Thinking Outside the Box — Literally

first_imgThe Wall Street Journal:Just how potent is the metaphor “thinking outside the box”? To find out, researchers built a literal box out of PVC pipe and cardboard — 5′ cubed.Roughly 100 test subjects were given a 10-question word-association test designed to measure one kind of creativity (sample item: What one word links “measure,” “worm,” “video”?). As they answered, participants sat inside the box, sat outside of it, or sat in a room sans box.People sitting outside the box answered more questions correctly than either of the other two groups (and the difference couldn’t be explained by claustrophobia or confusion, both of which were measured). Creativity seemed to be spurred by the acting out of a familiar figure of speech, the researchers said. (The cover story for the experiment was that was exploring the effects of different work environments.)In a variation on that experiment, people pondered creative puzzles while walking a rectangular path in a laboratory; freely departing from the path when they wanted; or while seated. Once again, people who walked “outside the box” had the most creative answers.Read the whole story: The Wall Street Journal More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Location:Boston, MA Posted March 14, 2012 Cujo Members Link to post It may be the same template as the VooDoo, but I love these. Especially the “Carolina Blue” matte helmets and blue jerseys.

Unfortunately, it’s also the only thing I like about this entire uniform. The striping template was played out years ago, the number font is okay but the coloring design ruined it & makes it look cheap, “PHL” was an awful idea, & as good as the blue helmet looks, the black helmet just looks bad in comparison.All in all, they hit a home run with that blue helmet. Swing & a miss on the rest.last_img read more
