Weak critical thinking skills show themselves in many ways:

  • dangerous and costly errors,
  • repeated mistakes,
  • bad decisions,
  • failed systems,
  • inaction when action is needed, the giving of bad advice,
  • inaccurate assumptions, the poor design of training programs,
  • the poor evaluation of educational curricula,
  • the lack of anticipated action…

The list of examples of poor critical thinking is long.

Weakness in critical thinking skill results in loss of opportunities, of financial resources, of relationships, and even loss of life. There is probably no other attribute more worthy of measure than critical thinking skills.

Risks of poor thinking

Too often the consequences of poor thinking are discovered too late—after bad decisions are made.

“What was I thinking?”

“How could I have decided to do that?”

“Why didn’t we do more about that problem while we still could?”

We can no longer afford to accept poor critical thinking. The costs are too high. Error rates must be reduced.  Difficult problems and decisions must be addressed reflectively. We cannot accept poor judgments that can lead to irreparable damage and even cost lives.
