Critical thinking is being a critic of your own thinking process. Critical thinking begins with assumptions. Assumptions is either bad or good. Critical thinking happens when we submit our thinking or the thinking of others to the tribunal of logic and good sense. (pg. 10) This involves being able to determine that there is a logical answer to problems or issues and to see the problem for what it really is. Critical thinking is done by being completely unbiased. This can be hard sometimes because of our emotions. Our emotions make up who we are which can sometimes causes problem when making a critical decision. In order to manage our emotions we sometimes need to argue with ourselves or others whether or not if something is true or not true. Critical thinking allows a person to decide whether or not the other person’s argument is based on false reasoning and it helps the person to come to a conclusion about the issue at hand. Thinking critically is to come to a conclusion that is correct and to make a decision on it. Critical thinking is not a formed decision but a decisions that have been thought through and weighed to come up with the best conclusion. You have to think about the outcome you are trying to get without being biased. When using critical thinking we might evaluate an argument as worthy of acceptance because it is valid and based on true premise. Critical thinking is another way of taking up the problems and knowing how to solve them with a sound decision and mind.
My answer is different from week one because in week one I did not have a full understanding on critical thinking. I knew the basics of critical thinking but after getting insight on it, it help me to really understand when a person needs to use critical thinking and how to use it.
