Are you intentional with your critical thinking process? “Developing your critical thinking skills improves your problem-solving skills, boosts your decision-making ability, and gives you a methodology to tackle complex problems.” –Julia Martins.
One important step is to be aware of any cognitive bias at play and eliminate it from your critical thinking process. You can start by asking yourself these questions:
- Am I making any assumptions about this information?
- Are there additional variables I haven’t considered?
- Have I evaluated the information from every perspective?
- Are there any viewpoints I missed?
Biases aren’t always bad, but you need to be aware of them and put them aside when necessary to reach the best solution.
