uncritical thinking

Book Summary   by:tart     Original Author: Consuelo G. Sevilla
ª
 
The opposite of creative or critical thinking is prejudiced or uncritical thinking. Here, the individual''s limited thinking makes him feel sure that his opinion is the best, that his family is the most outstanding in the community; or conversely, that his school is the worst school in the region or that his parents are more inconsiderate, compared to all of his friend''s parents. Such forms of uncritical thinking are inimical to creative thinkers. They are definitely threats to the society. Three forms of uncritical thinking are "All or nothing" thinking, confusing coincidence with cause, and delusions. "All or nothing" thinking is a childish form of thinking were things are absolutely thought of as either good or bad, right or wrong. Confusing coincidence with cause is also known as "jumping into conclusions". Delusion is a false belief that persists despite evidence to the contrary.
