Putting it all in a nutshell, can you identify a lie when you see it?
That is thinking critically.
Critical thinking isn’t dry and boring. Most of it is fun and exciting. It may get exasperating when you try to point out where something isn’t right and only you are seeing it, but it’s very satisfying not having the wool pulled over your eyes.
Studying all of these will help. But there can be aspects of play to the mental exercise. There are many entertaining puzzles and games that can help sharpen the mind.
All of these will improve your problem solving abilities which are very valuable in your work and personal life.
This website explores all these areas. There is also a blog to share examples from daily life of the many types of wool in the world and how predominant it is. Take some of the twist out of that wool and straighten it out.
Unfortunately, lies outweigh the truth by a good margin, especially in the media and with public figures. Truth is only a small ember waiting to burst out in flame if ever the right tinder comes close.
Where are you on the path towards truth?
Ignorance ⇒ Belief ⇒ Knowing ⇒ Understanding
Protect yourself from the misinformation that our world is awash in. Become a living lie detector.
Become a critical thinker.
