Critical thinking comprises of several elements, some of which are:
• Usage of facts to support views – Every individual has varied views and it is very important to backup those views for establishing credibility.
• Change of opinion on the basis of new facts collected – The author should acknowledge to all the varied views on a topic rather than sticking to personal view only and emphasizing on the same.
• Emotions to be separated from facts in the writing – Critical thinking is based on data and expressions and feelings should not be the guiding force in such write-ups.
• Decipher between facts and opinions – The author should separate facts from opinions so that readers are not confused between them.
• Ignorance of prejudice to look for facts – The author should look for new data and facts and should not base the article on a single viewpoint only.
