The intent of the proposed research effort is to identify the critical thinking skills that apply particularly to the reasoning and understanding of complex social contexts. The skills set defining this critical thinking capacity would allow soldiers to respond effectively across an array of complex social and interpersonal contexts that increasingly characterize their missions. A second intent of this proposal is to design a comprehensive training strategy that targets particular high impact critical social thinking skills. The training interventions to be designed as part of this Phase I effort will be grounded in best practices for developing critical thinking skills reported in the educational and training literature.
