Here are the six hats for ready reference:
  1. White for facts, figures & information (Virgin white)
  2. Yellow for positive thinking, brightness and optimism(Sunshine)

  4. Black for the negative judgement, why it will not work (Devil's advocate)
  5. Red for emotions and feelings,hunch & intuition (Seeing red)
  6. Blue for the orchestra conductor, cool and control, thinking abt thinking (Blue ocean).

All of them together make great thinking.
