in engaging in self-assessment, accomplished thinkers are not only actively analyzing their thinking  in all the significant domains of their lives, but are also continually developing new insights into  problems at deeper levels of thought. Accomplished thinkers are deeply committed to fair-minded  thinking, and have a high level of, but not perfect, control over their egocentric nature. Principal Challenge : To make the highest levels of critical thinking intuitive in every domain of one’s life. To internalize highly effective critical thinking in an interdisciplinary and practical way. Knowledge of Thinking : Accomplished thinkers are not only actively and successfully engaged in  systematically monitoring the role in their thinking of concepts, assumptions, inferences,  implications, points of view, etc., but are also regularly improving that practice. Accomplished  thinkers have not only a high degree of knowledge of thinking, but a high degree of practical insight  as well. Accomplished thinkers intuitively assess their thinking for clarity, accuracy, precision,  relevance, logicalness, etc. Accomplished thinkers have deep insights into the systematic  internalization of critical thinking into their habits. Accomplished thinkers deeply understand the role  that egocentric and sociocentric thinking plays in the lives of human beings, as well as the complex  relationship between thoughts, emotions, drives and behavior. Skill in Thinking : Accomplished thinkers regularly, effectively, and insightfully critique their own use  of thinking in their lives, and improve it thereby. Accomplished thinkers consistently monitor their  own thoughts. They effectively and insightfully articulate the strengths and weaknesses inherent in  their thinking. Their knowledge of the qualities of their thinking is outstanding. Although, as humans  they know they will always be fallible (because they must always battle their egocentrism, to some  extent), they consistently perform effectively in every domain of their lives. People of good sense  seek out master thinkers, for they recognize and value the ability of master thinkers to think through  complex issues with judgment and insight.

Relevant Intellectual Traits : Naturally inherent in master thinkers are all the essential intellectual  characteristics, deeply integrated. Accomplished thinkers have a high degree of intellectual humility,  intellectual integrity, intellectual perseverance, intellectual courage, intellectual empathy, intellectual  autonomy, intellectual responsibility and fair-mindedness. Egocentric and sociocentric thought is  quite uncommon in the accomplished thinker, especially with respect to matters of importance.

    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.
