Fallacies in reasoning

crossbwA fallacy is an argument that uses poor or invalid reasoning. Unfortunately all of us are victims of poor reasoning while presenting our own arguments, or believing poor arguments of others. This happens in the workplace, while studying and in our everyday life. The more discerning are able to sense that some arguments are poor, but are unable to define or cogently explain why it is poor reasoning. In training on Critical Thinking, fallacies are explained and illustrated. Take a look at some of them here.

When asked which skills new college graduates needed to improve most, more than half of the respondents to the question on The Wall Street Journal's survey of 479 college recruiters named some combination of critical thinking, problem solving skills and the ability to think independently

 

What is an Argument? An argument has two elements: A Claim and a Premise. Example: Harish will get admissions in IIT because he is a school topper. The Claim: Harish will get admission in IIT. The Premise: Harish is a school topper. In other words: Harish is a school topper, which means he is very intelligent, and so he will get admission in IIT. The better a Premise supports a Claim, the better the argument is. For examle if we were to say: "Harish will get admission in IIT, because his father also studied in IIT"  then it is not a good or strong argument, since the premise (his father studied in IIT) doesn't convey anything about Harish's intelligence and his ability to clear the entrance exams. You could conclude that harish must be intelligent because his father is - but that is a very tenous conclusion and doesn't make the premises strong.
