Critical Thinking

Resource 1

Critical thinking skills help you think logically and get to the bottom of persistent problems. These skills help you avoid logic traps and make you a more independent thinker, capable of coming to intelligent conclusions. Critical thinking is a valuable 21st-century skill because it allows you to evaluate information that could be biased or misleading and see problems in a new light. A fundamental part of decision making lies in the ability to be a critical thinker. The internet has exposed everyone to a wealth of information, but not all that information is quality or correct. Your point of view could be easily skewed if you don't understand how to break down problems and find solutions. Knowing how to evaluate information can liberate your thinking.
