Using Your Critical Thinking Skills with Keith Long

Critically thinking about something means “the thinker improves the quality of his or her thinking by skillfully analyzing, assessing and reconstructing” information.  As Keith points out in our discussion today, it means “putting on your listening ears” rather than hearing words and trying to figure out your response.

There are several steps to learning “how” to think critically:

  1. Identifying the problem
  2. Doing research about the issue
  3. Determining the relevance
  4. Asking questions
  5. Identifying the best solution
  6. Stepping back and examining your decision

Keith Long teaches “Critical Thinking Skills” on LinkedIn and he is releasing his new book Zanny the Nanny soon which is the story surrounding the trial of Casey Anthony.  Keith is also a Harvard Nieman Foundation Scholar and Florida Bar Certified Instructor for attorneys.

Keith can be reached via his website
