The lack of critical thinking as a skill seems to apply to positions beyond design as well. However, I believe it is one of the most important aspects of being a designer. It’s interesting. The job will ask for an out-of-the-box thinker. But often what they really mean is: “We don’t want you to think to far outside our established boundaries.” Doing so threatens the foundations of authority in their eyes. It also will likely result in change. And there is nothing humans despise more than change.
