White Hat The White Hat calls for information known or needed. "The facts, just the facts." This was easy, it needed lots of observation and thinking about what my friends, relatives and colleges say about getting enough sleep, getting to the root of the problem
Yellow Hat The Yellow Hat symbolizes brightness and optimism. Under this hat you explore the positives and probe for value and benefit. Staying optimistic in every situation, did become a bit challenging for me, but once it tried it a few times during the assignment, I noticed that I was even applying it in my real life. This was the best thing in the whole course by far for me till now.
Black Hat The Black Hat is judgment - the devils advocate or why something may not work. Spot the difficulties and dangers; where things might go wrong. Probably the most powerful and useful of the Hats but a problem if overused. This was the easiest for me, since I think in my opinion, I think one step ahead at all times, trying to switch over from this hat was difficult. Also, setting the boundaries as to how far you should let the problem slide, needs to be learnt by me.
Red Hat The Red Hat signifies feelings, hunches and intuition. When using this hat you can express emotions and feelings and share fears, likes, dislikes, loves, and hates. Making myself vulnerable is not easy, I would rather go out of the way to help someone that try to ask for help, call it pride if need be, so be it.
Green Hat The Green Hat focuses on creativity; the possibilities, alternatives, and new ideas. Its an opportunity to express new concepts and new perceptions. I really liked doing this also, its my most favorite, but at times I do get carried away thinking my way is the only best way.
Blue Hat The Blue Hat is used to manage the thinking process. Its the control mechanism that ensures the Six Thinking Hats® guidelines are observed. Whenever we sidetracked someone or the other reminded us to think with one thinking hat at a time and I think it streamlined whole the process a lot, and helped us not get distracted.
