The main aim of divergent thinking is to generate as many ideas as possible. One of the traditional tools for divergent thinking is "Brain-Writing" (BW) in which users use one idea to generate other ideas. But the problem with traditional BW is that the users are restricted to viewing a limited set of ideas on the worksheet at one time; and they are also restricted from writing down more then 3 ideas at a time. In this research, we propose "Dynamic Brain-Writer" (DBW), an integration of 3 different systems"Brain-Writer1 (B-W1)", "Brain-Writer2 (B-W2)" and"Brain-Writer3 (B-W3)" all of which has different functions in BW. We conducted 3 different types of test implementing B-W1, B-W2, and B-W3. We confirm not only the quantity but also our research; on the other hand, focus on qualities of ideas generated by 3 different groups using 3 different Brain Writing systems. Our experiment doses not show much difference among 3 different groups who used 3 different systems. Over all 3 different systems shows slight change among themselves.
