Critical Thinking Application One of the lessons from various stages in academic life is that thinking is hard work, and the more complicated the mental challenge, the more energy one exerts to achieve a desired goal. In recent years, scientists, psychologists and scholars have closely observed the rudiments of thinking through various approaches and methods.
