Thought Something that pops into your head is not the type of thought we should aim at. Reflective thought results in belief that has importance attached to it and then leads to reflective thinking: the ground or basis for a belief is deliberately sought and its adequacy to support belief is examined (p. 1). Belief Something youre taught, and its built upon as you grow up. You accept it and believe it. It commits us to a certain way of thinking. Our beliefs have consequences if we dont questions them; they can hold us back for change and growth.
