Developing your critical thinking skills doesn’t have to be a daunting task. You can start small and build up over time. Here are 3 tips that will help you develop your critical thinking skills:
1. Pay attention to your own mind and daily habits. Some people think critically all the time, but others don’t even realize they’re making assumptions or incorrect conclusions about things. Start by paying attention to what you think, feel, and do each day, so you can identify patterns in how you respond to things.
2. Be patient in learning new things and seeking new perspectives. There’s no rush for everything—take it slow and make sure you understand before moving on to something else! This will help you recognize when there is more information available than what’s presented at first glance (or if there isn’t). If someone presents an idea that doesn’t seem right to you at first glance, try asking questions until they’ve answered everything they know about it—then see if anything still seems off!
3. Practice active listening and questioning. Active listening means paying close attention to what someone says so that when they’re done talking, you understand them completely—and asking questions.
