The Thinking Like a Detective IQ Matrix explores how to solve problems more effectively by thinking like a detective who is solving a case. Sherlock Holmes is one of the most well-known detectives. Countless books have been written about him, and various movies and TV shows have also explored his life. Yes, he is a fictional character, however, his ability to read people and solve crimes was uncanny. This mind map unlocks the secrets of how to think like Sherlock Holmes, however, this is of course not about solving a criminal case, you are instead provided with a step-by-step plan for solving a typical life problem.
Here is a summary of the Thinking Like a Detective IQ Matrix:
- What’s Required?: The first couple of branches of this map breaks down what’s required to get you thinking like a detective when facing a difficult problem. To think like a detective requires that you mentally prepare and ready yourself before jumping into the problem solving process. You must effectively train your mind using these guidelines to get yourself into the right frame-of-mind for problem solving.
- Solving a Problem: The final two branches of this map explore a six-step problem solving process used by detectives such as Sherlock Holmes. This problem solving process will help you to effectively work through a typical life problem using effective questioning techniques, rigorous observation skills, and research to help you come up with a solution for the problem at hand.
As you progressively work through this map you will become more familiar with how to solve problems more effectively using a step-by-step approach similar to that used by detectives such as Sherlock Holmes. And of course with practice, problem solving will become second nature. In fact, problem solving will become a lot of fun as each problem you face becomes a detective case that must be solved. 🙂
