Decision Grid Part II: New Concepts

Part II follows the identical flow of Part I but with a twist.

Decision Grid, Part I visually demonstrated the process of how recall, memory, thoughts, ideas and stereotypes process within our minds o deliver a decision. 

In Part one, all players are instructed to consider one identical question "What is the meaning of the word __Rose___?

Players are given 5 seconds to jot their answer on Card #1 then turn the #1 card face down and pass the card to their neighbor.

Human beings are a diverse, imaginative bunch.  Depending upon the complexity of the initial question, the chances are great few responses will be the same.

Part two, players receive Card #1 from their immediate neighbor which contains their idea of the meaning of the word Rose.

Card #2
