This is part 2 of an interview with Stephen Haggerty (read part 1 here), a Critical Thinking Teacher of the Year award winner at Eastern Kentucky University.
Does one need to be highly intelligent to be a good critical thinker?
Highly intelligent…what does that mean? Does that term imply book intelligence? Street smarts? I would argue anyone could engage in higher-level thinking if they are trained in the terminology and how to apply it.
It takes a lot of practice to be a critical and creative thinker who communicates effectively, but I do believe if one is dedicated to being more successful in life, then they can learn to apply the principles of critical and creative thinking through effective communication.
