Over the past three months, I have learned many different aspects of psychology that I will probably remember for the rest of my life. But of the lessons that I will remember the most is the six principals of critical thinking. These principals have presented themselves again and again in quizzes and exams always making you think back to that first lecture in psych 1001 trying to get all of the definitions down. Remember these six principals will help me later in life as I try to apply them in other classes or in real life situations. I can now look at certain situations and try and answer them using the six principals. Another reason that this the biggest thing I will take out of this class is that they are the building blocks of psychology. Every one of the lessons we learned circled back to these six principals. So the next time I'm doing an experiment or hear a statistic on tv, I'll run through all the principals in my head to make sure that it's true.
