6 Thinking Hats

6 Thinking Hats, developed by Edward De Bono, is about creative thinking. There are 6 different colors of hats.

Blue - Managing the Thinking Process
White - Information Available and Needed
Red - Intuition and Feelings
Black - Caution, Difficulties, and Problems
Yellow - Benefits and Feasibility
Green - Alternatives and Creative Ideas

How can one have creative thinking when the thinking process is to be controlled by 6 different colors?

Free or boundless thinking is creative thinking. One is not bound to think. There is no structure and needs not any structure. Nobody can go anywhere with boundary, but one can go everywhere when there is no limit.
6 Thinking Hats is systematic thinking instead of creating thinking or parallel thinking.
