Defer or Suspend Judgement
As Osborn learned in his early work on brainstorming, the instantaneous judgment in response to an idea shuts down idea generation. There is an appropriate and necessary time to apply judgment when converging.
Focus on"Yes, and" rather than "No, but"
When generating information and ideas, language matters. "yes, and" allows continuation and expansion, which is necessary in certain stages of CPS. The use of the word "but" - preceded by "yes" or "no" – closes down conversation, negating everything that has come before it.
