EAP: Mental Talks: Critical Thinking - Essential Skills Development


To learn essential critical thinking skills

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.” – Albert Einstein


Every day we face a sea of decisions and it’s impossible to make a perfect choice every time. But there are many ways to improve our chances — and one particularly effective technique is critical thinking.

Critical thinking skills are perhaps the most fundamental skills involved in making judgments and solving problems. We use them every day, and we definitely can continue improving them.

The ability to think critically about a matter—to analyze a question, situation, or problem down is what helps us evaluate the accuracy and truthfulness of statements, claims, and information we read and hear. We all use this skill to one degree or another almost every day.

Critical thinking can help us acquire knowledge, improve our theories, and strengthen arguments. It is the most valued and searched employee competence for 21th century. We use critical thinking as well to enhance work processes and improve social competences.
