How You Can Discover
the Best Answer Yourself

How YOU can find effective answer to almost any question, problem, challenge, opportunity or situation

by Win Wenger, Ph.D.
Click onto Solving Problems and you will find directions to more than a dozen different effective and creative problem-solving methods, any one, or any combination, of which can be put to your question and used to generate some surprising and great answers. —For you have some surprising and great resources within you, easily found and brought online. Of those procedures:


STEP ONE revolves around the fact that in most problem situations which have been pursued for awhile, what one knows has proven inadequate to solving the problem, and in fact has become the problem by standing between one and the fresh perceptions one needs in finding the solution. That knowledge is not, however, useless, as it can be used to trigger some further perceptions. So an effective starting method could be either Windtunnel, with a live partner if possible or with an audio recorder if not, or with a somewhat longer flurry of writing in Freenoting.

STEP TWO:   After reviewing and selecting the most interesting ideas to come out of that process, create a more specific and more powerful question from that context you've built.

Main general instruction from here:  The main problem in problem-solving is how to get beyond what we "know" about the problem situation, to get to those fresh perceptions wherein to find our best, most effective answers. The main general way how:  Expect to be surprised by what comes up. Go for being surprised. Intend to be surprised. This way, you let yourself be surprised by what comes up as your answer.

Second general instruction from here:  To the extent that the matter you are addressing is important, you want to verify your answers, however they are gotten. No human information process is without error and flaw. But the problem-solving methods you find here are among the very best shortcuts to finding the best hypothesis to test.

STEP THREE:   Take that specific and more powerful question you've developed, and run a very different kind of method on that one. You used a verbal-Socratic type method in Step One; also available to you are methods for letting yourself be shown your sought-for answer by "spontaneous" or UNdirected visualization; methods for finding it through external imagery found in your environment; methods like Borrowed Genius or Build Ability to Understanding or the Calm-Breathing Patterns to change your base-state and eyes and mind-set through which you are viewing the problem situation.

After you've gotten some experience with ImageStreaming, you may find your very best powerful method, at least for the most powerfully important questions and issues, to be High Thinktank—but work your way up to that instead of starting off with that.

STEP FOUR:  By whatever (and preferably different type of) method, find a way to verify and question your process for operational details. Implement your finding, beginning with whatever is the first starting point that you control.

We have found these past several years that by combining different types of methods such as shown above, we get more powerful and more accurate answers than even the one best method alone taken separately (whichever method is the best).

You now have the means, straightaway and in one simple package, to be and become what you want to be, and do what you want to do and experience what you want to experience. The main question remaining, then, is whether you have enough self-direction to act on such a means.
