The point of the chart is of course to tout how well philosophers perform (yay us!) but what I find striking is how poorly communications majors and computer science majors perform. Oh, and there's a nice definition of critical reasoning in there, where "Critical is defined as 'the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action.'" I think communication and critical reasoning are closely related.
