The Oxford English Dictionary defines lateral thinking as "a way of thinking which seeks the solution to intractable problems through unorthodox methods or elements which would normally be ignored by logical thinking." It means thinking differently: thinking not only vertically or logically, but sideways too. It means being prepared to put forward unusual ideas to arrive at a new thought. Parallel thinking is designed to help an individual solving a problem, understand all aspects of the problem it focuses more-so on constructive and co-operative and co-ordinate thinking. De Bono's six thinking hats use this lateral thinking technique.
If there are more than one person with that color on, then the person who has more red, or black or yellow etc. on then he or she goes first. Beside each hat the decision that we came up with as a group will be written down. Conclusion The purpose of the six thinking hats is allowing a thinker to deal with one thing at a time. Instead of having to take care of emotions, logic, information, hope and creativity all at the same time.
The six most important tools in Carl Sagan’s “Tools for Skeptical Thinking” are Occam’s razor (this rule affirms that if there are two hypothesis are evenly well argued then it is better to go with the simpler one), confirming information using independent sources, encouraging debate from knowledgeable participants, having multiple hypothesizes, not becoming too attached to one’s own hypothesis, and making sure that every part of a chain argument makes sense. These tools are the most important in the “Tools for Skeptical Thinking” because they stress the importance of objectivity, rationality in analyzing an argument. Using these six rules makes it easy for people to analyze an argument and determine if it is logical.
Once you shovel the pop-lit drivel where it belongs, you are free to apply his suggestions to your own work. It is a good idea to check your story for too much obvious meaning. Not only will this make the story shorter and clearer, the hidden meanings imbedded in the story will have a chance to be probed and discovered. As well, avoid "signpost" sentences that could easily be replaced by more legitimate conversations or actions. A lot of emphasis is put on simulating a sense of "in-ness"; that is, giving your work a believable lived in feeling.
However, if we choose to use the Six Thinking Hats technique, we will than be able to mix emotion, our skill in execution, sensitivity, creativity and good contingency planning. (Mind Tools, 2007) The Six Thinking Hats technique is six different hats with six different styles of thinking. The first hat is the white hat or "the facts, just the facts." (The de Bono Group, 2007) This hat is more focused on the data that is available. With this hat, you need to look at all the information that is in front of you and see what you can learn from it.
Instead of linear or vertical thinking, which rely solely on logic, Lateral Thinking is a deliberate, systematic process of using cognitive ability to think in a different way. He opines that these proven methods make insight, creativity and innovation happen and by using these, he suggests that everyone can learn at least a basic level and proficiency on how to be more creative. Lateral Thinking provides the power to create ideas on demand (de Bono, 2007a). De Bono developed his concept of the Six Thinking Hats in order to provide an illustration of the various means of thinking utilized by individuals within the problem solving process. Each hat represents a “mode” of thinking commonly used.
Leveraging this knowledge, we can analyze the mistakes from the past, to build a better present, and develop new strategies to solve problems that can occur the future. Evaluate only the ability of the individual. Meanwhile, have the responsibility to act using the tools acquired. In conclusion, education and experience are the key ingredients of success. Pino 2 Blink is a book that makes us reflect on unconscious resources that we have, those resources are available to us in order to improve as a person.
Critical thinking is the usage of knowledge and data to effectively solve problems and make decisions in life. Thinking critically allows us to distinguish nonsense information, promotes thorough thinking and communication skills, and the revelation of long-term consequences. There are six types of thinking as stated by psychologist Benjamin Bloom: remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, and creating. These are ranked from the lower to higher levels of thinking. It’s said that all levels of thinking are important but the lower levels are constrained more (finding one “right” answer) whereas the higher levels you get the freedom to express your own solution/find several answers.
One of the most effective ways to improve a paper is by incorporating examples of what is being written about. Mr. Roberts makes it a point to prove the importance of such examples. If the reader does not understand a part of the paper then having it broken down with an example can easily help to dismiss any confusion. There are three types of writing; the concepts of "colored writing", "colorful writing", and "colorless writing." Paul Roberts breaks down and explains the differences of these concepts.
Laws are vital to human happiness because they are the guide of life, and knowing what you ought to do and what is expected of you. Laws can be the perfect escort to the world but they are times in which laws should be broken, and it becomes the person’s choice to know if they go with what the law is saying or not. That is why there is wonderful people who exceed human morals, they made the choice of following the laws or having their own voice against something they do not believe in. Laws are what helps order the world. Schumacher on Philosophical maps as well as Charles E. Rice and, 5o questions on Natural law are two philosophers who I will use to backup my point.
