How does the TSA test help with Philosophy?
The Thinking Assessment Test is designed to trigger deep cognitive sense and develop logical thinking skills to solve problems and make decisions. Philosophy is one of the fields of study where these skills are considered the be-all and end-all.
The Thinking Assessment Test helps you gain clarity in the areas of philosophy, which makes you a critical thinker. The skills you acquire will also benefit you in any other field you may choose. Especially if you are pursuing a PhD in Philosophy, where you will need to think at the highest level to develop answers to age-old questions.
Philosophy requires you to have a strong sense of logical reasoning so that you can make compelling philosophical arguments. Fortunately, if you score well on TSA, it means that you have already developed this trait and would do very well in the field of philosophy.
