System Thinking Ensures Your Opinions Are Well-Informed

System Thinking will allow you to work out the noise.
American politician, sociologist, and diplomat Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said, “You have the right to your opinion. But you do not have the right to your facts.

You may be concerned that System Thinking will make you a Spock-like character that is not very good in relationships. But the opposite is true, in truth.

Using System Thinking makes you more open-minded and more capable of understanding the points of view of others.
System Thinkers are more empathic and able to get along with different types of people.

You are discouraged from jumping to conclusions by System Thinking. If debates get hot, you can count on being the voice of reason. You will also be better able to detect when others are disingenuous, do not have your best interests at heart, or try to exploit or manipulate you.

System Thinking Makes You a Better, More Informed Citizen

“An educated citizenry is a vital requirement for our survival as a free person.” This quote was incorrectly attributed to Thomas Jefferson, but his words of wisdom are more relevant than ever, regardless of the source.  System Thinkers can see both sides of any problem and are more likely to find bipartisan solutions.

Propaganda is less likely to sway them, or they are swept up in mass hysteria. We are in a better position when they see it to spot fake news.

System Thinking is considered to incorporate a wide range of subjects and to develop a wide range of intellectual skills. One might say it’s a cross-curricular support for the body, and to stay healthy, the mind must be worked just like a muscle.

System Thinking, among many other things, promotes the development of things like:

•             Reasoning skills 

•             Analytical thinking 

•             Evaluative skills 

•             Logical thinking 

•             Organizational and planning skills 

•             Language skills 

•             Self-reflective skills 

•             Observational skills 

•             Open-mindedness  

•             Creative visualization techniques 

•             Questioning skills 

•             Decision making 

This list could easily be expanded to include other skills, but this gives one an idea of just what is being developed.
