Thinking 2 Critical Thinking The purpose of this paper will be to describe critical thinking and examine how critical thinking skills can be used to foster solutions to universal problem solving. Michael Scriven & Richard Paul define critical thinking as “the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action” (Critical Thinking Community, para. 3, 2009). Using critical thinking skills allows people to construct the best solution in all circumstances. Critical thinking skills are developed by analyzing conscious thought to develop rational solutions to problems. Most decisions are with immediate gratification in mind, long term decision-making requires reflection and critical thought (Paul & Elder, 2006). People who make irrational decision fail to use critical thinking to devise solutions. Using critical thinking skills allows people to make decisions that yield the best possible solution based on a given set of alternatives. Thinking critical requires the development of specialize thought processes. Critical thinkers are able to evaluate, reason, and identify the best solution. Personal Critical Thinking Experience
