2 Hagemann, B. and Chartrand, J.M. (2009). 2009 Trends in Executive development: A Benchmark Report (Technical Report). Oklahoma City: Executive Development Associates. Just because you are intelligent or have great knowledge does not mean you can think critically. A profound genius may have the most irrational of beliefs or the most unreasonable of opinions. Critical thinking is about how we use our intelligence and knowledge to reach objective and rationale viewpoints. Richard Paul 2006 ( )
11.9 13.6 13.4. . What Critical Thinking Is Not Thinking critically is not thinking negatively with a predisposition to find fault or flaws. It is a neutral and unbiased process for evaluating claims or opinions, either someone elses or our
own. Critical thinking is not intended to make people think alike. Additionally, there will always be differences in perception and basic emotional needs which prevent us from all thinking the same way. 53 Humans routinely draw conclusions in situations. Those conclusions are based on assumptions that usually operate at an unconscious level.
Reasoning and Argument Reasoning is thinking directed toward reaching a conclusion. Ideally, it is structured by logic, as defined earlier. For example, one may say to oneself, "This 70-year-old patient of mine has lung cancer, so he should stop smoking," thus inferring the conclusion that the patient should stop smoking from the diagnosis of lung cancer.
