what is critical thinking

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Critical thinking includes a complex combination of skills. Among the main characteristics are the following: Rationality We are thinking critically when we * rely on reason rather than emotion, *require evidence, ignore no known evidence, and follow evidence where it leads, and *are concerned more with finding the best explanation than being right analyzing apparent confusion and asking questions. Self-awareness We are thinking critically when we *weigh the influences of motives and bias, and *recognize our own assumptions, prejudices, biases, or point of view. Honesty We are thinking critically when we *recognize emotional impulses, selfish motives, nefarious purposes, or other modes of self-deception. Open-mindedness We are thinking critically when we * evaluate all reasonable inferences *consider a variety of possible viewpoints or perspectives, *remain open to alternative interpretations *accept a new explanation, model, or paradigm because it explains the evidence better, is simpler, or has fewer inconsistencies or covers more data *accept new priorities in response to a reevaluation of the evidence or reassessment of our real interests, and *do not reject unpopular views out of hand. Discipline We are thinking critically when we *are precise, meticulous, comprehensive, and exhaustive *resist manipulation and irrational appeals, and * avoid snap judgments. Judgment We are thinking critically when we *recognize the relevance and/or merit of alternative assumptions and perspectives *recognize the extent and weight of evidence
