Alone and Need Ideas? Try This Tool

There is something to be said for the dynamic that occurs when people can engage and bounce ideas off of each other.

Sometimes though, we need to come up with ideas on our own. One great tool for this is the Reverse Dictionary.

The human mind is great at making connections between disparate concepts, at building off of metaphor. A Reverse Dictionary provides idea fuel for the brain.

The best way to learn about this is to try it yourself. To get the ball rolling though, I’m going to walk through an example.

Say I’m looking for a way to decrease problems in nursing homes. I entered in three words on the main page: ‘loneliness, mistakes, illness’. Three terms that define what many people in nursing homes go through.

The results are here. When I look at these 100 terms I see some that are curious, others that I have no idea what they are, some that seem totally unrelated. Those are the terms that I follow up with and investigate further. I’ll list some of those here…
