How to build creative thinking ?
We are learning and memorizing things from our childhood since we were in school. But the conflict is that at school age we were unaware to critical thinking. But writer insist that if we learn critical thinking and our early age then it helps us to proceed for the in our life successfully because it gives us confidence with which we can adopt and make valuable judgement on things which we are going to do in our life like if you are going to University and you are getting confused to select a major subject then by critical thinking analysis it helps us to choose the right option. When student came at the stage to choose an major subject they remain in confusion and they do not that in which subject they have to choose. A survey shows that students focus more toward the scope of the degree but they do not know that scope is not related to the degree which are they doing in actual world scope related to them. The more skillful person's have scope but on the other hand if you have done with your course but at the end of the degree you are even unaware of your degree course work then you will unable to do any profession.
