Various techniques to help u think more creatively when faced with a problem. The below site contains all the techniques that i know of save 3, i'm sure there are even more out ther if yur bothered to look.

http://www.brainstorming.co.uk/tutorials/creativethinkingcontents.html

click the link under the training and tutorial page next to each technique, u don't have to reallly bother with anything else.

Bellow is the previous post that i mentioned in the title

Many people dn't realise lateral/creative thinking is sumthing that can be taught to ones self

one excercise that helped me to do so was the random word technique

below is a common example of how the technique works

say yur boss says to u, i want u to come up with an idea to improve the wheels(for cars) we are producing

i would then flip through the dictionary and stop at a random word like toothbrush. Then i stop and think, whats the benfits of a toothbrush? what are its attributes and characteristics? How does it behave and why does it behave like this? Then i think HOW can i apply these principles to my own problem. Think HOW can i make this work and disregard any initial thoughts that the two are entirely unrelated.

This is how its suppose to work (using the above example of yur boss asking u to come up with ideas about the wheel)

REPLACING THE WHEEL WITH A TOOTHBRUSH - i see a tire made out of the brissels of a toothbrush

what are the benefits - moves easily through snow. potential damaging objects like sharp stones, move through the tire unharmed.

resulting relevant/practicle ideas - create a snow tire where the snow or water is forced through holes in the bottom of the tire and through small tubes in the rubber, squirting out. Stopping the tire tread from clogging.

- dimples in the tire so small stones are not felt by passengers.

FEATURES OF A TOOTHBRUSH - they get worn out if u use them for too long. They have springy handles so u dnt hurt yur teet/gums if u press to hard.

resulting relevant/practicle ideas - how about a tire with two layers of coloured rubber so that when the underneath layer shows through, it is evident that the tire needs replacing. police could spot balding tires from a distance.

- could the suspension be a flexible piece of metal instead of a spring

and so on

DO NOT THINK OF THE WORD OFF THE TOP OF YUR HEAD, AND WHEN U FIND A RANDOM WORD DO NOT THINK "I DN'T LIKE THIS ONE" push yur mind to be creative and make it work.

tech-ers that is vastly helpful for u desginers/entrepreneurs

a bit random but i'm sure it will be helpful to some

i get that to u simple step by step logic is akin to magic

i get that yur that immensly stupid

i get that yur a dumb hoe whos whole life can sumed up by yur average 25 min cheesy porno

but please...

do not measure others by yur own standards

in future if sumthing seems so impossible to u that it must be a "set up", then trust that this is only because yur mind is like yur body

worn out and worthless due to years of misuse

IMO althought you can learn to think a different way

Creativity is bred from young ages

and is in decline in these times cos all the kids have games consoles and too much TV that hinders their creativity

as a kid I rarely got to play games and we didnt have much money to buy toys

So all I did was play lego, make stuff out of cardboard, i once made a WWF arena and backstage with weapons and all sorts after my boy bought me two wrestlers for birthday and read Roald Dahl books, i owe my way of thinking to that.

Didnt you once make a thread asking for help with a business idea? Sounds like you need to learn to be a little more creative yourself...

Thanks for this
