Good Thinking vs Poor Thinking

This quote and subsequent definitions are from the book Brave New Schools by Berit Kjos.

"Good thinkers are willing to think and may even find thinking enjoyable. They can carry out searches when necessary and suspend judgement. They value rationality, believing that thinking is useful for solving problems, reaching decisions, and making judgements. Poor thinkers, in contrast, need certainty, avoid thinking, must reach closure quickly, and rely too heavily on intuition."

The Good Thinker

- Welcomes problematic situations and is tolerant of ambiguity.
- Looks for alternative possibilities
- Is reflective, searches extensively where appropriate.
- Revise goals when necessary
- Is open to multiple possibilities
