Six Thinking Hats

Kamis, 06 Januari 2011

 Realize or not, we often think or look at something from one of sides. for instance, we get the big problem in our life. we often think negatively, or just let it flow without try to find out the solution, or we blame someone without reflect on ourselves. Otherwise, when we look at something, we should think from all sides. we should use six thinking hats b y Dr. Edward de Bono. 
what are six thinking hats? let's learn together..:-)

 The Red Hat

Intuitive: look at something based on their feeling in heart. Someone who thinks something with the read hat they will analyze it by listening to their heart.


 The White Hat

Informative:  Someone who thinks something with the white hat they will analyze it by looking for the data about that. They will collect the valid sources or information first before they judge something.

The Yellow Hat

Constructive: Someone who thinks something with the yellow hat they will analyze it by thinking positively. They will look at something, such as disaster from the positive sides. The yellow hat also called the sunshine hat because it always builds the positives point of view.

The Black Hat

Cautious: the opposite of yellow hat. This is caution hat.  Someone who thinks something with the black hat they will analyze it by thinking negatively.  They always look at something from bad sides, such as, think too much about the risk and disadvantage. However, this hat is good in particular times.

The Green Hat
CreativeSomeone who thinks something with the green hat they will analyze it by thinking creatively. They usually give the best idea and new solution that are not thought by other people. They do not stick with one thing. They can grow and development an idea.

The Blue Hat
ReflectiveSomeone who thinks something with the blue hat they will analyze it by doing reflection. Such as,  how can I do it better?
What mistakes did I make?
What did I learn from this? 
This hat also organizes all the others hat to think about something.

Now, we have known about six thinking hat. may we can apply them in our thinking. So, when we look at something we will use all the thinking hats. :-)

I meant that by using six thinking hats, I don't directly judge something or someone from one point of view. Hope we can really apply them in every single our thinking and action..:-)

With this 6 thinking hat we can think something from many sides and perception. It is very good for the teacher in facing students. For example when the teacher face the strange student who always fails in test, use these hat to decide wise decision.
