Problem Solver

David Murray

According assessments that I have had in the past, I am a natural thinker and problem solver. I think of problems as opportunities in disguise and feel a great deal of satisfaction in the actual process of research and thinking about the problem. I have a well developed natural ability to see relationships between seemingly unrelated things. This goes a long way to helping me in solving problems. I'm also very good at reading people and situations.

Techniques David Murray Uses:

Incubation - this involves analyzing the problem and gathering as much information as possible then allowing my mind to formulate solutions for detailed analysis.

I utilize information and resources from a variety of different sources that are not necessarily related to the problem at hand. Many times, I have found that using a variety of different sources allows me to make connections that are not apparent when the focus is too narrow.

Brain storming is another technique I use. I have found that it is a good idea to make use of people with unrelated skills as they can lookm at a problem from different perspectives.

In addition to this, I am a big believer in research. Having adequate information is very important in coming up with solutions to problems.
