Resource:: Critical Thinking

Our general thought process is pretty much amazing, But even we generally fall into many traps when it comes to thinking. Although we might have the speed and automated thinking dialled in perfectly, we still fall into the most basic problems.

These are heuristics and cognitive biases that help us make sense of the world around us. They can act without us even noticing and can influence our behavior to a varying degree, depending on the topic and how strongly we feel about it.

As a critical thinker, we must be aware of our own biases and personal prejudice. Setting them aside while critically thinking is extremely important.
