The ability to create connections of ideas is useful to know how to associate/combine differ-ent ideas of others to build a new and original one. This ability can be used to integrate new ideas, knowledge into existing frameworks, to relate new concepts to those that have already been and to make connections between many discrete and distinct observations. This ability involves good self-awareness and the ability to make decisions constructively, evaluating the possible options, weighing and assuming the consequences and responsibility of the choices made. This skill implies the ability to negotiate, to mediate: strategic ability both on the individual and on the whole, to find continuous solutions in line with the objectives to be achieved.
