What is scientific attitude?



Answer:
An enquiring mind - looking for patterns, unexplained phenomenon, deeper understanding of things generally accepted as understood

Scepticism - healthy mistrust of 'common sense', reproducibility as a key test

Willingness to abandon received wisdom - trust in experimental evidence over 'ideas'

Rational - faith in logic, mathematics and reason as fundamental tools.

Sense of beauty - a feel for elegance in math; a preference for the simplest explanation; an understanding of Occam's razor in logic
Being a scientist, I would guess it means approaching everything with the attitude that it must be proven through a logical set of steps. Kinda like the scientific method (hypothesis, experiment, etc.) Some people would probably describe this type of attitude as "critical" or over-analytical.

It may also be describing an approach to life or events in the absence of blind faith.
Scientific attitudes are the traits that a scientist should possess in order for him to succeed... these traits includes honesty, rationality, curiosity, healthy criticism, effective, efficient and others.
Approaching everything with non-bias and performing a controlled experiment with only one variable, or maybe two.

Thinking like the Hoff basically.
