According to Halpern (1999) “Critical thinking refers to the use of cognitive skills or strategies that increase the probability of a desirable outcome. Critical thinking is purposeful, reasoned, and goal-directed. It is the kind of thinking involved in solving problems, formulating inferences, calculating likelihoods, and making decisions. When we think critically, we are evaluating the outcomes of our thought processes – how good a decision is or how well a problem is solved. (p. 69).

Our mindset (Growth vs. fixed) is connected to our ability to persist in academics, career, and other endeavors.
