  1. The title of this video is false. It is not "How to develop critical thinking" but "how to act and succeed in things with critical thinking!" It's just how to use or the application of critical thinking.

  2. Gooosh I'm a 15 yo girl who likes feels and tragedy and cheesy stuff.
    I hate how I can't make critical decisions!
    I read one thing on a topic, then another – and both seem right! Before I understand, I've mindlessly given a like to both of them. Like… I try to keep myself as open for change as possible, but this has bad sides too – I consider myself intelligent, but an average cunning person could manipulate me very easily.

  3. I feel like its useful to be able to view the situation with an unbiased look, to be able to kind of distance yourself from your emotions and make a rational decision

  4. NEVER believe a politician, they'll promise anything and then once in, do nothing and get paid for it. How do you tell when a politician is lying, their mouth is moving. Politicians have less power than ppl think today, often they're the public arm of large corporations that pay them $$$$ to serve corp interests, not public. Many lobbyists have a 1000 times more power than politicians. Most of the powerful ppl are ones you'll never hear of but they already control the public.
