Scientists on all levels in their careers are working hard to make significant contributions to the research in their laboratories, and all are employing one essential skill - the ability to think critically and analytically. At the same time, the load and pressure of daily tasks often do not leave enough time to evaluate whether the approach to problem solving and analysis is always optimal and logical. For example, expecting that an observed pattern increases the probability of its continuation, or concluding that, as a pattern, it cannot be random, are logical errors. At the same time, the ability to think critically and analytically is the most transferable skill that researchers can bring to the table in any employment inside and outside academia.
