How can we take the best of creative, critical and visual thinking? | Seavus DropMind® Blog | Organized Brain Dump | Scoop.it

Thinking is the basic activity of the human brain. Generally refers to any mental or intellectual activity involving an individual’s subjective consciousness. We know the meaning, we know the process. But how do we individually use it, do we make difference among separate types of thinking and do we know how to take advantage of them.

 

We often use creative, critical and visual thinking and brainstorming interchangeably. In order to develop our thinking techniques properly and use these different types of thinking most effectively, we need to make a difference among them and combine it appropriately.


So let’s look at what theory says:
Creative thinking is the merging of ideas which have not been merged before. Brainstorming is one form of creative thinking: it works by merging someone else’s ideas with your own to create a new one. You are using the ideas of others as a stimulus for your own.

 

Critical thinking is the process we use to reflect on assess and judge the assumption underlying our own and others ideas and efforts.
