Critical Thinking: A Necessary Skill in the Age of Spin

Critical Thinking: A Necessary Skill in the Age of Spin | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
G. Randy Kasten is an attorney and author of Just Trust Me: Finding the Truth in a World of Spin.

 

   The ability to think critically is one skill separating innovators from followers. Critical thinking reduces the power of advertisers, the unscrupulous and the pretentious, and can neutralize the sway of an unsupported argument. This is a skill most students enjoy learning because they see immediately that it gives them more control.

Targeted advertising affects their buying and eating habits; choosing friends for the wrong reasons can lead to real heartache.
