Product Description
This GIF/slide explains this common pattern of manipulation and sloppy thinking. It includes a counter-strategy and memorable humor from Woody Allen and Yogi Berra. In a complex world, we sometimes jump at the quick fix (fast thinking) instead of working through a careful analysis of all relevant possibilities (slow-thinking). However, this short-circuiting of critical thinking opens us up to manipulation by someone clever enough to simplify the world so that our best choice seems obvious even though other options are not mentioned. This 6-frame (7-seconds each, continuously looping) animated GIF can be used as a bell-ringer or a slide within a PowerPoint slide show about critical thinking or avoiding fallacies when writing essays. Image size 960×720 (file size 894 KB). Note: You can pause an animated GIF during a PowerPoint Slide Show by Right-Clicking your mouse and later resume animation with a Left-Click. This mouse-trick works in PPT 2010, but other PPT versions may work differently.
Used/tested and engaging with English Composition, English 101.
