Different ways of thinking

Edward De Bono is a creativity researcher that has proposed different methods to help stimulate creative thinking. From what I gather, he takes an active approach to research. Less on the scientific side and more on the pragmatic and results driven findings. One of his major contributions is the ‘Six Hats’ idea. I think someone in the class mentioned that they engaged in this type of activity in one of their jobs. Here is a video explaining each of the hats.

I am considering including some aspect like this in the game I am going to create. I want the game to be about changing one’s perspective to reinterpret object, images, and drawings. The idea of using a game as research is intriguing, but I wonder if injecting competition into the mix will skew the creative process.
