Each hat has a different color that provides the name for the hat as well as its related function.
The white hat suggests neutrality and objectivity. The red hat deals with emotional views, feelings, hunches, and intuitions.
The yellow hat covers hope and positive thinking. The green hat expresses creativity and new ideas. The blue hat is concerned with thinking about thinking, the organization of the thinking process, and the use of the other hats. Throughout the discussion, hats are used and exchanged, although it is not necessary that people always consciously use one hat or another.
The purpose of the Six Hats is to provide a tangible way of translating intention into performance by simplifying and unscrambling thinking so that the thinker can deal with one mode at a time. It was also designed to allow a switch in modes of thinking by deliberately putting on a particular metaphorical hat depending on which mode of thinking is required.
De Bono contends that the artificiality of the thinking hats provides a formality and a convenience for requesting a certain type of thinking either by oneself or by others. Each thinker follows exclusively the mode of thinking indicated by the hat that is being used. The metaphorical use of the thinking hats also establishes rules for the game of thinking, and anyone involved in the game will be aware of these rules.
The Six Thinking Hats framework, therefore, provides a process that can be self-monitoring. Robert Weisberg, a cognitive psychologist, argues that there is insufficient evidence for the effectiveness of lateral thinking and that the creative process is better described as a process of logical thinking, trial and error, feedback, and reflection. Another criticism is that his description of traditional Western thinking overemphasizes the more extreme forms of adversarial argument apparent in some traditional methods of classroom practice, assuming that all Western philosophical thinking is necessarily adversarial.
