Colors of Your Thinking

The one of the easiest ways to offend someone is saying something emotional and presenting it as “facts”. de Bono’s six thinking hats make it easy to show the color of your thinking or ask others to label their thoughts.

White hat is all about pure facts, figures and information.

Black hat finds faults and design errors pointing out why something will not work.

Red hat signifies the emotions, feelings, hunch and intuition.

Yellow hat thinking is about positive and constructive ideas.

Green hat is for new ideas and creativity.

Blue hat is for the control and direction of the thinking process.

For example my last comment on Dubai is a red hat thinking.
