Decision Grid Part I: Introduction
This is a game we devised for a Toastmaster meeting a few years ago as an in-house visual demonstration of how thoughts and ideas process within our minds.
The Decision Grid follows the flow of decision-making from the moment a question or situation arises to the instant a solution, an answer or hypothesis seems to magically pop into our minds.
How it works:
The Decision Grid process helps to visualize how the mind determines meanings behind words and actions which convey thought and idea from one person to another.
Questions trigger the brain into bringing in and evaluating new ideas and concepts against current memories, ideas and concepts.
How it works:
First a question, situation, event comes to focus.
The brain thinks about the idea, brings up memories of available information, what is already known, processes any new or changed information, makes a decision, provides a decision, physical response or action.
