Thinking Skills

These skills are useful to us to analyse information, remember and retrieve data and take decisions.
This is the reason why written test for any interview has reasoning, aptitude questions even through there is no direct relationship with the work they do. Employer believes that who score good marks will be able to solve problems, deal projects and figure out the good results.

Thinking skills mainly categorized into

Problem solving:
In our day to day life we need to solve so many problems irrespective of gender, age, position and size and impact of the decision. Some (many) times we may face failures but the experience is invaluable.
If we come to kids, they learn problem solving from everyday situations if we put them in a correct direction they will make it into a habit and also teach leadership, teamwork, creativity, persistence and more
Having critical thinking skills allows one to ascertain the problem and come up with creative solutions
Once we get confidence on our capabilities like how you visualize the problems and analyse the situation that leads children develop their skills.

Critical Thinking:
Everyone thinks; but the way we think effects our decisions and the results.
Critical thinking involves thinking clearly, understanding the logic between the ideas.
It involves questions like what, who, where, when, why and how. It consists of seeing both sides of an issue.
Why are we able to think critically in one situation, but not in another?
Anything you hear or read is automatically interpreted in light of what you already know about similar subjects. The cognitive system gambles that incoming information will be related to what you’ve just been thinking about. Thus, it significantly narrows the scope of possible interpretations of words, sentences, and ideas. So Our Thought processes are intertwined with what is being thought about.
So accessing information alone is not enough but acquiring knowledge, retaining experiences make differences in our thinking.


Oral skills:
Many think just learning other language is enough to improve communication skills but not actually….Reading, writing and listening are 3 main facets of communication skills.
Words can do little with communication because we communicate 75% through our body language.
Expressing our feelings, thoughts play crucial role to get our point to get others understand our point.
So here the point is not just communicating words but communicating our views effectively.
Listening skills play a big role to improve our Interpersonal Skills which we use in the face-to-face communication.

Writing Skills:
In this globalised era it’s not always possible to communicate our point directly to others, so written communication is also very important.
Here the ability to write effectively is the key because we don’t have a chance to use our body language.

It’s an ability see things in new ways and come up with brighter solutions.
Children are not equally intelligent in the same they are all not equally creative. But we can help children develop their creativity. It’s a core skill to excel in any part of learning like science, math, social, Art; music etc. creative people are good at solving problems, being flexible and more adaptable, essential qualities to excel in anything in the world.
We don’t need to expensive structured toys to develop children creativity, actually shouldn’t use. Here the key is to make them as problem solvers so provide them unstructured, messy, no rules environment with no time limit. Always ask them to come up with more than one solution to a problem.
Always try to encourage them to focus on the process not on the outcome.

Attention skills
It is a skill that one can focus on a task and filtering distractions.
Children might focus on tasks that are interesting to them, but have difficulty concentrating on activities that are not interesting. So make them interested on the important tasks is the key.
