Figuring Storming

by Shubhankar Kulkarni on Aug 25, 2020

Another slight modification to "figuring storming" is "Superstorming". If you had superpowers, how would you then approach the problem? Turning into a superhero might make you take a more blunt and aggressive approach. Having the X-ray vision of Superman could help with transparency issues. Each superpower may open a new way to overcome the challenge.

In some cases, you don't necessarily have to think of yourself as an entirely different person. Try imagining that one single attribute of yours is different - your race, gender, or even weight. Does that make a difference in how you see the challenge? Every time you change an attribute, your subconscious opens a new door that might lead to your answer.

A year ago I set out to write an article about brainstorming but never finished it. I had all these paragraphs ready. Your session came handy to put them to good use:)
