Critical Thinking and Ethics
The definition of critical thinking is the evaluation of an in order to form an idea of the issue at hand. The steps of the critical thinking process are knowledge, comprehension, application, analyze synthesis, and take action. Knowledge means understand the and knowing that you can ask question about the problems. It means being open-minded about this step of the critical thinking process. At this point two questions need to be addressed: What is the problem and why do we need to solve it?
The next step in the critical thinking process is comprehension. Which is having understanding of the situation that we are in and the facts that go along with it. It is collecting data and using any data that goes with it. It is understanding that there is a possible deadline that goes along with the research that is being collected and the data that we have.
The third step is application and this step is a continuation of the second step. It is a complete understanding of the step. It is a complete understanding of all the facts that was collected in the previous step. It is building on to make sure the steps are combined in a way to make a required linkage between the information and resources. That way they can determine the best way to continue to move forward.
The forth step in the process is analyze. Once all the information is collected they then have to sit down and analyze all of it. They have to analyze it to determine the best situation. That is their way of determining the weak points and the strong points to see what may need to be fix and what doesn’t need to be fixed.
The fifth step is synthesis. Once everything is fully analyzed they can then take and use that information to determine how to use that information to determine how to solve any problems that may need to be solved. The sixth and final step in the process is take action. By taking action is to evaluate what needs to be done and to actually do it. That is when you actually set up a plan of action and execute it.
My blind spot is my gift of want to help everyone and unless I stop that I will one day end up helping the wrong person and ending getting hurt in a really bad way. I am a very helpful person and a very open person and sometimes that can be a bad thing I suppose, but honestly, I have never met an enemy. I make friends very easily. I suppose I should be more careful of who I talk to and I how go about things before I end up hurt.
Ethics applies to a professional and societal responsibilities because being able to trust and be open with people is a good thing. Being able to trust people and being friendly with your coworkers makes for a very comfortable work environment. Knowing that you can be honest with your employer makes your work experience a good one.
