1. Ch1. the way the mind works in Lateral Thinking. 

On this chapter, the author explains about the traditional six ways how the mind works such as code communication, the mind as pattern-making system, self-organizing system, limited attention span, sequence of arrival of information, humour and insight. At the conclusion, the author listed all disadvantages of these 10 system he explained above. Through chapter 1, the author wanted to say the reason why the need for lateral thinking arises.

Once I read this article, I had two question related with his opinions. Why people use traditional mind work such as code communication, even though people know the disadvantage of the traditional way and the needs for “Lateral thinking”? How can designers help the person to make flexible division of their memory through design outcomes?

2. Ch6. Context and Response in The Shape of Design.

In this chapter, the author is talking about the flexibility of design. For the flexibility, the author defines the design work as the best design acts ac a form of loosely composed, responsive moment, and seeks to have all the adjacent elements sway together, it would be much greater than just problem solving, because the best design has to offer much more than making problem go away. Therefore, he strongly speaks that the intuition is more important than the logic, because the design is always in motion and logical thinking has a tendency to break when all the part are moving. Once I read this chapter, I have two questions like below; Do designers need to be more instinctive not more logical? Do you agree with his definition of design acts or do you have any other definition of design acts replace the problem-solving?
