Can you contradict your own beliefs and opinions ?
When it comes to take a decision, do you even consider the rationality of it ? Do you arrive at the conclusion based on facts ? And reasons ? Are you capable of seeing pros and cons of your decision ? Or opinions or conclusions? If yes, you are a thinker !
Unbiased analysis of facts to form a judgement or decision is critical thinking. It solves complex problems after employing logic and reasoning. Critical Thinking also encourages self-reflection.
We have evolved as human through logical reasoning and better decision makers.. Many development has occurred due to this . If we always agree with the opinions of the group, new development or perspective or better decisions may not happen..
