Quoting from a blog posting on Bootsrapper (blog):
Why Don’t More Entrepreneurs Use Critical Thinking?
There are probably three main reasons that more entrepreneurs do not use critical thinking:
- Critical thinking is not learned naturally by most people, without catalyzing conditions.
- It’s not commonly taught in the public education system, if anywhere at all, and certainly not in many careers.
- The results of critical thinking sometimes resemble idealism, and there’s a chain of confusion about idealism. It’s confused by some with “bleeding-heart liberalism”, which is confused with socialism, which is confused with communism – considered a sin by most Americans. Idealism and communism are wholly different, but how do you go against this kind of societal misconception?
- Having capital to throw at a problem often dulls the thought process towards coming up with more cost-effective, efficient solutions.
