More than any time in history we need to be able to think critically. The Information Age, rather than making decisions easier by offering us more and better information, has made them harder by blurring the line between trustworthy and unreliable sources. Not to mention that the sheer volume of information we’re bombarded every day is overwhelming.
Nonetheless we still need to make choices. And with so many important decisions to be made about health, politics at the moment, as well as the usual financial and life decisions we have to worry about, the video above about how to prove our critical thinking skills feels like it couldn’t have come at a better time.
Rather than choosing an answer because it feels right, a person who uses critical thinking subjects all available options to scrutiny and scepticism. Using the tools at their disposal, they’ll eliminate everything but the most useful and reliable information.
