I work with people in my career, and often analyze interactions I have with different customers. Some are perfectly content in accepting the answers I give them. Some dig deaper and ask more questions, some present an entirely different approach. While it may be easiest for me if my customers simply accept my answer, it is quite interesting to see the viewpoints of an obvious critical thinker.

Nice video. This is pretty much everything I do in my Phil 102 class. It's funny how my com 101 and phil 102 class have so many of the same words but with different definitions. Critical thinking is the same though, and I believe it's essential for human beings to think critically about their beliefs and opinions to find the right answers in life.

Interesting video. I learned about critical thinking in my AlS class last term. I can say that I have tried to apply critical thinking in many aspects of my life but most with money. I was nice to see a refresher about critical thinking. I think I may go look over my old notes now.

I think that you do need to critical think to filter through all of the information we are given today,you never know who is giving an opoion or if it is a fact. If we don't use critical thinking we may get false information and believe it is true.

i like how the video talks about how you have to think about the flaws there might be. i dont like when people refuse to be wrong.

I really liked this video. I always have questions. My
(WHY (?'S)) I believe, are a start to start thinking critically. I also like to be aware of my weaknesses. Citical thinking makes everything much easier even though it make take more time. :)

I have to agree with Jason. I too am taking Phil 102 and alot of the terms from that class incorporate into COM. I think when we critical think about things, we think deeper into things and keep our brains more open than when we dont.

I like the reference to how hard the brain needs to think. But critical thinking will help one to make better decisions.

No matter what, critical thinking is such an important skill/tool that people should use on a daily basis. It helps broaden your mind and view things differently.

Karen Johnson Com 101-4080 said...

To be better at thinking does take a deeper thought process. It is dynamic. On the surface thinking is by someone that does not want to consider the other side. Either by choice or by ignorance.

It's interesting that humans have to practice deeper thought and more critical thought. Are we all pushing to become what we are not or are we all meant to be without practice?

I like the explanation that false dichotomies and that critical thinking does not mean that we must draw either black or white conclusions. Rather, “a critical thinker can handle uncertainty and prefers to be aware of their areas of ignorance.” That’s good news!
