Transcript of "1. critical thinking"

  1. 1. Quiz How many elephants would fit into the library, floor to ceiling?
  2. 2. Edward DeBono’s Six Thinking Hats Six distinct states are identified and assigned a color: – White: (Information) Considering what information is available, what are the facts? – Red: (Emotions) Instinctive gut reaction or statements of emotional feeling (but not any justification) – Black: (Bad points judgment) Logic applied to identifying flaws or barriers, seeking mismatch – Yellow: (Good points judgment) Logic applied to identifying benefits, seeking harmony – An optimistic view – Green: (Creativity) Statements of provocation and investigation, seeing where a thought goes – Blue: (Thinking) Thinking about thinking
  3. 3. White Hat With White Hat thinking, you focus on the data available. Look at the information you have, and see what you can learn from it. Look for gaps in your knowledge, and either try to fill them or take account of them. This is where you analyze past trends, and try to extrapolate from historical data.
  4. 4. Red Hat 'Wearing' the Red Hat, you look at problems using intuition, gut reaction, and emotion. Also try to think how other people will react emotionally. Try to understand the responses of people who do not fully know your reasoning.
  5. 5. Black Hat Using Black Hat thinking, look at all the weaknesses and negatives of the argument. Look at it cautiously and defensively. Try to see why it might not work. This is important because it highlights the weak points in a plan. It allows you to eliminate them, alter them, or prepare contingency plans to counter them. Black Hat thinking helps to make your plans 'tougher' and more resilient. It can also help you to spot fatal flaws and risks before you embark on a course of action.
  6. 6. Yellow Hat The Yellow Hat helps you to think positively. It is the optimistic viewpoint that helps you to see all the benefits of the decision and the value in it. Yellow Hat thinking helps you to keep going when everything looks gloomy and difficult.
  7. 7. Green Hat The Green Hat stands for creativity. This is where you can develop creative solutions to a problem. It is a freewheeling way of thinking, in which there is little criticism of ideas
  8. 8. Blue Hat The Blue Hat stands for process control. This is the hat worn by people chairing meetings. When running into difficulties because ideas are running dry, they may direct activity into Green Hat thinking. When contingency plans are needed, they will ask for Black Hat thinking, etc.
