Using the California Critical Thinking Disposition Inventory (page 11 of the Critical Thinking textbook), explain how these concepts relate to Sociological Research (Chapter 1 reading). Also listed below:
The California Critical Thinking Disposition Inventory is a psychological test that is used to measure whether people are disposed to think critically. It measures seven different thinking habits listed below, and it is useful to ask ourselves to what extent they describe the way we think:
Truth-seeking - Do you try to understand how things really are? Are you interested in finding out the truth?
Open-mindedness - How receptive are you to new ideas, even though intuitively they do not agree with you? Do you give them a fair hearing?
Analyticity - Do you try to understand the reasons behind things? Do you act impulsively or do you evaluate the pros and cons of your decisions?
Systematicity - Are you systematic in your thinking? Do you break down a complex problem into parts?
Confidence in Reasoning - Do you always defer to other people? How confident are you in your own judgment? Do you have reasons for your confidence? Do you have a way to evaluate your own thinking?
Maturity of Judgment - Do you jump to conclusions? Do you try to see things from different perspectives? Do you take other people's experiences into account?
