Reflect on your experience of the Ideation exercise by answering the following questions:

1)  How did taking the position of an Extreme User influence your thinking in relation to the design challenge? Was it different to how you usually generate ideas and empathy?

Of course, it is different with what we often do with ideas and empathy. When we generated ideas for an extreme user, we could focus on the specific ideas to satisfy the needs of the majority which could match the design target users. Also, this could help us jump out of our mind stereotypes what the way we usually think and work.

2)  Did any of the other design thinking techniques (design provocation cards, stories, storyboards, etc.) help you to work through ideas and collaborate with your group members?

Yes, there are lots of design thinking techniques that could help us to think as the users which could focus on user experiences and empathy. For example, design provocation cards are kind of method of ideations that could imagine multiple ideas and points. Also, storyboards are the design techniques that really help us to conduct the scenarios how your design story work on the specific situations with users.
