Composition 87 なぜなぜ分析(アイデア大全)




'Why?' human beings always ask themselves or others. Even though it is hard for them to obtain an answer, they don't stop seeking. Vague answers, such as, 'It happened by chance,' or 'There is no particular reason,' cannot satisfy humans. Sometimes they want to invent a nonexistent reason ground, and then they retract their question soon after succeeding in justification — for example, a witch trial, a scapegoat, and so on. Readers probably have experienced those cases more or less.
It is the properties of human beings that makes Five whys looks easy. Humans want to know new things and search for reasons by nature. They have asked all along, 'Why?' since they possessed consciousness. So, when they hear how to do Five whys, they despise it, 'Oh, what a child's play! Everyone regularly practices something like this.'
In fact, it is a little challenging to execute Five whys. People who try Five whys must repeatedly ask, 'Why?' even after getting a plausible answer. That opposes the tendency of humankind. After all, Five whys conforms to the quality of human beings in one way but goes against it in another way. Because this tool oversteps our thinking habit, it gives us a fresh idea that we never can draw from a superficial analysis.
