The correct answer to this question is C, Relativistic thinking promotes the view that something is the truth because it is the truth in my point of view. Relativistic thinking is from educational psychologist William Perry. It is apart of his model, called intellectual development. This type of thinking has many concepts, which include processing on a deep level and critical thinking.

Perry developed this model after evaluating how a person thinks about things during their college years. He found that when they use relativistic thinking, they pull from different perspectives and critically reflect on them. After reflecting, they find the answer based on the specific situation.
