In a nutshell: Six Thinking Hats is a technique to deliberately bounce your team’s discussion between approaches like “new ideas” (green hat) and “evaluation” (black hat), in order to explore and expand your thinking on a particular issue. For instance you might say: ok I’m putting on the red hat now (“feelings and emotions”), or the green hat, or the white hat. Different types of discussion combine different thinking hats.
I love ChatGPT and I similarly use it to think through issues and rubber duck my way through writing code. So I’m intrigued about stretching AI chat in two ways:
Such as! Could you have a green hat AI bot and a black hat AI bot? You would use this to think through an issue from all sides, either on your own or with your team.
I made the first version of this as part of my personal multiplayer UI sketchbook, but the code was pretty scrappy. In this updated version you’ll find three interesting patterns that you may want to crib for your own PartyKit projects.
