Critical thinking

  1. 1. Critical Thinking
  2. 2. The 3 Keys of Critical Thinking.
  3. 3. What Critical Thinking IS NOT: -”Thinking a lot.” You can waste a lot of mental energy on something but make no progress until you think critically about it. -”Being smarter than the average person.” Anyone can be a critical thinker. All one needs to do is listen (or pay attention) and ask questions.
  4. 4. All questions are NOT created equal “Why is this so difficult?” is a useless question. “What part of this do I understand, and where do I start getting lost?” will get results.
  5. 5. How do I think critically? -Ask for clarity. If you don’t understand what someone is saying (or if they are using a bunch of words that don’t mean anything), ask, “What do you mean by...?” -Ask for evidence. “How do you know this?” “Where I can I learn about this?” -Do not be intimidated. If they squirm or try to ignore you, or dismiss you, stick to your guns.
