What is Critical Thinking?

Critical thinking is reasoned and reflective judgment applied to solving problems or making decisions about what to believe or what to do.  Critical thinking gives reasoned consideration to defining and analyzing problems, identifying and evaluating  options, inferring likely outcomes and probable consequences, and explaining the reasons, evidence, methods and standards used in making those analyses, inferences and evaluations. Critical thinking is skeptical without being cynical, evaluative without being judgmental, and purposefully focused on following reasons and evidence wherever they may lead.
