2 - Six thinking hats
In this context, the Hat is an image of something that covers the brain, and the color is associated with specific emotions and feelings. Edward De Bono defines six hats: the white hat, which he calls neutral and objective; the red hat, which he links to emotions and feelings; the black or logical-negative hat; the yellow hat, which was originally called speculative-positive, but can just as easily be called logical-positive as the opposite of the black hat; the green hat, which is creative; and finally, the blue hat to control the thinking process.
