Personal reflection paper
Critical thinking is reflective reasoning about beliefs and actions. It is a way of deciding whether a claim is always true, sometimes true, partly true, or false. The three most significant things I have learned in this class would be to never assume anything until you know if it is true or not, to never pass judgment on something unless if it is true, and I have learned to never go by what others have or might have said always use your brain to find the answers you are looking for. This class was a good class for me to take because I have never been a critical thinker I have always been a beginner thinker and this class has changed that a lot. I never use to think like I have in this class. Thanks to the instructor he made me think about what he has said to me and to the other classmates. He is a great critical thinker and wish I could be like that but maybe with what he has taught me I would begin to be like him in the thinking process. My thinking has changed due to the fact I think more like a thinker now and not like some college person that thinks they are good thinkers. I have built my way up to begin to be a good thinker. In week one I was a stage of beginner thinker and now I am a practicing thinker so I have moved up one stage with my thinking. I will be practicing more to become a master thinker in my thinking and I have this class to thank for that. I plan to move myself up towards a master thinker by taking all that I have learned from this class and put it into more perspective so that I can start to think like the instructor. I want to move up to master thinker and from this class on I plan to move up towards that and maybe become very good at it and help other people become master thinkers. Thinking is a powerful tool and I will learn fully how to use that tool. Thank you Instructor Newcomb.
