These are the gist of Chapter 1:
· Definition of Critical Thinking
The definition of critical thinking is very wide-scoped. In the textbook mentioned earlier, it means ‘involving or exercising skilled judgement or observation’ using a wide range of cognitive skills and intellectual dispositions. For me, the easiest way to look at it is - its a process of thinking of your own thoughts.
· The benefits of Critical Thinking
The benefits of applying critical thinking in our daily lives is endless. I will make us so passionate, in a way, for clarity, precision, accuracy and intellectually honest to ourselves by acknowledging what they don’t know and recognizing their limitations. Critical thinkers will also have an open mind that can accept any point of view and analyzing them without any bias whatsoever. I can keep on blabbering about this, but ultimately, critical thinking is all about self improvement.
besides that,critical thinking make us become more matured,more understand and can think critically.. I know that this is difficult to learn about this..but try to understand it..
