Colour: a red heart, blood
Aim: to get everyone to STATE their feelings, emotions and intuitions and then get them OUT of these quickly.
How do I / others feel about this?
Are we doing the right thing?
Could we be doing this better?
What is the gut feeling about the problem?
Here our emotions: fear, hate, love, suspicion and jealousy can be brought in to the foreground so that they do not influence the meeting subversively. Once we know these we can keep clear of emotive areas.
Sometimes it's good to use this hat twice: once at the start and once at the end. This is to try and gauge if peoples feelings have changed as the meeting has continued.
