Yup… Reshonda can tell you: I’m still biased and my process is still beset with heuristic biases. First phone conference, I slipped into my usual analytic/ linear thinking and examined the lists of words trying to find patterns and clues. I am still having a hard time changing my way of thinking from linear to, well, multidimensional… And it’s hard to steer away from those well grooved tracks that are heuristic biases.
Second phone conference, I put Reshonda under the spotlight. Her insightful remarks led me to finally associate ‘Spoon’ with ‘Intestines’ and ‘Wean’, and had me visualize a synergy between form and content. Also, writing down notes on the ongoing conversation, I realized just how I wanted to redesign my concept map for improved visual clarity especially that I was now going to look for connections between a hundred different concepts.
A couple of ‘thinking wrong’ victories: holding back my opinions and restarting instead of adapting an existing project to fit into a changing thought process.
