Hi Everyone, Though I know I still have a lot to learn about critical thinking, I have learned the most to pay attention to what is being said and really meant. I have also learned much about deductive and inductive arguments and how to determine between the two. As with one of my discussions in a prior week about the friend that came to visit our home, that was on drugs. I knew that my argument was that if he was on drugs again, he was not welcome in out home. However, I did not know that it was a deductive argument. I did not even know anything about deductive or inductive arguments until taking this course. I have also learned to be more patient. When my boyfriend and I talk about something or even argue, I now tend to listen fully to what is being said first. When I get all the information and get the whole of it, I can then take a few minutes to think of everything
