o The three valuable intellectual traits I can further strenghten are; Intellectual Perseverence, Intellectual Courage and Confidence in Reasoning.
We all have concluded sometimes that someone’s ideas or points of views are absurd, and they are not worth of considering any critical thinking on our part, but what if we are just wrong, because we never took the courage to be truth to those ideas and dedicate some time to explore them with critical thinking, I need to work on it. Also Intellectual perseverence is something I need to work on , being concious that; not matter the obstacles and difficulties I will stick to the principle of rationality, not caring what others might think about it. And lastly; Intellectual Autonomy, to be able to learn; I need to control my beliefs, values and inferences, using evidence and reason when evaluating someelse’s ideas or thoughts.

Anxiousness has been an issue that I faced for years. I always felt that things had to be done within a certain time frame in the day or in my life. If it seemed like I was not going to make a deadline or something that I felt like I was supposed to do that day, then I would go through an anxiety ritual that made me look like I was an unreasonable person. I thought that if things fell into place the way I thought they should, then everything was alright in my world. Well, what I found out is that nothing is ever going to go the way I want it to all the time or in my own time frame. Events take place that cause an effect on my (and everyone’s) life that are going to create different outcomes to something that was planned. I’ve learned that I’m not always in control of events that happen in my everyday life, so it’s useless and immature to get upset or anxious about things that I can’t control or not responsible for in life. Critical thinking has helped me deal with anxiety in a positive way. I’ve learned to think about the whole picture of why I’m stuck on a timeline and what would the outcome be if I didn’t make the timeline or event. Would I be in a negative place? Would it affect me as much as I thought it would? Would anyone else suffer from my actions? All these questions had the same answer, No. So, I decided to do what I could in the time that I had and not worry about getting everything done in a certain amount of time. I’ve also learned to take deep breaths to help calm myself down so that I could begin to rationalize my thoughts when I’m faced with pre-anxiety.
The three valuable intellectual traits I can strengthen would be; Intellectual Fair-mindedness, Confidence in Reasoning and Intellectual Perseverance.
I chose these three intellectual traits because I’m not always fair-minded in my thoughts, discussions, or intellect with others. I feel like this would be a starting point of my valuable intellectual trait that could use strengthening. Next, I believe that I would like to have the ability to make sound arguments and the confidence to reason intellectually. This would include accepting convoluted information and having the confidence in myself and what I’ve learned to process this information correctly. I think for me to use the framework of real life logic to send and receive valid arguments, it will empower me as a critical thinker throughout my life. Last, Intellectual Perseverance is the will and power for me to continue to think logically with responsibility, validity, and critically every day. For me to continue to persevere intellectually, I would have to make this a daily goal and a lifelong learning experience.
