update- I swear ya'll like a freaking lightbulb coming on i got it. WOOHoo. Okay i dont know why that happens sometimes. i wil sit there for days trying to figure out what to do and then BAM i understand it. Thank you so much ladies.


ok ive been working on this home for 2 days now and im not getting anywhere fast. Noone in my family seems to be able to help me and my instructor isnt explaing it to where i understand. 


 heres the text we have to read (just a snippit of it)


Quote:


Stage Three: The Beginning Thinker

Relevant intellectual traits. The key intellectual trait required at this stage is some degree of intellectual humility in beginning to recognize the problems inherent in thinking. In addition, thinkers must have some degree of intellectual confidence in reason, a trait which provides the impetus to take up the challenge and begin the process of active development as critical thinkers despite limited understanding of what it means to do high-quality reasoning. In addition, beginning thinkers have enough intellectual perseverance to struggle with serious problems in thinking yet lack a clear solution to those problems. In other words, at this stage thinkers are recognizing more and more problems in their thinking but have not yet discovered how to systematize their efforts to solve them.

Self-assessment (required to move forward). What am I doing on a day-to-day basis to begin to take command of my thinking? Am I beginning to recognize mistakes I am making in thinking? Am I committed to finding those mistakes? Am I beginning to recognize when I am being egocentric? Am I beginning to recognize egocentric thinking in others? Am I beginning to understand that the quality of my life depends on the quality of my thinking? Am I able to see that sporadic attempts at improvement are not enough, that I need to develop a systematic approach to improving my thinking?

Potential obstacles. Egocentric defensiveness, intellectual, arrogance, rationalization, and self-deception may lead the thinker to dismiss or avoid facing the challenge at this stage.



heres what the insturcto wants:

part in read is what im struggling with.


Quote:

Complete the matrix by identifying the six stages of critical thinking, describing how to move from each stage to the next, and listing obstacles you may face as you move to the next stage of critical thinking.





based of this can ANYONE explain or give me an example of what he is wanting? Im so damn confused.

yes i know what the 6 stages are. But im struggling with figure out how to list obstacles you may face going from one stage to the other. Every stage has this "Potential obstacles. Egocentric defensiveness, intellectual, arrogance, rationalization, and self-deception may lead the thinker to dismiss or avoid facing the challenge at this stage." list as potentional obstacles. Thats why im confused.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems your answer will be based more on your own personal opinion rather than a factual "right-wrong" answer. Your struggle with an answer, could be your answer.

there may not be a right or wrong answer everyone processes thinking differently.
