Creative Thinking

Transcript: Critical Thinking Critical Thinking can be DEFINED by… The lawyer who found the loophole to free his client. The computer repair technician who found the one tiny circuit problem in your computer. The teacher who finally found a way to teach Johnny to read with pictures. The student who discovered that reading the material before class made listening easier. CHARACTERISTICS OF CRITICAL THINKERS Are open-minded and objective Do not manipulate other people Seek truth in all matters Use credible sources Are not judgmental Are willing to change Make their own decisions Are creative Are honest with themselves and others Use a variety of research for evaluation Question situations and assumptions Are skeptical Steps in Critical Thinking Step 1: Evaluate sources of information.

It can be chaotic and disorderly—downright crazy—at times. Never be afraid to ask ANY question, even those you think may be silly. Jot your weirdest and funkiest ideas down; you may need them later. Take risks! Greatness has never been achieved by playing it safe. Dream, and dream big. Hone your sense of adventure and exploration by playing and thinking like a child. Force yourself to develop at least five creative solutions to any problem you face. Force yourself to do something old in a new way. CORNERSTONES OF CRITICAL & CREATIVE THINKING Use only credible and reliable sources. Distinguish fact from opinion. Be flexible in your thinking. Use emotional restraint. Avoid generalizations. Strive for objectivity. Reserve judgment. Do not assume. Ask questions. Seek truth.
