The Critical Thinking - Physical Fitness Connection

The Critical Thinking - Physical Fitness Connection | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it
Your brain is something that should be nourished and trained, just like your muscles.
James Schreier's insight:

This is a reason our "Thinking Clearly and Analytically" training program has been one of our most successful, and best reviewed, programs.  It's tough -- just like physical exercise can be -- but the practice, practice, practice is great for exercising thinking skills.

A Brief History of the Idea of Critical Thinking

A Brief History of the Idea of Critical Thinking | Thinking Clearly and Analytically | Scoop.it
The intellectual roots of critical thinking are as ancient as its etymology, traceable, ultimately, to the teaching practice and vision of Socrates 2,500 years ago who discovered by a method of probing questioning that people could not rationally justify their confident claims to knowledge. Confused meanings, inadequate evidence, or self-contradictory beliefs often lurked beneath smooth but largely empty rhetoric. Socrates established the fact that one cannot depend upon those in "authority" to have sound knowledge and insight. He demonstrated that persons may have power and high position and yet be deeply confused and irrational. He established the importance of asking deep questions that probe profoundly into thinking before we accept ideas as worthy of belief.

How to Develop 5 Critical Thinking Types

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

Sharrock's curator insight, March 22, 7:57 PM

This type of strategic leadership requires five different types of thinking. Knowing when and how much to utilize each one is the hallmark of great leaders.

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.
