Critical thinking helps people to consider and analyze a wide range of information. The importance of strengthening this skill is doubly important for managers because it causes the achievement of success and passing of crises. Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal Test, is one of the tools to measure critical thinking, and is designed to combine aspects of the skill and tendency of critical thinking. The purpose of this study is to investigate the psychometric properties of this test at the Iran gas transfer company managers by using validation and reliability methods in order to be used as a suitable tool for identifying and measuring critical thinking in Iranian sample especially among managers. The sample of the present study included 472 staff managers who were present in the study of "Draw the psychological identity of the managers of the Iranian Gas Transmission Company" in 2018-2019, and electronically responded to 80 questions of the test. The findings of this study showed that the test in the aforementioned community has four dimensions of analytic thinking, evaluation, interpretation, and assumption. While its original version has five dimensions, exploratory factor analysis revealed that the two components of inference and inferring should be integrated into each other and this new component was called analytical thinking. Also, confirmatory factor analysis of the model with four components was meaningful and desirable in all fit indices of model. According to the results of this research, we can use the Watson - Glaser critical thinking test can be used to achieve practical purposes.
