An interpretation of this is that critical thinking depends upon practice at discussion which is based upon giving and assessing reasons; and furthermore that it is opportunity for informal discussion and not formal education which is the most important factor for this. No significant association of critical thinking with discipline was found, as would be the case if the differences in teaching-led demands for discussion were the important variable (either due to disciplinary differences, or to teaching habits in different departments).
