How can I think sociologically? What a great question! One of my students asked to me and I answered; "There is no one way to think sociologically. Firstly, I love people and interaction among them. Always ask myself what is the role of people in the society? I questioning this in my mind and support with readings, listening, life experiences and discussions. So another question is 'where is society?'. Actually society is over there. But we couldn't see. We need to step back from your place and start to think on those issues. We need to think about what is going on around us. We need to think about ourselves. We need to observe and think in depth. That's the one way of thinking sociologically."

Dear , I am terribly sorry for the late answer. Thanks for the question. You know the sociology is the science of society. We tend to be think of our problem, our career, our relations and so on. People have some reasons to proceed their everyday life and sometimes they miss what is going on around them. To think sociologically means looking at the big picture of the life. Observing the environment. Such as, making an empathy. You are trying to understand people around you and try to reconceptualize your behaviour. Why you are change your behaviour? Beacuse you are think about other people and giving a meaning to your new thoughts. Best!

I think the best explanation for 'thinking sociologically' may be the concept of the 'Sociological Imagination' by C.Wright Mills, which speaks to one's ability to understand problems in their specific(particular) context - he called these problems 'private troubles' while being able to frame them in the context of the world - as 'public issues', thus divorcing themselves from the particular problem. I hope this helps :)

Have you ever had a situation where you instinctively felt you knew the answer right away when you were presented with a challenge? While often we are encouraged to think through, Malcolm Gladwell argues in his book "Blink" that this is not always needed. Why? 📌 We are able to do "thin-slicing", which refers to our ability to quickly recognize patterns and situations based on very short pieces of information. 📌 Although we often feel we need more information to make a decision, it is an illusion. While we get a feeling of certainty, we are often more prone to make mistakes. I highly recommend this book where the author combines sociology, psychology, marketing and criminology to explain how our unconscious mind works by using interesting examples. What are your favorite books these days?
