People (at a large scale) are not interested in improving their thinking skills. Or, at least, are not interested in investing to it. Most people in companies, but also in scientific communities feel happy and comfortable with their thinking skills, or they are interested in a "single-click" solution. So is it true that people are not interested to invest efforts to improve their thinking skills?
The concept we are trying to focus is:
is there a way to get people to improve their thinking since the need is apparently self-evident.
The fixed point is:
Making it actual. It happens somehow as opposed to swapping ideas about it.
That's a false dichotomy, BTW. See how easy it is for these pesky things to slip out? It's either this OR this. Bollocks. Spondoolicles. It's usually both. And more.
Luis: I argue for, and you argue against the superiority and completeness of de Bono methods. Or we could just drop it.
Suddenly, argument appears to be the attractive mode of thinking. Thank you for advertising your desire to advance the thinking here using argument at this point. I don't think that is the genre of exploration of the topic I had in mind. Invitation declined in this instance.
Luis, dear. Sleep. We are on a ride. Go through the tunnel for a while. Quiet and nothingness is sweet. There is more time to think tomorrow maybe. We all need to power-cycle the equipment. The state of "off" is a wonderful state to be in.
