of view? 5. Be a knowledge seeker!
  6. 6. Principle 1 • Ask what CAN be done; don’t focus on what canNOT be done. – What does the client want to hear? • A Solution! What can you do within company rules? • Do you need to refer them higher up the authority chain? – Think outside the box! Is there a “work-around”, or alternate way to get the desired result? – Never Lie, or throw out a “maybe”. People hear “maybe” as fact and “will” and when it doesn’t happen they feel lied to.
  7. 7. Principle 2 • Look past the first impression or judgement. – Think of story about the rich person dressed as a bum. – First impression of news story. Is there more to it? What is the alternate theory? – Argument – 2 sides to every story. Factual solution is somewhere in the middle. – Continue to seek information even AFTER you think you know it all. Because you never know it ALL…
  8. 8. Principle 3 • Ask/Reasons – HOW do you know? What is the source? – Is it a good/reliable source? • Schools, research facilities, factual statistics without interpretation • Must be unbiased, precise, number of participants in study (100 or 100,000 – is this representative of whole population affected by study?), free of logical fallacies. • Can the milk company publish unbiased research about the benefits or detriments of drinking milk? • What is interest could they (source) have in the outcome? – Could it be interpreted in a different way? – Correlation does not equal causal link. – Is it an opinion or fact? A stat is a fact, an opinion is the why those numbers are what they are. – Manipulating date to give or imply answer we want it to be is NOT critical thinking!
  9. 9. Principle 4 • What is the alternative hypothesis, conclusion or point of view? – WHY does a client want something? What is their point of view? – Can both sides be “right”? – What if it’s not your job? – Be willing to adjust our opinion. What are both sides of the story? What is the reason? What is the evidence? – Evidence shared can change your point of view.
  10. 10. Principle 5 • Be a knowledge seeker! – Ask questions: • Who • What • Where • How • Why • Why • Why!
  11. 11. THINKING • Critical thinking – REQUIRES thinking. – It requires going beyond the obvious and looking for other angles, other reasons, other facts, other meanings than our own interpretation. – It means being “critical” of what we think we know. It means questioning.
  12. 12. Practice - Ask yourself: • What is – Conclusion or main point – Reason for conclusion (point of view) – Do the reasons establish the conclusion, given the alternatives? – Pay attention to the situation – Clarity – Are the meanings clear?
  13. 13. Critical Thinking Does Not Occur in Isolation • Be realistic: – We are ALWAYS judging something. • Quality of our food • Was the book a good one or bad one • TV shows • Judging local or national politicians • Parents • Our kids • Our friends or acquaintances • Is what “they” did good or bad? • Critical thinking goes beyond the snap judgement and is NOT about “good” or “bad”. It is about “What IS”.
  14. 14. Remember Critical Thinking is about taking that “judgement” to a deeper and questioning level. Enjoy the Process! 2015 Copyright. All rights reserved.
