This hat is at the centre of the thinking process (blue because it suggests the sky - above all else - thinking about thinking). It is used to bring a sense or order and sequence to what is occurring. It is often used at the beginning and end of a discussion or or when things are getting confused. It can be used to help decide the sequence of hats, or when to exchange hats, or how to summarize information.
