You need other people to tell you that your idea is wrong, so you can learn. Help people do that by asking them what they’re up to (as a conversation starter); figuring out how to articulate your own uncertainties and unknowns, because your conversational counterparts might have the knowledge you need; and demonstrating a genuine interest in listening. Draw from the personal experiences of others and from the specific information they may provide to improve your hunch, refine your problem, and help you reconceive what you prototype for impact. You innovation prototype will accrue people through these conversations; eventually, they may become users, team members, or participate with you on your path forward in some other way.
