Critical Thinking

Atheist : How do you apply critical thinking and skepticism with out it leading you into cynicism?

Couldn’t constant or over use of critical thinking cause someone to be cynical to the point where it causes them to question everything and everyone and their motives ? Leading to trust issues, and maybe even behavioral problems such as paranoia ? Thanks in advance for your answers . God bless.

interesting question. i think "constant or over use of critical thinking" as you intend to describe is an example of neurotic behavior and thus is not representative of any group of people based upon their views of religion/spirituality. it sounds like an obsessive disorder, not a determined state of thinking. as an athiest, i do not lump all people into one ball. we are all unique, some good, some bad, etc. btw there are many people i trust.

Structure of syllogism and how they relate to critical thinking?

In your own words, briefly describe the structure and use of syllogisms as they relate to critical thinking.

Please provide one example each of a 1) categorical, 2) a hypothetical, and 3) a disjunctive syllogism to illustrate your explanations.

You can do this. Search for some background information on the internet. It will take some work, but you need to do it yourself.

Good Luck!
PS:
After you give it a shot, I will help you if you still need assistance. Ask another question, if needed…

What is the connection between egocentrism and critical thinking?

I would like to understand how egocentrism interferes with critical thinking. why is it useful to know about egocentrism when critical thinking? Thank You

Egocentrism: it’s all about you
Critical Thinking: requires taking in different views than your own.

One cannot see through the lens if he’s too busy admiring its reflection.

New Reality for Bay Area Sellers

Over the past six months, sellers of real estate in Oakland and surrounding areas have begun to realize that the market is definitely not what it was a couple of years ago. In all reality, the power now lies with serious buyers who know they have more room to negotiate when making offers. Sellers who are not willing to look at hard numbers of recent sales, or who are not realistic about the condition their home is in will end up having their home stay on the market for months at a time and eventually expiring. By the time they realize they should reduce the price, it’s could be too late as the listing may have “gone stale”.

The two most important factors that sellers need to be thinking about is presentation and price. The best strategy for sellers is to prepare the property for sale as best they can by increacing curb appeal, performing cosmetic upgrades if necessary and possibly staging the interior. Next, the seller must work with a competent Realtor who is familiar with the Oakland/Bay Area market. The goal is to establish a price that WILL draw attention to the home and make it stand out as a value compared to the others on the market. With inventory of homes being high, buyers have more homes to choose from which means more competition for the seller. In some cases, I take my sellers out to see other homes that are on the market that compare with theirs. This way, they get a first hand look at how the other homes on the market stack up to theirs.

As the market corrects itself and inventory goes down, sellers will have it easier. Simple supply and demand will bring competition back up as more and more buyers try to bid on the same houses. Contra Costa county is currently seeing inventories soaring through the roof, with many homes sitting on the market for four months and over. In such markets, the pricing strategy I mentioned above becomes even more critical. Since interest rates remain low, buyers still have great opportunities out there.

Critical thinking is what you need to do to solve this problem.
For example, you can gather information about your customers or mold the question into something more specific.
