  1. These are interesting techniques that I would like to try by myself and with others to brainstorm. I have used mind mapping in the past, but the doodle technique and randomness are new and unexpected ways of being creative I am willing to try. Overall, this is an effective video to share techniques, however, my lower rating is based on the bored and monotone voice of the narrator. If you want people to be creative, you must get them excited! The narrator makes me want to fall asleep instead of making me feel jazzed and energized to brainstorm creative solutions.
