Neuroscience and Critical Thinking

If knowledge gives you power, knowing your brain gives you wisdom, stability, peace, and clarity.


Improve your critical, effective, and rational thinking skills by understanding the neuroscience of your brain.

Being irrational sometimes and having snap-judgments is natural. But you can improve both with awareness if you know what cognitive patterns to look for. This book is for you if you want to learn about them. The patterns are explained in the neuroscience part and the tool for change is critical analysis or thinking.
Critical thinking skills empower your decision-making muscle, speed up your deductive thinking skills and improve your judgment.


In Neuroscience and Critical Thinking you’ll find widely usable and situation-specific advice on how to think about your daily life, business, friendships, opinions, and even social media in a critical fashion.

Spot errors in reasoning easily.


Think slowly and deliberately before making a snap judgment or decision
•Question assumptions and opinions (including your own) 
•Study the subject or object of decision making to gather information before jumping to conclusions
•Accept and expect that human nature is ultimately biased and prone to make cognitive errors


Learn about the most important critical thinking principles as well as shortcuts to make better decisions in specific situations. 
•Learn the main principles of critical thinking.

Don’t just attack symptoms, solve your problems once and for all. 
•Find the most rewarding options in any opportunity.

Detect the thinking errors of larger groups or individuals. 



Ask powerful questions to effectively self-assess. 
Level up your critical thinking skills and save time, filter out irrelevant information efficiently, and prioritize your resources to get the best results. Identify better problem-solving approaches rather than relying on standard methods that don’t suit your case. Enhance your communication skills, reasoning, and logic. Become more compassionate and understanding of the perspectives and shortcomings of others and your own.


Get to know your brain to have better solution to problems, solve difficult tasks easier, and understand the world better.

    Arguments from authority are the "because I said so" argument; the argument that just because someone is in charge, their argument is correct. This type of fallacy can also apply to people who seem believable just because they have traits perceived as positive; for example, "Shelly volunteers at a shelter and is a good person, therefore what she believes about organic food is right." The darkest side of this fallacy is often found in cults, where people fall prey to the tendency to believe people in authority who are charismatic. People evolved to want to exist in cohesive social groups where they can follow a leader. This respect helps keep society together, but it cannot override rational thinking
