In this discussion forum, you will
assess the validity of popular assumptions and beliefs about problem solving.
Please note that your answers need be supported by scientific evidence. 
For your initial post, complete the steps below:

  • Watch the video, Rory Sutherland:
    Sweat the Small Stuff
    on how simplicity can benefit problem solving.
  • Select one of the following topics:
    • Laypersons and scientists alike often report that
      after having tried to solve a problem for an entire day, “sleeping on it”
      led to a solution. Does sleep indeed promote problem solving?
  • Select a theoretical view/model of problem solving
    (e.g., Gestalt psychology, information processing approach, etc.). What is
    the evidence that supports it?  What evidence, if any,
    does not fit the model? 
  • Are experts better at solving problems than
    non-experts? If so, what is responsible for experts’ superior performance?
    Is their superiority general or limited to their field of expertise?
  • Are there individual differences in problem-solving
    abilities? For instance, is working memory’s capacity linked to one’s
    ability to solve problems?

After you select a topic, access the Ashford
University Library and Google Scholar and review the literature on problem
solving. Then select a research article that answers the question(s) related to
the selected topic. Lastly, share the evidence you have uncovered and your
critical examination of such evidence with the class.  Your initial post
must be a minimum of 300 words
