Value and Other People
The Primary Values of a Critical Thinker
By Carissa Torres, Roxana Palacios, and Stacy Vasquez
We learned as we keep a conversation going, it is important to be aware of people that are not accustomed to be asked many questions about who they are. For that reason, having values as a critical thinker is significant to approach others with cation when engaging in a conversation.
Avoiding the dangers of groupthink can help us not fall for the negativity of others influences.

Groupthink is damaging to our values because when there is a majority of a group that believes something we don't, we tend to fallow them in their beliefs and conclusions, forgetting about or own beliefs and questions.
Values of Other People are qualifications that other people want us to meet if they are involved in our lives.
In other words values, is a fundamental keyword that some people have in their lives.

After reading the primary values of a critical thinker it is of great importance to practice these standards in order to strengthen your beliefs and self confidence.

Values are ideas someone thinks are worthwhile. Values are the unstated ideas. They provide standards of conduct which we measure the quality of human behavior.
As you create your list of values, focus the ones that are so significant that they can effect your behavior in any way.

Greeting Students,
Welcome to Chapter 2;
Asking The Right Questions
Ninth Edition By
M.Neil Browne and
Stuart M. Keeley
The Primary Values of a Critical Thinker.
As a Critical Thinker, you will be perusing better conclusions, better beliefs, and better decisions

What are the Primary Values of a Critical Thinker?
Autonomy- Requires us to listen to those with values value priority different from our own.
Curiosity- Part from what you gain from other people is their insight and understanding, when what they have to offer meets the standards of good reasoning that you will learn when asking the right questions.
Humility- recognizing that even the smartest people in the world make many mistakes. each week provides the ideal platform for engaging actively with other people.
Respect- All conclusions or opinions are not equally worth while.
As long as we are interacting with others who share the primary values of Critical thinking, our questions would be reserved as evidence that would make us partners in the search for better answers to questions that we share.

What do you see the word "An Argument" ?

In an ordinary conversation, an argument reserves to a disagreement, when a time of blood soars. However, an argument is a combination of two forms of two statements: a conclusion and the reasons allegedly to supporting it.
Avoiding the Dangers of Groupthinks
(We concluded this chapter with a warning!)

When the people we whom interact are collectively engaged in sloppy reasoning the pressures to go along with them can test the character of even the best critical thinker.
