The Six Thinking Hats is a thinking training model developed by the British scholar Dr. Edward de Bono, or a model for comprehensive thinking. The biggest obstacle to thinking is confusion. We always want to cover everything, feelings, information, logic, hope and creativity. It's like throwing a few balls at a time.

It provides a tool for "parallel thinking" to avoid wasting time on disputes. The philosophy of the six thinking hats is to seek a way forward, rather than arguing about who is right and who is wrong.
