CRITICAL THINKING WORKOUT: ‘THE SHIP OF THESEUS’ AND OTHER RIDDLES So how good at you at thinking critically? Hallmarks of the Socratic temperament are an ability to judge the cogency of an argument and to identify conclusions, reasons and assumptions in yourself and others. Trinity College Dublin lecturer Gerry Dunne, a student of the field, adds to this list the quality of being a “reflective sceptic” – open-minded and well-informed – and the capacity to change your view when more evidence comes to light. One way of testing your critical-thinking skills is to see how you approach aporia, philosophical puzzles that inevitably produce an element of doubt.

How do you define critical thinking?

No one always acts purely objectively and rationally. We connive for selfish interests. We gossip, boast, exaggerate, and equivocate.

We may not always want to apply critical thinking skills, but we should have those skills available to be employed when needed. Critical thinking includes a complex combination of skills.
