Thinking CreativelySeptember 19th, 2007 by infomancy
One of my favorite non-library blogs, Copyblogger, has a great post today about creative thinking: Do You Recognize These 10 Mental Blogs to Create Thinking? This goes way beyond the traditional “thinking outside the box” as Brian Clark explains,
People like to call this “thinking outside of the box,” which is the wrong way to look at it. Just like Neo needed to understand that “there is no spoon” in the film The Matrix, you need to realize “there is no box” to step outside of. [Copyblogger]
The 10 mental blocks presented in the post are very intriguing. I think that one of my strengths is creative thinking (one of my weaknesses is following through with detailed, repetitive maintenance tasks) and it was interesting to read through and recognize many attributes and practices in this post. I can’t help but note that these are also things that sometimes get me in trouble during interactions with other types of thinkers.
