"All the problems of the world could be settled easily if men were only willing to think. The trouble is that men very often resort to all sorts of devices in order not to think, because thinking is such hard work." (Thomas Watson, IBM)

Here is a wonderful interactive image created on Thinglink by J Beam featuring some important tools that support the 21st century thinking. As you can see from the graphic below, there are four main skills associated with the 21st century thinking these are : creating, collaborating, communicating, and critical thinking.
Critical thinking is crucial for making better decisions and effective communication. You can consistently think more critically about a topic or opinion, and explore new perspectives, by using Socratic questions.
The phenomenon of “decision fatigue” has been found in judges, who are more likely to deny parole at the end of the day than at the beginning. Now researchers have found a parallel effect in physicians.
The ability to think critically, as conceived in this volume, involves three things: 1. an attitude of being disposed to consider in a thoughtful way the problems and subjects that come within the range of one's experiences, 2. knowledge of the methods of logical inquiry and reasoning, and 3. some skill in applying those methods.” Critical Thinking is most often required when we have a ‘problem’ to solve and a knowledge gap preventing us from reaching a sound conclusion or making good judgments. Because there are as many, or more, interpretations of the word ‘problem’ as there are for diversity, big data, or critical thinking, it is not always clear what questions to ask to close the gap. Fortunately, because the word ‘problem’ is often used when we need to manage change, we can use the three fundamental types of change to define three distinct types of ‘problems’ and the key questions we need to answer to close the knowledge gaps: a. Past change that has occurred - What did change to affect performance achieving expectations? b. Present change we are considering - What should change to enhance performance achieving expectations? c. Future change that might occur - What could change to affect performance achieving expectations?
The Marquis de Sade is one of the most infamous, deviant and evil French writers of all times. The words sadism or sadist are derived from his notorious name. I studied some of Sade's work in high school.
