Thinkibility – Thinking about Thinking, Creativity, Innovation and Design
Our main blog is Thinkibility, which is all about Thinking, Creativity, Innovation and Design. You will find a lot of interesting posts, be it that it is somewhat broader than innovation and creativity alone. We write it together with Asa Jomard. To surprise, inspire and explore experiences is at the heart of everything Åsa does. Her arsenal of powerful thinking tools have helped her to develop ideas to support adults to overcome their fear of exploring new ways to deal with real life situations. She has also taught children to use creative thinking tools to solve problems on a daily basis, as well as in academic situations. Inscribe here
What is Thinkibility?
Actually, we, the writers of this blog and forthcoming book, don’t know yet. But reading this may help you understand what could be meant by the concept Thinkibility.
We use the by us invented concept “Thinkibility” to explore what makes thinking special. It gives a global direction where to look. However, we assume we will never be able to define it exactly.
Thinkibility is a bit football-ity, similar to something shown by stars as Johan Cruijff. It is not just agility and ball control. Nor velocity, or skill. It is more, much more. Can you score with your thinking? Do you have a personal style of thinking?
An intuition we have is that Thinkibility has something to do with the ability to control your movements.
Thinkibility is about virtuosity in thinking. What about your ability to produce solutions in some problem domain? What skills does a well trained thinker have? When can we say a person have a brilliant and showy technical skill of thinking? How do we describe it adequately, like we do in “in a final bravura the ballerina appeared to be floating in water”, or “the music ends with a display of bravura”
Do thinking-critics exist, like there are film critics who write reviews about movies they have seen? What makes someone regarded as one of the finest thinkers in the world in particular for his dexterity, capable of executing extremely fast and fluent thinking like for musicians is said?
