She went on at the beginning of this conversation, which was organised by the Peivande Gole Narges Charity in a virtual context, that Critical thinking is one of the most important and key life skills provided by the World Health Organisation. According to her, critical thinking means expressing one's thoughts and beliefs in a calm manner and away from any tension and struggle; In other words, critical thinking is about thinking.
Ms. Homayouni considered the most important step for learning critical thinking to be adaptability and flexibility without prejudice and added: To achieve critical thinking, search inside and out of everything. She continued: Critical thinking sometimes strengthens personal virtues, for example, by facing limitations, we achieve humility and intellectual humility in the direction of learning. Critical thinking gives an individual the courage to confront misconceptions and it will be a factor for intellectual independence, better evaluation, increasing self-confidence and defending attitudes. According to Ms. Homayouni, cultivate critical thinking by reading valuable books and discussing them. In the end, she emphasised teaching this valuable skill to children from a young age and in the family centre, and even better if taught in schools. As this will lead to innovation and the creation of new ideas and as a result provide useful solutions.
