Critical thinking is about sorting information in order of relevance to the topic at hand while still remaining rational and clear. It helps uncover underlying truths as it allows us to think below just the surface. Critical thinking affects the way we see and hear things as it often increases or decreases the value we hold for them, allowing us to make important decisions. It also guides and focuses our imagination into areas that we think are significant, allowing us to imagine options that may have been dismissed without the added focus critical thinking provides. It also allows us essentially to ignore all counterproductive things and focus on those which hold priority. Critical thinking is a form of thinking that enhances our decision-making.
