1 Filters, Barriers, and Impediments Hindrances to critical thinking

2 Filters  Allow things that meet certain criteria to flow through while preventing others  Color or shape what comes through  Can be a useful sorting mechanism  Can be a feature of mindful and reflective thinking  But also screen out valuable input if they aren’t applied mindfully

3 Barriers  Keep out rather than let in  May indicate the presence of non-critical, manmade, or enculturated thinking patterns  Can be useful in some circumstances  Require some kind of monitoring  Can be removed, sometimes with heavy lifting  Unless monitored carefully, usually a hindrance to mindful, reflective thinking

4 Impediments  Often involve walls or total blockages  Often involve non-critical instead of critical standards of thinking, so they may inhibit mindful thinking  Often are reflexive and habitual, so they contradict or replace reflective thinking  Must be understood before they can be thought around

5 Nosich’s Impediments  Pictures formed from the news media  Pictures formed from entertainment and pop culture  All-or-nothing thinking/black and white  Us vs. them  Stereotyping  Fear

6 Nosich’s Impediments  Educational practices (see p. 21)  Egocentrism  Developmental Thinking  Previous Commitments  Personal Experiences  Denial

7 The Difference Between...  Impediment-free thinking Highly unusual Not likely to happen when subject is significant AND  Impediment-aware thinking Means you are working mindfully Lets you make allowances for your barriers and impediments
