Question 27

Define critical thinking in five ways.Answer

1. First, critical thinking seeks to evaluate the validity of a claim by presenting oneself with arguments that will help the thinker know the validity of a claim.

2. From this, critical thinking is, as said in the previous questions, self-directed, self-disciplined, self- monitored, and self-corrective thinking. This means that a critical thinker is aware of his thought process, and evaluates it over and over again so that he can correct any preconceived notions and assumptions.

3. Because of this, critical thinking allows the thinker to have a clear and open mind that will entertain all sorts of claims, how absurd they may appear to be initially.

4. However, this does not mean that critical thinking will result in accepting all assumptions – after entertaining the claims, there will be a reasonable, disciplined, and controlled filtering process that will accept and reject some of the claims.

5. Lastly, critical thinking requires thinkers to use sound theories that explain how the mind works, and apply these theories in everyday decision-making processes. In the end, critical thinking involves criticizing one’s own mind.

Question 31

How can you apply critical thinking to your life and in business in five different ways?Answer

1. First, when we are presented with a claim or a problem, we must gather the necessary information needed to evaluate the claim properly and reasonably. We must be persistent in researching about the claim, so that we will not simply jump to conclusions as this can destroy us quite rapidly. Also, when we gather information, we must research furthermore where this information came from, as sources can affect the credibility of the information. For example, some guy tells me that my wife has been seeing some other guy. I should gather a lot of information about this claim before I confront my wife. Also, I should evaluate who this guy is (my father, my brother, or some prankster neighbor kid).

2. Second, after gathering the needed information, we must analyze it thoroughly. Weight out the evidence, conduct tests and experiments if this is about an academic research or a business survey.

3. After all of these, combine the findings and formulate possible conclusions. I can write these explicitly or this can happen in a few seconds only inside my head. As all these commence, we must remember to be open minded, and that in some cases, there is no absolute answer.

4. Consider and listen to the views of other people. In fact, it is better to try and put myself in the shoes of other people. For example, I have a heated disagreement with an officemate because he insists on cutting budget for production, while I defend my stand of increasing the budget so that quality products are made. Unknowingly, this officemate of mine can be the one who is pressured almost every day by questions of the board regarding the diminishing profits over the past few weeks, while I am not receiving that amount of flak. Considering this will push me to pursue an agreement that will benefit the both of us, in a clear and calm manner.

5. Lastly, I believe in trying to understand the background of the person talking to me. This is very much related to 4, but this involves the person’s ethnicity, cultural background, religion, job, etc. There are lots of listening that we need to do in life, and when we allow ourselves to really listen, then we can make each other’s lives better than before.
