CHIA LI-YAN KEW080007

Post  Chia Li - Yan KEW080007 on Tue 12 Jan 2010, 1:42 am

1. Write about yourself and your ambition critically.

Okay here goes about me. I am Chia Li-Yan from Kuantan, Pahang. I was born to this earth on the 3rd September 1988, which makes me 21 years old. I came from average family. I have a younger brother,18, pursuing his foundation in Multimedia University and a younger sister, taking her PMR this year. This makes me the eldest in the family. Because of that, I knew my responsibilities to set a good example for my siblings and my parents’ high expectation from me. All these factors motivated me to study hard during my secondary and pre-university, with the aim of earning a scholarship, to decrease my parents’ burden.

I studied in Methodist Primary Girls’ School (MGPS), an all-girls school, for my primary education and SMK Sultan Abu Bakar(SABS) for my secondary education and pre-university. So basically, yeah, i spent 6 years of my primary education with the non-existence of guys in school, except male-teachers of course. Luckily, there is a place called ‘tuition centre’ where we could mix around and make new friends, but then of course, that wasn’t the purpose of us being there, was it? Anyway, I spent more time listening to people’s conversations than actually joining into one. Well, I was a quiet person back then. This anti-social attitude actually stays on until I was in form2. Joining the choir group that year really changes me. I became a more sociable and cheerful person. Throughout the remaining years in SABS, the choir is one of the main reason I came to school and that was the most enjoyable moment in my school life.

The reason I continued my studies into Form6 is because I do not know what course am I interested in. I spent my whole holiday after SPM sitting in front of the computer doing nothing when I’m supposed to look out for part-time jobs or searching for courses of my interest. The last minute searching doesn’t help at all. This is one of my bad habits that I’m trying to get rid of until today.

Even after STPM, I’m still unsure of what course to take but because of my interest in computer games and suggestion from friends and family, I applied for computer engineering in University Malaya and actually got it. I was really happy back then and I said to myself I would study really hard to achieve good result. However, things do not always go as plan. Instead of studying, I spend more time on the computer, chatting, playing games and going for outing. Procrastinating is something that I do often though I kept telling myself not to.

Currently, I’m a 2nd year student in this course. Things are getting even tougher with more complex and requires a deeper knowledge of stuff that we’re studying. For my case, since computer engineering is the course of balance between both software and hardware in the engineering field, i’ll have to make sure that I graduate having both discipline at my finger tips at the end of the day. Being an engineer means having the knowledge and ability to design and solve any technical involved in the field. It is important to developed critical thinking skills when involved in any problem solving. As a future engineer, it is also crucial to look at different perspective and thinking out of the box in everything that we do. Thus, I aim to achieve all that and the criteria of a competent engineer in the years to come. I hope I will stay on the same track as I am after graduate and be able to apply everything learnt, in the future as a successful engineer.

2. Find the definition of thinking and types of thinking. How the types of thinking fit to yourself now and future.

Thinking is mental activity which allows us, humans, to model the world and to deal with it effectively according to own goals, plans, ends and desires. Thinking means manipulating information, as we involved in problem solving, forming concepts, reasons and not to forget, making decisions. Simply speaking, thinking is the process of using our mind to consider something carefully.

Types of thinking :

1. Critical thinking
Critical thinking is the identification and evaluation of evidence to guide decision making. A critical thinker uses broad in-depth analysis of evidence to make decisions and communicate his/her beliefs clearly and accurately.

2. Creative thinking
A process which we use when we come up with new idea. It is the merging of ideas which have not been merged before. Brainstorming is one form of creative thinking. It works by merging other ideas with your own ideas to create a new one.

3. Positive thinking
A process of creating thoughts, that create and focus energy into reality. It is a creation that bring a positive outcome, which we see as a benefit to not only ourselves but others as well. Basically, it is the act of thinking good and affirmative thoughts. It is a way to use your mind to reverse the damaging effects of negative thinking.

4. Convergent thinking
A style of thought that attempts to consider all available information and arrive at a single best possible answer. It is also the king of thinking that brings together information focused on solving a problem especially problem that have a single solution.

5. Divergent thinking
The opposite of convergent thinking where many possible solutions can be found. It is an approach to a situation or concept which focuses on exploring as many aspects of the concept as possible.

6. Analytical thinking
A powerful thinking tool for understanding situation. It is the ability to scrutinize and break down facts and thoughts into their strengths and weaknesses. Analytical thinker develop the capacity to think in a thoughtful, discerning way to solve problems, analyze data, recall and use information.

7. Systemic thinking
A simple thinking technique for developing system-wide insights into challenging situations and complex subjects very quickly. It puts the benefits of the system thinking. Systemic thinking enables us to deal with elements of a situation in concert rather than in isolation

8. Deductive thinking
Deductive thinking works from more general to the more specific. We think of a theory about our topic of interest and then narrow down into more specific hypothesis that we can test, collect observations to address the hypothesis and then finally a confirmation of whether our original theory is true or false.

9. Inductive thinking
Inductive thinking works from specific observations to broader generalizations and theories. We begin with observations and measures, then formulate hypothesis and finally end up developing theories.


3. How the types of thinking fit to yourself now and future.

I believe I developed critical thinking through my everyday life since life involved decision making. Problem always occurs unexpectedly and I always tries to solve the problem my own before sharing it with others. In future not only as an engineer, it is important to practice this thinking as we will facing more problems as we grow. As an engineer, designing or programming requires us to think critically and creatively in order to create something out of the box. Thus, analytical thinking is also crucial to be a competent engineer.
