Das menschliche Erkenntnisvermögen wurde seinen tierischen Instinkten aufgepropft.
Die Fähigkeit zu erkennen, zuzuordnen, zu schlussfolgern, zu mentieren, ersetzte nicht den mentalen Verarbeitungsprozess des Tieres. (1. und 2.)
Durch die Ausformung des tagesbewussten Neokortex (3.) wurde sie dem Reptiliengehirn und dem Limbischen System hinzugefügt.
Tierisches Bewusstsein ist auf das eigene Überleben (und das der eigenen Familie und Horde) ausgerichtet. Es mentiert in der Kategorie von "Wir gegen Euch". Es kümmert sich nicht um größere Zusammenhänge (Kontext). Es bezieht die Bedürfnisse "fremder" Mitmenschen nicht mit ein.
Eigenständiges Denken beginnt erst ab dem 4. Gehirn, dem Stirnhirn.

Acht Phasen der psychosozialen Entwicklung – Erik H. Erikson

Achtstufiges Stufenmodell der psychosozialen Entwicklung
Der deutsch-amerikanische Psychoanalytiker Erik Erikson entwarf das achtstufige Modell der psychosozialen Entwicklung (von der Geburt bis zum Tod), als eine Erweiterung des Freudschen Modells psychosexueller Entwicklung.
Erikson verfasste psychoanalytische Biografien über die Gesellschaftsreformer Martin Luther und Mahatma Gandhi.

Zitate zum Thema Denken / Thinking

Zitate allgemein

Empfehlungen

  • Lesen, selber denken, das macht uns zum Individuum, und Individuen sind gefährlicher als die mitschleifende Masse. Interview mit Elke Heidenreich (*1943) deutsche Kabarettistin, Moderatorin, Literaturkritikerin, Opern-Librettistin, Journalistin, Schriftstellerin, Wo fangen Wir an?, präsentiert von der zweiwöchentlich erscheinenden deutschen Frauenzeitschrift Brigitte, S. 178, 1. Ausgabe 2005

 

Einsichten

  • Hinter jeder Antwort, die wir mit den Mitteln des unterscheidenden, begrifflichen Denkens gefunden haben, erhebt sich eine neue Frage, und je mehr wir auf das Ziel zugehen, umso mehr entfernen wir uns von ihm. Zensho W. Kopp, deutscher spiritueller Meister, Dharma-Nachfolger von Zenmeister Soji Enku, Zen und die Wiedergeburt der christlichen Mystik, S. 109f., Schirner Verlag, Darmstadt, 2004

 

  • Unser Kopf ist rund, damit das Denken die Richtung wechseln kann. Francis Picabia (1879-1953) französischer surrealistischer Maler, Grafiker, Dichter, Schriftsteller, zitiert in: Pierre Gallissaires, Hanna Mittelstädt, Band 31, Edition Nautilus, Kleine Bücherei für Hand & Kopf, Hamburg, 1995
  • Genaugenommen gibt es keinen Unterschied zwischen dem Bewusstsein und dem Verstand. Das Bewusstsein in Aktion ist der Verstand, somit ist der Verstand der Inhalt des Bewusstseins.
Bewusstsein kann ohne den Verstand existieren (wie z.B. im Tiefschlaf oder in Narkose), doch der Verstand kann ohne das Bewusstsein nicht existieren. Der Verstand, nach innen gerichtet (ohne Gedanken), ist das Bewusstsein; der Verstand, nach außen gerichtet, ist das Ego oder der "Ich"-Gedanke, dessen Quelle das unpersönliche oder universelle Bewusstsein ist.
Der nach außen gerichtete Verstand und das Ego sind ein und dasselbe. Erinnerung und Intellekt sind Aspekte dieses Verstandes, der nur im Wachzustand vorhanden ist (und auch im Traum), doch nicht in tiefem Schlaf.
Vom persönlichen Standpunkt aus gesehen, ist der Verstand oder das Ego die Verbindung zwischen dem Bewusstsein und dem physischen Körper, welcher träge und empfindungslos ist.
Der operierende Verstand hat zwei Aspekte:
  • den "denkenden Verstand", der aus der Erinnerung heraus operiert und Vorstellungen und Konzepte schafft. Diese beruhen auf vergangenen Erfahrungen und projizieren diese Vorstellungen als Hoffnungen, Ängste und Ambitionen in die selbsterdachte Zukunft;
  • den "arbeitenden Verstand", der sich auf die Geschehnisse im augenblicklichen Moment konzentriert.
Der denkende Verstand – eine unnütze Vergeudung von Energie – mit seinem Gefühl von einem persönlich Handelnden wird zerstört, wenn etwas geschieht, das man als Erleuchtung bezeichnet, und wenn das persönliche, identifizierte Bewusstsein zu seiner Quelle, dem unpersönlichen, universellen Bewusstsein, zurückfindet. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (1897-1981) indischer Weiser, erleuchteter Heiliger der hinduistischen Advaita Vedanta-Tradition, Ich bin. Gespräche mit Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj Teil 1, J. Kamphausen Verlag, 4. Auflage 1998, Vorwort von Ramesh S. Balsekar, J.Kamphausen Verlag, 5. Auflage 2002, 6. Auflage 2004

 

  • Das Denken ist ein Vorgang in Zeit und Raum. Das Denken ist Gedächtnis, die Erinnerung an Vergangenes. Das Denken ist die Aktivität des Wissens […] Wissen ist niemals vollständig. Es geht immer Hand in Hand mit Unwissenheit. […] Zeit, Wissen, Gedächtnis, Denken sind eine einzige Einheit. Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) indischer spiritueller Lehrer, Theosoph, ausgerufen von der Theosophischen Gesellschaft als Maytreya, Philosoph, Autor

Subjekt-Objekt-Spaltung nach Karl Jaspers

  • Allen […] Anschauungen ist eines gemeinsam: sie erfassen das Sein als etwas, das mir als Gegenstand gegenübersteht, auf das ich als auf ein mir gegenüberstehendes Objekt, es meinend, gerichtet bin. Dieses Urphänomen unseres bewussten Daseins ist uns so selbstverständlich, dass wir sein Rätsel kaum spüren, weil wir es gar nicht befragen. Das, was wir denken, von dem wir sprechen, ist stets ein anderes als wir, ist das, worauf wir, die Subjekte, als auf ein gegenüberstehendes, die Objekte, gerichtet sind. Wenn wir uns selbst zum Gegenstand unseres Denkens machen, werden wir selbst gleichsam zum anderen und sind immer zugleich als ein denkendes Ich wieder da, das dieses Denken seiner selbst vollzieht, aber doch selbst nicht angemessen als Objekt gedacht werden kann, weil es immer wieder die Voraussetzung jedes Objektgewordenseins ist. Wir nennen diesen Grundbefund unseres denkenden Daseins die Subjekt-Objekt-Spaltung. Ständig sind wir in ihr, wenn wir wachen und bewusst sind. Karl Jaspers (1883-1969) deutsch-schweizerischer Psychiater, interkultureller Philosoph, Vertreter der Existenzphilosophie, Autor, Einführung in die Philosophie, S. 24-25, München, 1953

 

  • Diejenigen, welche von der Philosophie nichts verstehen, schlagen zwar die Hände über den Kopf zusammen, wenn sie den Satz vernehmen: Das Denken ist das Sein. Dennoch liegt allem unserem Tun die Voraussetzung der Einheit des Denkens und des Seins zugrunde. Diese Voraussetzung machen wir als vernünftige, als denkende Wesen. Es ist jedoch wohl zu unterscheiden, ob wir nur denkende sind oder ob wir uns als denkende auch wissen. Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831) deutscher Philosoph, Schriftsteller, Friedhelm Nicolin, Otto Pöggeler, Enzyklopädie der philosophischen Wissenschaften im Grundrisse, 1830

 

  • Manche Menschen würden eher sterben als nachzudenken. Und sie tun es auch. Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) englischer Wissenschaftsphilosoph, Logiker, Mathematiker, Historiker, Sozialreformer, "Pazifist", Mitglied der Royal Society und des Geheimdienstes MI5, Nobelpreisträger für Literatur, 1950, Aphorismus

 

 

  • Dem Gebrauch des Feuers folgte das bewusste Herstellen von Werkzeugen, um aus Rohstoffen, die unbearbeitet selten taugen, Kleider, Haus, gekochte Speisen und immer neues Plus gegen die nackte Not zu bilden. Überlegende Arbeit trieb erst den Menschenstamm geschichtlich hoch, ließ ihn das Nötigste sich probend zurechtlegen; Not lehrte zuerst das Denken. Ernst Bloch (1885-1977) deutscher neomarxistischer Philosoph, Schriftsteller, Tübinger Einleitung in die Philosophie, S. 15, Suhrkamp Verlag, Frankfurt am Main, 1977

 

  • Selbstdenken ist der höchste Mut.
    Wer wagt selbst zu denken,
    der wird auch selbst handeln.
    Bettina von Arnim (1785-1859) deutsche Schriftstellerin der deutschen Romantik, Aphorismus

General quotes

Personal avowals

  • I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think. Socrates (469-399 BC) Ancient Greek pre-Christian philosopher

 

  • I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. Albert Einstein (1879-1955) German-born US American theoretical physicist, developer of the theory of general relativity, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, What Life Means to Einstein, The Saturday Evening Post, George Sylvester Viereck, 26. October 1929

Szent-Györgyi's description of his creative process is remarkably like that given by French mathematician Jacques Hadamard (1865-1963) in his classic The Psychology of Invention in the Mathematical Field.

  • Scientific creation is in many ways germane to artistic creation [...]. In order to solve a problem, I have to think very hard about a problem but this thinking never leads me anywhere; it is but a necessary priming process. Finding myself unable to solve my problem, I 'drop it', that is, let it sink into my subconscious. How long it stays there varies. Then, unexpectedly, the solution is passed into my conscious mind. My brain must have done as the Hungarian laxative which was advertised: "While you sleep it does the work." Albert Szent-Györgyi (1893-1986) Hungarian physiologist, Nobel Peace Prize laureate in physiology or medicine, 1937, article On Scientific and Artistic Creativity, presented by peer-reviewed academic journal Leonardo published by the MIT Press, Volume 6, Number 1, S. 57-58, Winter 1973

 


Girl with a Book
José Ferraz de Almeida Júnior (1850-1899) Brazilian artist
  • I think we become what we are rewarded for.
    I think we are rewarded not to think, but to repeat.
    Not to discover but to memorize. Not to innovate but to imitate.
    To allow others to think for us. Today we become what others think.
    The time is ripe for a revolution of the self-governed, purposeful mind.
    A revolution as gentle and inexorable as the rising tide.
    The weapons of the purposeful are courage, tolerance [to be replaced by empathy, status May 2016], determination, perseverance, honor, self-control.
    As our tolerance and courage grows, we will discover that all who govern their own minds have the goal of harmony. Annette Jahnel (*1962) South African photographer, artist, world traveller touring with project "Searching for Galileo", public speaker, author, declarative writing, beginning 2016

 

Recommendations

  • You can't solve a problem with the same thinking that created it. Albert Einstein (1879-1955) German-born US American theoretical physicist, developer of the theory of general relativity, Nobel Prize laureate in physics, 1921, aphorism

 

Appeals

  • We must learn to explore all of the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world.
    We must learn to welcome rather than fear the voices of dissent.
    We must dare to think 'unthinkable things' because when thinking becomes 'unthinkable,’ thinking stops and actions become mindless.
    If we are to disabuse ourselves of old myths, and to act wisely and creatively upon the new realities of our time, we must think and talk about our problems with perfect freedom, remembering, as Woodrow Wilson said, that 'The greatest freedom of speech is the greatest safety because, if a man is a fool, the best thing to do is to encourage him to advertise the fact by speaking.' James William Fulbright (1905-1995) US American D AR Senator (1945-1975), cited in: Speech given by Harriet Mayor Fulbright, Senator J. William Fulbright: His Legacy and its Relevance Today, University of Oslo, 15. February 2005

Dealing with lies and "Fake News"

Not hierarchy but mutuality – More speech, not censorship is the solution to lies.

  • The problem of "Fake News" isn't solved by hoping for a referee, but rather because we as participants, we as citizens, we as users of these services help each other. We talk and we share and we point out what is fake, we point out what is truth. The answer to bad speech is not censorship, the answer to bad speech is more speech. We have to exercise and spread the idea that critical thinking matters – now more than ever given the fact that lies seem to become very popular. Q&A video interview with Edward Snowden (*1983) US American whistleblower, computer professional, former system administrator for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and a counterintelligence trainer at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), leaker of classified information from the National Security Agency (NSA) to the mainstream media, starting in June 2013, Edward Snowden Q&A hosted by CEO Twitter Jack Dorsey – NSA Spying, sponsor and host Jack Dorsey, US American Twitter CEO, recorded at Twitter headquarters, San Francisco, California, 13.

Conclusion

  • Thinking is a momentary dismissal of irrelevancies. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) US American engineer, systems theorist, architect, constructor, designer, inventor, futurist, philosopher, author, Utopia or Oblivion. The Prospects of Humanity, 1969

 

Insights

  • To think and to be fully alive are the same, and this implies that thinking must always begin afresh. Hannah Arendt (1906-1975) German-Jewish political theorist, philosopher, specialized in analyzing the rise of totalitarianism, author, cited in: Julia Kristeva (*1941) Bulgarian-French professor of philosophy, University Paris Diderot, literary critic, psychoanalyst, sociologist, cultural theorist, critical analyst, feminist, novelist, Hanna Arendt, Volume 1, S. 94, Columbia University Press, New York, 2001

 

  • All the Buddha's teachings just had this single object – to carry us beyond the stage of thought. Now, if I accomplish cessation of my thinking.
    What use to me the Dharmas Buddha taught? Huang Po [Huangbo Xiyun] (770-850 AD) Chinese Chan master of Zen Buddhism, The Zen Teaching of Huang-Po: On the Transmission of Mind, translated by John Eaton Calthorpe Blofeld, preface by P'ei Hsiu, Chinese scholar, pg. 69 Grove Press, 18. January 1994

Abstract thinking

  • Abstract thinking can lead us no further than to intellectual sophistries, which are invariably used as shields and subterfuges and are calculated to prevent the realization of the whole. Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) Swiss psychiatrist, psychoanalytist, founder of a new school of depth psychology, author, Gerhard Adler, editor, Aniela Jaffe, editor, Letters of C. G. Jung. Volume II, 1951-1961, Princeton University Press, 1. April 1976, Routledge, pages 617-620, reissued edition 20. May 1976

  • No one can cause emotions in you. Another person can trigger emotions in you. However, it is your way of thinking about what they should or must do or what one usually does, what is correct or right, which causes emotions of anger, pain or annoyance. Marshall Rosenberg (*1934) US American psychologist, psychotherapist, developer of Nonviolent Communication

 

  • Two percent of the people think;
    three percent of the people think they think;
    and ninety-five percent of the people would rather die than think.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish politician, pacifist, satirist, dramatist, Nobel laureate in literature, 1925

 

  • Reason is a harmonising, controlling force rather than a creative one. Even in the most purely logical realms, it is insight that first arrives at what is new. Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) British philosopher, social critic, logician, mathematician, historian, social reformist, "pacifist", member of the Royal Society, Nobel laureate in literature, 1950

 

  • Narrative imagining – story, is the fundamental instrument of thought. Mark Turner (*1954) US American professor of cognitive science, Case Western Reserve University, linguist, author, The Literary Mind, Oxford University Press, NYC, United States, 1st edition 19. September 1996

 

  • The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts but to discover new ways of thinking about them. Sir William Henry Bragg (1862-1942) British physicist, chemist, mathematician, sportsman, Nobel Peace Prize laureate in physics, 1915

 

 

  • There are two different kinds of doubt. There's self-doubt and idea doubt. Self-doubt is paralyzing. It leads you to freeze. But idea doubt is energizing. It motivates you to test, to experiment, to refine. Adam Grant, Ph.D. (*1981) professor of organizational psychology, University of Pennsylvania, author, The surprising habits of original thinkers, presented by TED Talks 2016, minute 9:19, 15:34 minutes duration, filmed and posted February 2016

IQ, EQ, and multiple intelligences

See also: Professional intelligence – Gunter Dueck

  • IQ is a measure of one particular kind of reasoning, but that is hardly the only form of reasoning, and the evidence is overwhelming that the correlation between IQ and career success is essentially zero. What IQ correlates to is what profession you enter. Also, IQ as measured by standard tests has gone up over time too – the median IQ has increased. IQ is part of what it is to be smart, but it's only a small aspect of it. Look at the work of Daniel Goleman in emotional intelligence; look at the work of Howard Gardner at Harvard [University] and his [Theory of] multiple intelligences. I don't put much stake in IQ as a measure of human ability. Interview with Daniel Pink danpink.com (*1964) US American motivational speaker, chief speech writer of US vice president Al Gore (1995-1997), visionary author, The Changing Workplace, presented by US American eJournal, February 2006, reprinted by IIP Digital usembassy 3. June 2008

 

  • There is a seismic – though as yet undetected – shift now underway in much of the advanced world. We are moving from an economy and a society built on the logical, linear, computer-like capabilities of the Information Age to an economy and a society built on the inventive, empathic, big-picture capabilities of what's rising in its place, the Conceptual Age.
    The last few decades have belonged to a certain kind of person with a certain kind of mind – computer programmers who could crank code, lawyers who could craft contracts, MBAs who could crunch numbers. But the keys to the kingdom are changing hands.
    The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind – creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers and meaning-makers. These people – artists, inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, bigpicture thinkers – will now reap society's richest rewards and share its greatest joys. Daniel Pink danpink.com (*1964) US American motivational speaker, chief speech writer of US vice president Al Gore (1995-1997), visionary author, A Whole New Mind.

Female nonlinear web thinking vs. male linear step thinking

  • Women, on average, collect more bits of data, assemble that data into more complex patterns, and weigh more options as they make decisions. Women tend to see the big picture; they generalize and synthesize as they consider webs of factors – what I call "web thinking."
    Men, on the other hand, get to the point. Typically, they are more likely to focus on what they consider relevant, then ponder in a more linear progression: "step thinking."
    Both approaches have merit. Each has been traced, respectively, to the hormones estrogen and testosterone. And each evolved millions of years ago as women did more multitasking to rear the young, while men spent more time zeroing in on one thing at a time – often hunting game. Helen Fisher, Ph.D. (*1945) Canadian-American research professor of biological anthropology, human behavior researcher, Center for Human Evolutionary Studies, Rutgers University, expert on romantic love, chief scientific advisor to Chemistry.com, 8 Ways of Looking at Power, presented by US American monthly magazine O, The Oprah Magazine, September 2009

Test of wisdom

Holding two opposed ideas in mind

  • The test of a first rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) US American writer, The Crack-Up, February 1936

Collective thinking pattern

  • We think so because other people all think so; or because – after all we do think so; or because we were told so, and think we must think so; or because we once thought so, and think we still think so; or because, having thought so, we think we will think so. Henry Sidgwick (1838-1900) English utilitarian philosopher, economist, cofounder and first president of the Society for Psychical Research, member of the Metaphysical Society

 

 


Tundra near Dudinka at the Jenissej, Sibiria, 5. August 2000
  • They (men) would sooner die than think. It is very curious that the universality of an opinion should have so much weight with people, as their own experience might tell them that its acceptance is an entirely thoughtless and merely imitative process. But it tells them nothing of the kind, because they possess no self-knowledge whatever. Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) German philosopher, faculty member, author, How to Argue Logically.The Art of Controversy, Haldeman-Julius Co, 1. January 1926

 

  • Before you speak THINK!
    T = is it true?
    h = is it helpful?
    i = is it inspiring?
    n = is it necessary?
    k = is it kind?

Quotes by David R. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

  • To quiet the mind, certain motives have to be surrendered and relinquished to God:
    1. The deisre to think.
    2. The desire for the pleasure of thinking.
    3. The comfort of guarantee of the continuation of one's existence.

Weighing thoughts, thinking, and thinkingness

 

  • Inasmuch as the mind cannot innately discern truth from falsehood, it's only defense is reliance on reason and the intellect. Thus, education is of benefit on many levels. To the unevolved ego, however, the capacity to think is subverted from reason to rationalization in order to justify emotionalised positions. The distortions of truth then tend to fall into stratified levels concordant with the concomitant levels of society. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Truth vs. Falsehood. How to Tell the Difference, S. 255, 2005

Thinking – Knowing – Being


 

  • Thinkingness goes on, but I am not thinkingness, nor am I the quality of thinkingness, nor am I the content of thinkingness. Thinkingness is happening spontaneously. [...] Thinkingness goes on and then if you want to put all these thoughts together with a descriptive term you call it mind. The habitual positionalities that mind takes we collectively term ego, so ego is then just a descriptive convenience. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Seminar Causality: The Ego’s Foundation, 3 DVD set, January 2002

  • Thinkingness goes on and then if you want to put all these thoughts together with a descriptive term, you call it mind. The habitual positionalities that mind takes, we collectively term ego. Ego then is just a descriptive convenience.
    Thinkingness goes on by itself, you don't have to call it anything at all, except to realize it's not you. You surrender it as it happens. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Seminar Devotion: The Way to God Through the Heart, 3 DVD set, 27. September 2002

 

  • Question: How do you stop that thinkingness?
    Answer: You become enamored of God, instead of enamored of the thoughts. To discern the Presence of God in all that exists, is a gift that suddenly comes forth of its own when the willingness to surrender all that stands in its way. The gratification, the satisfaction, the excitement of thinkingness. Feelingness, emotions, [...] It's a great leap because we transcend the instincts of the animal, we transcend the thinkingness of Homo sapiens, and respond to the Divinity within us. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Seminar Karma and the Afterlife, DVD 1 of 3, Arizona, October 2002

Manifestation [holding something intently in mind] scrutinized by mentalization

  • To hold in mind that which you would like to see happen in your life increases the likelihood of its materialization. I have used it practically every place I ever lived. I held in mind that which I wanted and where I wished to be […] the general setting. You can picture pristine woods and the sounds of animals and the sounds of water going by and it materializes. Mentalization would be trying to figure out how to make it happen. That is mentalization – left brain. Just do it generally and leave the rest to God. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Seminar Experiential Reality, 3 DVD set, 18. February 2006

Integrative thinking – Daniel Pink

Integrative Thinking is the marriage of the left and the right brain.
Thinking outside the box seems hard in a surrounding where most people think, in fact, dwell inside the box.

 


Right-brained qualities and expressions
In his book A Whole New Mind. Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future (Riverhead Trade, March 2006)
Daniel Pink depicts six right brain aptitudes that may enhance life, learning and careers:
Design, story, symphony, empathy, play, and meaning.

1.DesignSuperseding function(ionality) to engage in patterns and senses.
Design is a whole-minded skill, engineering and aesthetics.
Minute 26:17
2.StoryConveying ideas and promoting products and services works better by narratives, not just by arguments. Facts are less valuable since anyone can google them on the Internet. Commercials and movies tell stories, give series of episodes, which deliver facts with impact. Story is more effective because that is how humans operate. Communication counts, saying things well is a valued skill.Minute 36:31
3.SymphonyAbility to see the big picture thinking (not just detail focus), adding invention (creativity). Seeing the big picture, filtering out meaningful currents from the host of information, combining two things into something new. The challenge is to team-teaching and to unleash and see the practicality of multi- and interdisciplinary approaches that combine e.g. biology and philosophy. Abstract abilities, like literacy or numeracy, become feasible given the proper environment, context, setting.Minute 45:40
4.EmpathySuperseding logic and engaging in feeling and intuition. 
5.PlayBringing humor and light-heartedness to work, business and products. 
6.MeaningContext, significance, immaterial abstract feelings and values and impact of situations, people and products.

Thinking complexity

Systems thinking can be roughly summarized in/as ten thinking skills, used to make decicions on
