In Forced Analogy, participants generate a random list of things-animals, objects, or people and write them on index cards. For each item, participants write the qualities or attributes. Then shuffle the cards and distribute them randomly. They then use the cards to develop analogies to the problem or issue at hand, asking: How is this problem similar to [random object]? How would I solve this problem with [random object]?
