Six Thinking Hats. Edward de Bono. Red Hat Thinking. By Dominique Jeannette.
Red Hat Summary. When someone wears the red hat, they look at thinking in a whole new way. It makes it okay for your emotions to play a part in your thoughts. It also allows you not think about why you feel that way. Just allow it to happen. It covers two types of feeling; ordinary feelings such as mad, sad, and happy all the way to complex judgments like intuitions, sense, and aesthetic feeling. When wearing the red hat there doesn’t have to be a logical reason why, it just is.
Red Hat Thinking. When the red hat is worn by the thinker it allows them to say: “This is how I feel about the matter.” And there doesn’t have to be a reason why.
Red Hat Thinking. When wearing the red hat it legitimizes emotions and feelings and indentifies them as an important part of the thought process.
Red Hat Thinking. Not only does it legitimize feeling as an important part of thinking, but it provides a convenient method to switch in and out of the “feeling mode” in such a way that would be impossible without the red hat.
Red Hat Thinking. The red hat way also allows the thinker to extend it to others. It allows them to ask for a “red hat view”. In other words, what is your opinion on that matter without having to have a logical reason for why you feel that way.
Red Hat Thinking. There are rules that come along with the red hat. There should never be any attempt at anytime while where wearing the hat to try and justify the feelings or provide a logical basis for them. The feelings are just an ordinary part of the thinking process.
Red Hat Thinking. As said before, it covers two types of thinking. These are ordinary emotions and complex judgments.
Red Hat Thinking. The ordinary emotions are the most common ones. They range from strong emotions like fear and dislike, to more subtle ones like suspicion.
Red Hat Thinking. Then there are more complex judgments that go into “feelings” like that sixth sense, or your intuition, even taste, and aesthetic feeling. These are ones not-visibly- justified.
Red Hat Thinking. All types of feeling can fit under the red hat. It covers everything, and there doesn’t have to be a reason for it. Legitimizing your feelings is a crime while wearing the red hat.
Red Hat Thinking. But, there are times when thinking has to be justified, and you can’t put as much feeling into it. So, the red hat also makes it easy for people to switch in and out of red hat mode.
Red Hat Thinking. I think I am a red hat thinker on many different levels. A lot of the time I know what I think, but when someone asks why I feel that way I often am at a loss for words, or I really haven’t thought about why I feel that way. This is exactly what the red hat is for.
