1) The REVERSE method
We are always directed to one way thinking, one direction.
e.g. America is a civilized country.
We REVERSE this direction by thinking:
America is NOT a civilized country.
God does NOT exist!
2) The WHAT IF method
We prefer to think in a comfort zone.
e.g. I am a bumiputra in Malaysia. Therefore, I have special privileges.
We ask WHAT IF: WHAT IF ….special privileges shall be taken away after 10 years from now?
3) The DISADVANTAGES method
We always highlight the defects of a thing but do not seek to make improvements.
e.g. We should discourage the culture of polygamy.
We list the disadvantages AND the improvements
disadvantages: a) men are incapable of fairness
b) male income is insufficient
c) women feel hard to accept
improvements: a) change the educational system to emphasize on development of quality men
b) increase the number of male student in universities
c) ban movies, cartoons like cinderalla, snow white which emphasis one man-one woman love stories. Rather create cartoons, movies that praise one man-many women love stories.
4)The COMBINATION (qiyas/analogy) method
When we have a problem, we focus only on the specific problem.
e.g. divorce rates have reached an extremely high level.
COMBINE the issue of the growing divorce rates with the issue of the growing number of graduates to find out more why divorce rates have increased so much.
why divorce rates grow: a) couples are too busy working, hence breakdown of communication
b) couples rush into marriage
why the number of graduates grow: a) online open universities make learning far more flexible.
b) overflow of graduate candidates in the market. A degree becomes a necessity of basic survival nowadays.
When we have combined and make comparison between these 2 issues, we discover new reasons for the rise of divorce rates:
A) too many ONLINE affairs. Affairs become more FLEXIBLE!
B) the MARKET has OVERFLOW of female CANDIDATES. Early marriage becomes a NECESSITY nowadays.
5) The B A R method
B = B-igger
A = A - dd
R = R - eplace
Sometimes we are stuck in creativity.
e.g. storage in my car is small.
Bigger = throw away back seats to make storage BIGGER.
Add = ADD something on the roof of the car to increase storage space
Replace = REPLACE handles with hangers
