How to Develop 5 Critical Thinking Types - Forbes

How to Develop 5 Critical Thinking Types - Forbes | Community, Education, Information and Resources. | Scoop.it

Great leaders think strategically. They can understand and appreciate the current state as well as see possibilities.

 

- Critical thinking is the mental process of objectively analyzing a situation by gathering information from all possible sources, and then evaluating both the tangible and intangible aspects, as well as the implications of any course of action.

 
- Implementation thinking is the ability to organize ideas and plans in a way that they will be effectively carried out.


- Conceptual thinking consists of the ability to find connections or patterns between abstract ideas and then piece them together to form a complete picture.


- Innovative thinking involves generating new ideas or new ways of approaching things to create possibilities and opportunities. 


- Intuitive thinking is the ability to take what you may sense or perceive to be true and, without knowledge or evidence, appropriately factor it in to the final decision.
