Whether you’re writing a comic strip or a college essay, as a Thinker, your mission is to come up with a lot of ideas and get out as much raw content as you can, as quickly as you can.
You probably didn’t learn how to do this in high school. That’s ok. We’ll teach you!
In the next phase, as a Storyteller, you’ll choose which of those baby chicks will be in your essay. In the Writer phase, you’ll polish them up and make them look pretty.
But for now, go for quantity, quantity, quantity.
