Explanation of the tool

First determine and write down the relating factor. The relating factor is the similar phrase that fits both sides of an analogy.

On the top and bottom of the left side of the bridge, write in the first pair of things that have this relationship. On the right side of the bridge, write in the second pair of things that have the same relationship. The bridge can continue with more relating factors.
