CHALLENGING OUR ASSUMPTIONS
our assumption may be explicit or implicit.We act & thinking based on our assumption.We need to change our assumption if we want to think creatively.
we have misplaced or lost something,instead of starting from where we have been and progressive move from the last time we realise the loss,we start now and retrace our step.
FOCUSING ON THE UNUSUAL
one way of producing imaginative response is to focus on things which we usually do not pay attention to.In a lesson on human body,an unusual object of study may be the joint system and body movement.We may then go on to the creative posibilities of an assigment on designing a joint system that will allow aperson to do things that he cannot presently do.
We may stimulate this kind of thinking by using hypothetical or real situation.For example: What would happen if the world were really flat?What would life be like if there were no more tress?
SUBTRACTION AND REVERSAL
Subtraction is when we take away one aspect of product resulting in the creation of a new product.
Reversal is the other method of changing peoples thinking.
LOOKING FOR THE PUZZLING
Puzzles ,discrepancies and ambiguous item that confuse us.learning to settle the puzzles is one way of challenging us to think creatively.
PUTTING YOURSELF IN THE OTHER PERSON SHOES
It does not only help you understand his action and feeling but it is also useful in thinking of new product and services.We need to imagine our self in such predicament.
