Abstract:Do futurists really think differently? Does focusing on the future shape distinctive thought patterns and problem solving methodologies? Is there an inevitable futurist signature not unlike that of science fiction authors? If there is such a separate commodity as futurist thinking, are its benefits sufficiently generic and attractive enough to overcome the typical resistance to looking and thinking ahead?
