In this example, the manager clearly acted out of emotions without first finding out if that employee may have been really sick or possibly even hospitalized. He simply didnt have all the facts and clearly acted on emotions of that moment and did not consider all the facts of the situation. It is very clear that the emotional thinking style, at least in the example, can leave little room for critical thinking. Emotional thinking is done out of instinct and often done on the first reaction each person has without considering all the facts.
