Critical Thinking Development
If…then ltd has been active in the field of Critical Thinking for over ten years. It is renowned for its considerable experience and innovation in providing training, developing critical thinking skills, business decision-making, teaching, and other services in this subject.

- People who eat a lot of chocolate feel guilty about this and this adds to negative feelings to create depression.
- Severely depressed people are more likely to have time off work, giving more opportunities for chocolate-eating.
- All of these?
