Quick view of the model (open complete model with iMODELER):


Here‘s a small model that should have a unique solution. That is the challenge: Use to following factors so that the connections of the model make sense:

  • Climate change
  • Prosperity here
  • conventional behavior is cool and comfortable
  • Peace
  • Prosperity in the rest of the world
  • Sustainable lifestyle
It should be a good exercise to understand the difference between direct and indirect impacts and much more.
Please discuss the model here on KNOW-WHY.NET but send your solution (the model, a link, or a sceenshot) to and share it later.

Sorry for having been too forward, but now with the number of points changed everybody can start from the scratch. A discussion of the model after the solution would be interesting …

Kai Neumann replies Dirk Fabricius

your answer was correct but I have changed the number of points in the empty factor boxes so others have to think for themselves :-)

So far about 50 percent of the many solutions we have received were correct right away. So, take the challenge, be proud if you handle it and don't be frustrated if not right away :-)

I suggest (count of points transformed to numbers):

1 Climate change
4 Prosperity here
5 conventional behavior is cool and comfortable
3 Peace
2 Prosperity in the rest of the world
6 Sustainable lifestyle

Die Idee ist prima. Gleichung mit 7 Bekannten und vielen unbekannten Verbindungen (oder Verortungen?)
Werde mich am WE mal daran versuchen.
