able to base their judgements on ideas and evidence able to recognize errors in thought and persuasion able to recognize good arguments from bad and fallacious arguments willing to take a critical stance on issues willing to accept mistakes, correct them and apologise able to ask penetrating and thought-provoking questions to evaluate ideas in touch with their personal thoughts and ideas about a topic willing to reassess their views when new or discordant evidence is introduced and  evaluated able to identify arguments and issues able to see connections between topics and use knowledge from other disciplines to  enhance their reading and learning experiences SUMMARY: The need for Criticality and Creativity e) The need for criticality and creativity From the above we can conclude that the role, value and importance of critical and creative thinking  cannot be over emphasized. The need to think critically and creatively is the pedestal to human  progress, innovation and invention. The successes achieved in human endeavor all over the world  are as a result of our ability to think beyond the conventional ways. Critical and creative thinking is  the best way to reduce and or eliminate all the hurdles of life that bedevil human beings. There is  therefore need that we encourage people not only to think for themselves but also to embrace  criticality and creativity as a way of reducing human suffering and eliminating mediocrity in our  decision making and problem solving strategies. NOTE The engine that drives the world to prosperity and progress is human thought, and it is the ability to  think that distinguishes a human person from other beasts of nature.  Your level of thinking  determines your place in human society: - choose to think.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
