Question and answer
Does Critical Thinking, in general, require us to remove emotion and bias?
The critical thinking skill is one of eliciting a thought process that will remove an emotional bias. These biases may hinder our ability to think clearly and correctly on a given subject. [ [ With the tools of critical thinking you can breakdown the subjective barriers and understand the "hidden reality" of a given set of data or circumstances. Our emotions can trick us into bringing unnecessary bias into the evaluation equation, when the fact is our bias and emotions should play no part in whether a statement has any validity or not. Feelings don't count, in fact they obscure the
course of summation. We must learn what our biases are in relation to a given piece of information so that we might counter our bias and reach the logical conclusion unhindered. Whether you laugh, cry, scream, vent or boil, your emotions have absolutely no bearing on validity whatsoever. Logic is the key to critical thinking skill , not emotions. ]

are tax companies providing a service or taking advantage of people who need the money by offering an instant refund loan? explain
Weegy: Instand refund loans provide instant gratification to people who sometimes just want the money now. [ Some people could find themselves in a cash bind, and require the money right away, but it is not good budgeting practise to live on less than what you make, and require money suddenly and quickly. Tax companies are providing an option, though it is an expensive one. ] (More)
