Metacognition – Wikipedia

Metacognition is an awareness of one’s own thought processes and an understanding of the patterns behind them. The term comes from the root word meta, meaning “beyond”, or “on top of”.[1] Metacognition can take many forms, such as reflecting on one’s own ways of thinking and knowing when and how to use particular strategies for problem-solving.[1] There are generally two components of metacognition: (1) knowledge about cognition and (2) regulation of cognition.[2]
