    You could try a process of listing the advantages and disadvantages for each side of an argument. There are usually pros and cons to each.

    Also when I did design work I used to generate at least 6 possibilities- including the extreme options- such as do nothing or clear everything and do pros and cons for each. It helped me work out different solutions and come up with a novel solution.

    Having spent a year in the USA I could see that the two party system seems to create more of a black and white political environment. Or Red and blue. Where as over here we have a number of other parties putting alternative views which have to be talked about even though our system means that relatively few of their MPs end up in parliament.

    I believe that the universe is ultimately black & white, too. But upon developing presbyopia, have determined that all gray areas are just those areas that remain out-of-focus to us... ;)

    (And nobody has everything in clear focus.)
