The Creative Imagination Class

by James K. Sayre

Towards the end of our Senior year in High School, a few of us were selected to attend a special two-day Creative Imagination class given at the University of Pittsburgh by two young enthusiastic Psychology Professors. They suggested a new method of group problem solving: instead of looking for a few good "logical" traditional ways of solving a problem, instead first make a master list of many different solutions with suggestions from everyone, including some ideas that might at first glance, seem too weird or too odd. After making this first list, then carefully winnow it down to several of the best ideas. I guess this is what folks now call "thinking outside the box." Anyway, we got to skip Friday classes with the two-morning seminar at Pitt and got a nice visit to a University campus.
