Critical thinking is the objective analysis and evaluation of an issue to form a judgment. Critical thinking has two main components:
the information and beliefs that generate and process skills
the habit of using these skills to guide behaviour
A well cultivated critical thinker:
raises vital questions and problems
gathers and assesses relevant information
comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against criteria and standards
thinks in an open-minded manner, taking into consideration alternative schools of thought
communicates effectively when trying to find solutions for complex problems.
Many people assume that because they think they are automatically, critical thinkers. However, critical thinking requires memory, attention, speed, flexibility and problem-solving skills. A real critical thinker is assertive, active, proactive and analyses a problem and its surrounding issues thoroughly. On the other hand, a non-critical thinker is passive, lazy, reactive, stubborn and solely considers the superficial aspect of a problem.
