    A Misconception about Six Thinking Hats!

    Blue Hat: Big Picture Thinker
    White Hat: Fact Thinker
    Green Hat: Creative Thinker
    Yellow Hat: Constructive or Positive Thinker

    More on Six Thinking Hats: The (Non)-Musical

    Posted by:

    Quick follow-up to my previous posts (here and here) on Asher Treleaven’s Six Thinking Hats stand-up comedy routine.
