Which Half?

Students were recently given a sheet of paper that looked like what is shown below. The paper was divided in half by a line. Above the line was a question and below the line was a space with a single dot.

Responses by the class were an interesting investigation into what critical thinking is: the analysis of a person's own thinking. Class members were evenly divided over three class periods. Individuals had strong feelings about their preferences. 

We have to wonder, Why?

Which half of this page do you prefer?
