21st Century Soft Skills: critical thinking

The 3rd important soft skill of this century is the critical thinking.

Critical thinking is a way of thinking that consists of being wary of one’s intuition, frames of reference and interactions with the outside world in order to make the right decision.
Developing a critical mind is a major challenge for society, particularly in the face of infobesity – the multiplication of information.

Building critical thinking implies an intellectual posture requiring curiosity, the ability to question, argue and debate, and distancing oneself from preconceived ideas.
