Consequential Dilemmas: 45 Flowcharts for Life’s Bigger Questions
You’re probably thinking the hardest part about creating a flowchart is sketching it out. It’s not. The hardest part is deciding whether or not a problem can be tamed by a flow chart at all. It’s a matter of coming up with something that can support a network of query complicated enough to be interesting, but simple enough to fit on one page. You can’t use a flowchart to list a set of characteristics that, when multiplied or arrayed on a spectrum, give weight to an answer. That’s basically a Myers-Briggs test. You can’t do it with questions that don’t nest neatly. That’s better in a Buzzfeed quiz. You can’t do it with something that no one cares about. (That’s almost everything.) It’s hard!
