3. Helps us recognize and trust the natural organizing power of our own minds.
4. Spurs our thinking further.
5. Moves us into a reflective mode that lets us consider larger, more complex relationships.
6. Moves us into an analytical mode that allows us to examine the parts to get to the whole.
7. Moves us to examine and explore our language.
8. Stirs our creativity as we play with figurative language.
