The Purpose of Six Thinking Hats

  1. Six thinking hats represent six different thinking modes 

  2. When we wear a thinking hat, it only means that we have the intention to think; we must try to analyze the problem from the perspective of the color thinking hat through role-playing , so that the thinking hat can play a real function.

  3. With six thinking hats, we can analyze problems thoroughly and make correct judgments by considering multiple perspectives.

The Framework of Six Thinking hats : 
1. White Thinking Hat (Data and information): 

  • Only data is collected , and factual basis is presented objectively and neutrally; white hats represent evidence, figures, and information in the thinking process.

    2. Red Thinking Hat (Emotional and Intuition): 

  • Just express emotions , directly reflect emotions, and make intuitive judgments; use red There is no need to find out the basis of thinking logic or justify thinking.

  • Example: "How do we feel about this matter?"
