Explore information, ideas, and insights from reading materials for creative options
Motivate, inspire, encourage, expand, and explore thinking
Encourage to ask different questions, and to give different responses
Think unconventionally, wisely, and creatively
Appreciate ambiguity/uncertainty of situations
Probabilities than certainties
