What's the Pattern?

Monday, 25 July 2011   |   Creativity Games

Random CirclesThis week we're sleuthing.

Game:  There are 6 random (or seemingly random) words below.  Your aim is to identify any patterns you can in the words.

  • toothbrush
  • carriage
  • signature
  • pudding
  • drum
  • paperclip

Challenge:  For extra challenge, the order of the words must remain as above.

Strategy: A lot of creativity is being able to see the patterns that are present but not obvious.  The better you are at discovering these patterns the more creative you can be.  Patterns can be clues to interesting characteristics and behaviors.  Patterns can be exploited to obtain a certain outcome.  Patterns can be used to create interesting effects.  You should always be on the lookout for patterns.
