Divergent Thinking

You can check out the Wikipedia page for this or listen to this Sir Ken Robinson talk about it.  Definitely watch the Sir Ken Robinson talk about it.

Basically, it’s the ability to see lots of possibilities.  It’s seeing the question and the answers in every single possible way.  It’s the ability to think outside of the box, around the box, through the box, and over to a world beyond boxes.

It’s possible to be a genius at divergent thinking.  People might look at you funny and might even think you childish, but according to Sir Ken Robinson, the older we get, the worse we become at it.

I wonder what it would take to get better at Divergent Thinking.  Any ideas???? Hmmmm????
