Quyen Thi TrinhProfessor Ronald FeemsterSLS1515: CORNERSTONE EXPERIENCE 153 (15461)October 6th2019Journal Thinking 3Have you ever wondered what competencies are most important to make a personsuccessful both in either academic environments or work places? There are no exact answers butfrom my point of view I always consider the most important competencies every student issupposed to practice is critical thinking. Hence, do we have any specifical definition what it isand why it is so neccessary? According to “Critical Thinking Skills,” “critical thinking is clear,reasonable, reflective thinking focused on deciding what to believe or do.” It means askingprobing questions like, “How do we know?” or “Is this true in every case or just in thisinstance?.” Indeed, critical thinking is the ability to analyze the way you think and presentevidence for your ideas, rather than simply accepting your personal reasoning as sufficient proof.For instant, when I read the title “Prolonging autowoker strike in Detroit will decrease thenational GDP’’ on The Wall Street Magazine for Macroeconomics class, I wonder what kind ofrelationship between autoworker stike and the number of GDP is and how the researcher provesthat. Then I dug deeply on this problem and connected it with the relavant topic such asunemployment, union purpose, etc. That made me understand totally how the economicselements affect each other. I have debated and asked a lot of questions that have been on mymind. With using this technique, I am more likely to learn how to be an investigator.
Using critical thinking in a professional environment would empower your future
