Creativity Exercise: The 9 Points Problem

The 9 Point Problem

Coming up with really innovative ideas requires thinking outside the box, getting a bit uncomfortable in our thinking and pushing ourselves a little more in our thinking. Here’s a short creativity exercise that you can try as a bit of fun. It is called ‘The 9 Points Problem’.

Imagine we have 9 points up here on the screen. Looking at this now, imagine you have a pen . Try to join up the 9 points or 9 dots using only 4 straight lines and without your pen leaving the screen. How would you join all 9 points?
