How can critical thinking be applied to daily life? 

Critical thinking is important wherever the quality of human thinking significantly impacts the quality of life.

For example, success in human life is tied to success in learning. At the same time, every phase in the learning process is tied to critical thinking. Thus, reading, writing, speaking, and listening can all be done critically or uncritically.


Critical thinking is crucial to becoming a close reader and a substantive writer. Expressed most generally, critical thinking is “a way of taking up the problems of life.

The traits of a well cultivated critical thinker":

Raises vital questions and problems 
Formulates these clearly and precisely
Gathers and assesses relevant information 
Uses abstract ideas to interpret things effectively 
Comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions
Tests these against relevant criteria and standards
