everyday life people have to face a lot of hard decisions to make and a lot problems
to solve. Problem solving and making decisions is very essential in many
aspects of life, although some decision making and problem solving can be very
difficult to achieve. Critical thinking is a very important life skill to
acquire and by learning and mastering this skill, a person will be able to make
all the appropriate decisions throughout their life. According to the reading (http://www.criticalthinking.org/pages/defining-critical-thinking/766),
critical thinking is “reacting with systematic evaluation to what you have read
or heard.” I believe that it is very important to understand learn how to
critically think things through before just reacting to situations. Critical
thinking skills allows a person to see all sides of an issue, look for a lot of
different creative alternatives, approaches to problems and make well thought
out life decisions. When a person can use critical thinking to breakdown what
someone is trying to say or breakdown the different options to solve a problem
they can use their knowledge so they can make a smart decision. The different
skills a person needs to obtain in order to learn how to think critically is
first in order to consider the very importance of the issue and how to address
it correctly. Once the person realizing the importance of the issue they can
then begin to look for a lot more information by asking some very important
questions about the issue and thinking about the best answers. I feel as though
the purpose of critical thinking is to achieve a level of understanding,
evaluate viewpoints, and solve problems and making complicated decisions. In
order for an induvial to be a better critical thinker they must be able to
identify the issue, ask deep thought provoking questions, find a many new
solutions, be a good listener and learn to not judge people. I feel as though
when you have learn all this and many more things about how to critical think
then a lot of decisions that are made can be done so with the best knowledge. And
this can also help a lot of people live life a lot better in my opinion.
