{product-noshow 32|name|cart|picture|link|border|menuid:206|pricedis3|pricetax1}

The strategy of using personal analogies or anecdotes to move information stored in the subconscious to a more conscious level (thereby making it available for problem-solving) is an effective technique for promoting creativity, eg

In dealing with a problem of water pollution, imagine that you are a polluted river, and describe how it might feel

This allows you to get inside a problem, and view it from a different angle

Types of analogies include

- direct ‐ biological or natural, to provide creative insight

- fantasy ‐ useful in overcoming cultural blocks of creativity; it has been suggested that divining rods and metal detectors came from fantasies of magic wands
