5 ways to become a critical thinker total recall, habits, inquiry, new ideas and creativity, knowing how you think
total recall remembering facts or where to find them
habits thinking approaches that are repeated so often they become second nature, allows one to do things without figuring out a method each time, accepted way of doing things
inquiry examining issues in depth, questioning the obvious
