The 5 Habits Framework

1) Evidence (How do I know what's true?)

2) Perspective (Who might think differently?)

3) Connections (What other areas of knowledge are connected?)

4) Supposition (How might it be different if..?)

5) Significance (Is this important?)

Model of Intellectual Resilience

The model of intellectual resilience is composed of 3 dimensions represented on 3 spectra.  On each spectrum there are optimal positions identified as a balance of two characteristics and their corresponding detrimental positions on the extremes.
The dimension of intellectual resilience are:

  • Orientation to Cognition-- explains the degree to which one trusts and accepts information.  The optimal position on this spectrum is a balance between open-mindedness and skepticism.  The corresponding detrimental positions are gullibility and cynicism.  
  • Orientation to Deliberation-- explains the degree to which one reacts or reflects to cognitive stimuli. The optimal position on this spectrum is a balance between contemplation and intuition.  The corresponding detrimental positions are paralysis and recklessness.   
  • Orientation to Determination--explains the degree to which one perseveres or relinquishes when mental resources become overwhelmed.  The optimal position on this spectrum is a balance between persistence and amenability.  The corresponding detrimental positions are obstinacy and resignation.
