I hope you had fun playing “The towers of Hanoi” and maybe asked yourself how our brain finds the solution for a problem.

We perceive a problem in the first case and according to our perception, we categorize the difficulty of a problem. After that, the problem-solution process consists of restructuring the problem until we find the idea of a solution. Thereby we use the knowledge we applied in the past to find a successful solution or put together innovative strategies to find the key we are searching for. The solution happens suddenly and is accompanied by an “Aha” sensation.

Wallas defines 4 stages of a creative problem solution:

  1. Preparation
  2. Incubation
  3. Illumination (Solution)
  4. Verification

Complex daily situations are compared to the “Tower of Hanoi” problem diffuse so there is no clear specification of what problem solution you actually are searching for. So a part of the problem solution is often to find the relevant information.

This time I invite you to play some chess and to train your strategic capacity of thinking.

If you want to play some science-based interactive games to train your memory, I want to invite you to make yourself a profile on:
