  • Describing the Habits 04/19/10 District Activity - 2010 A Habit of Mind means having a disposition toward behaving intelligently when faced with problems, the answers to which are not immediately known. Research in effective thinking and intelligent behavior by Feuerstein (1980), Glatthorn & Baron (1985), Sternberg (1985), Perkins (1985), and Ennis (1985) indicates that there are some identifiable characteristics of effective thinkers. These effective thinking characteristics have been called Habits of Mind These are what intelligent people do when they are confronted with problems, the resolution to which are not immediately apparent. There are additional ways of thinking and the authors challenge us to continue to identify them.
