Drawbacks of 6 Thinking Hats

6 Thinking Hats hinder creative thinking.

How to think is important, but why so much attention on sequencing?

Although shortening the thinking process gives efficient decision making, shortening itself is not the goal and therefore should not be the focus. There is too much worry about whether the sequencing is right or not, and this is definitely not creative thinking.

Spending time identifying the correct sequencing or figuring out which is the right hat to use is also not effective problem solving.

Solving the problems with the optimal deicision is the goal.

However, what are the benefits of creative thinking?

If everyone is creative, then there is no creativity because creativity becomes the norm.
