☆ brainstorm アイデアを出し合う
The most common meaning of “brainstorm” is for when a group of people get together to have a discussion to produce ideas. You can brainstorm on your own, of course, but the original meaning is of a group of people discussing ideas to solve problems.
Obviously, brainstorming to solve problems is a positive idea, right. However, this is kind of interesting, if you use “brainstorm” as a noun (today’s word is a verb), in England, the meaning is quite different. If you have a brainstorm, it actually means that you suddenly become unable to think clearly!! How funny that the meaning of brainstorm is so different in England, compare to the USA.
