For family activities and your thinking skills
In every enterprise it is people’s thinking that generates real wealth from resources. Of all skills, ‘thinking’ is the most strategic. It multiplies value. When you improve your ‘thinking’ you improve everything. Thinking fuels and enhances all other skills, so that investment in raising your thinking performance brings returns in all activities.
When you search across the internet for guidance to raise your thinking skills, you will come across many resources, for instance for critical thinking, emotional intelligence, and even creativity. From this website we offer a unique set of tools, ‘Thinking-Intentions’, that integrate all these elements of thought within an elegant, easy to learn, model of mind.
The research and teaching that underpins Thinking-Intentions, and how you can take advantage of these tools can be found here The Research and Your Thinking Skills. No Sign up required.

The 25 Thunkies give a name and a visual representation to the thinking-intentions that drive thoughts. They are a child-friendly ‘alphabet’ of your faculties for thinking. Here are the images of them all:
We all use the same mental tools, though we are not always aware of them. What’s special about the Thunkies is that parents and children can play with them. Together you learn how to think better assisted by the weekly Thunkies activities.
