Is psychology problem solving

Psychology is arguably one filter for problem solving–particularly in the inter-personal context, but also in the intra-personal one as well.

I would suggest that its use as a filter in problem solving is probably best expressed in:

* Coaching as a practice
* Teaching and learning
* Expertise and creativity literature and methodologies
* Organizational development and leadership
* Conflict resolution
* Emotional intelligence
* Social intelligence

The insights of design thinking seem to flow most directly from psychology and anthropology:

* Empathy
* Role playing
* Feedback loops
* Play
* Observation
