Socratic Questioning

Date created: 2021-11-09

It’s a way to establish First-principles thinking.

  1. Why do I think this? What exactly do I think?
  2. How do I know this is true? What if I thought the opposite?
  3. How can I back this up? What are the sources?
  4. What might others think? How do I know I am correct?
  5. What if I am wrong? What are the consequences if I am?
  6. Why did I think that? Was I correct? What conclusions can I draw from the reasoning process?
