Edward De Bono's Smart Thinking


NOTE:Read by De Bono himself, makes it all more interesting. Dr. De Bono puts the tools for creative thinking in a nutshell. If you have never been exposed to De bono before, this is a must. If you are a fan of De Bono it acts as a refresher course in the Six Hats and Lateral Thinking tools. I am using this as the 1st step in introducing De Bono's techniques to my top managers.If you like De Bono you will more than enjoy this audio-cassette. This is my preference of all the De Bono audio-cassettes so far.

Good thinking is not a matter of intelligence, not a gift -- it is a skill that can be practiced and developed like any other. And whether you're a student, business executive or homemaker, the quality of the way you think is your greatest asset.

Now, the leading international authority in the field of creative thinking and the teaching of thinking skills presents a practical, easy-to-follow program to help you develop the tools and techniques of good thinking.

Lateral Thinking is a revolutionary method of generating new concepts and solutions -- a way to break your traditional patterns to approaching problems and achieve unforeseen, more effective results.

The Six Thinking Hats is a technique that utilizes six very different modes of thinking to achieve more effective problem-solving and decision-making.

Exploring different perspectives - Six Hats 

The Six Thinking Hats technique of Edward de Bono is a model that can be used for exploring different perspectives towards a complex situation or challenge. Seeing things in various ways is often a good idea in strategy formation or complex decision-making processes.

The STH technique is designed to help individuals deliberately adopt a variety of perspectives on a subject that may be very different from the one that they might most naturally assume. In wearing a particular thinking hat, people play roles, or "as if" themselves into a particular perspective. For instance, one could play the devilís advocate, even if only for the sake of generating discussion. The purpose of devilís advocacy is to deliberately challenge an idea: be critical, look for what is wrong with it.

Each of the Hats is named for a color that is mnemonically descriptive of the perspective one adopts when wearing the particular hat. For example the devilís advocacy is what one engages in when wearing the Black Thinking Hat.


The 6 hats and the perspectives they represent are:

  • White (Observer) White paper; Neutral; focus on information available, objective FACTS, what is needed, how it can be obtained

  • Red (Self, Other) Fire, warmth; EMOTIONS, FEELINGS, intuition, hunches; present views without explanation, justification

  • Black (Self, Other) Stern judge wearing black robe; judgmental; critical; why something is wrong; LOGICAL NEGATIVE view.

  • Yellow (Self, Other) Sunshine; optimism; LOGICAL POSITIVE view; looks for benefits, whatís good.

  • Green (Self, Other) Vegetation; CREATIVE thinking; possibilities and hypotheses; new ideas

  • Blue (Observer) Sky; cool; overview; CONTROL of PROCESS, STEPS, OTHER HATS; chairperson, organizer; thinking about thinking

De Bonoís hats are indicative of both emotional states as well as frames of mind (i.e., perspective from which an issue is viewed). He noted: "Emotions are an essential part of our thinking ability and not just something extra that mucks up our thinking" (1985, p27). One thinking style (or hat) is not inherently "better" than another. A full, balanced team recognizes the need for all hats in order for the team to consider all aspects of whatever issues they are facing.

Main benefits of Six Thinking Hats method:

  1. Allow to say things without risk

  2. Create awareness that there are multiple perspectives on the issue at hand

  3. Convenient mechanism for 'switching gears'

  4. Rules for the game of thinking

  5. Focus thinking

  6. Lead to more creative thinking

  7. Improve communication

  8. Improve decision making

Using the Six Hats

 In most group contexts, individuals tend to feel constrained to consistently adopt a specific perspective (optimistic, pessimistic, objective, etc.). This limits the ways and extent to which each individual and thus the group as a whole can explore an issue. With the Six Thinking Hats, one is no longer limited to a single perspective in oneís thinking. The hats are categories of thinking behavior and not of people themselves. The purpose of the hats is to direct thinking, not classify either the thinking or the thinker. Indeed, by wearing a hat that is different from the one that one customarily wears, one may chance upon a variety of new ideas. Wearing a hat means deliberately adopting a perspective that is not necessarily oneís own. It is important that all group members are aware of this fact. A group member must clearly identify the color of the hat he is wearing while making a statement. Wearing a clearly identified hat separates ego from performance. The Six Hat Method is useful even for individuals thinking by themselves.


Hats may be used in some structured sequence depending on the nature of the issue. Here is an example agenda for a typical 6 hats workshop:

Step 1: Present the facts of the case (White Hat)
Step 2: Generate ideas on how the case could be handled (Green Hat)
Step 3: Evaluate the merits of the ideas - List the benefits (Yellow Hat), List the drawbacks (Black Hat)
Step 4: Get everybodyís gut feelings about the alternatives (
Red Hat)
Step 5: Summarize and adjourn the meeting (Blue Hat)
