The Six Thinking Hats IQ Matrix explores how to think more effectively, critically, and creatively about your problems, life, and circumstances using the Six Thinking Hat’s approach to problem-solving. This method for problem-solving was originally created by Edward de Bono and is now available in a mind map format along with an accompanying 30 page eBook.
Each branch of this mind map explores one of the Six Thinking Hats. Each hat approaches the problem from a slightly different perspective. The blue hat is the managerial hat that controls the problem-solving process. The white hat takes a rational approach. The red hat takes an intuitive approach. The black hat takes a pessimistic approach. The yellow hat takes a realistic approach with a positive spin. And the green hat approaches the problem from a creative perspective. In combination, these hats can help you to effectively work through any problem you might face.
Here is a quick break down of each branch of the Six Thinking Hats IQ Matrix.
Each branch summarizes the various roles, objectives, and the questions you should be asking yourself while wearing one of the six thinking hats. So, whether your objective is to solve a problem, to overcome an obstacle, to brainstorm a new idea, to improve your decision-making or for academic purposes, the Six Thinking Hats will help you find the solutions, answers, and the opportunities you need to keep you ahead of the game.
Stick with these principles, memorize, and incorporate them into your daily thinking regime, and you will progressively overcome complex problems using Edward De Bono’s Six Thinking Hats method for solving problems.
