  • 0:00 - 0:03
    The last term in this section that we're going to talk about is the idea of
  • 0:03 - 0:09
    metacognitive thinking. In metacognitive thinking, is the process that includes
  • 0:09 - 0:14
    the ability to first think and then to reflect on one's own thinking. So it's
  • 0:14 - 0:19
    thinking about thinking. So if you ponder how to solve a particular problem,
  • 0:19 - 0:23
    and you first think about the solution and then you think about the process to
  • 0:23 - 0:29
    get to that solution, that's metacognitive thinking. Now this ability is not
  • 0:29 - 0:33
    universal. Without specific training, many people have difficulty questioning
  • 0:33 - 0:35
    their own thinking.
