What is critical thinking?
Critical thinking is a process of analyzing, interpreting, and evaluating information to inform actions. A critical thinker:
- Is able to process information and interpret it to make informed decisions
- Is good at solving problems
- Looks at things objectively—without biases or opinions
- Is rational and uses good judgment
As a strong critical thinker, you're able to make connections between ideas and concepts. You are self-guided, and make good decisions without needing someone to constantly monitor you. If you exhibit strong critical thinking skills, you're likely perceived as smart, precise, and fair.
