Are you a skeptic? Refer to figure 1.7 in your text book. Is there a principle of scientific thinking you often use in your life or believe you should use? State the principle from the text book you use or believe is important to use. Describe an everyday experience in which you could use this principle to help you learn about the world. For your everyday experience explain how another person, who does not use the principle, would act. Make your example specific, that is, provide enough detail to show your knowledge about the principle and how it is used.
