I am a bit disappointed that my problem solving rules are still NOT part of the schools' curriculums. However I know that even more important issues-as, say Cipolla's Laws, are also ignored by the practitioners of education; in the same time counter-education uses all the information and misinformation in its favor not wasting time with selection.
Today, searching for problem solving I came upon Schuman's rules http://sschuman.blogspot.com/2011/01/schumans-rules-of-problem-solving.html that were developed independently from my rules (and vice-versa).
OK these fine rules are based on the same NO-based thinking as my rules.
Schuman's rules are:
1- Don't be sure you have the right problem or purpose.
2- Don't be sure you have the right people
3- Don't be sure you have the right process or method.
Happy to see that both Schuman and myself have discovered something really fundamental about the real world
