Thinking things through logically and examining them from all sides.
People who think critically can process information in a deliberate, systematic and logical way. With critical thinking, we analyse and evaluate facts in order to form a clear, rational and evidence based judgment. Critical thinking is an essential skill and is important for research, problem solving and decision making.
Critical thinkers challenge assumptions and biases in order to improve their understanding.
