Futurologists work differently from their colleagues in traditional social research. They undertake research into something that hasn't yet come into existence and their results will often contribute to change. As in other fields of research, studies of the future often set off from statistics, which are evaluated in the light of international trends and a number of emotional factors that may be of importance to the future.
On top of traditional analysis, the research team add their ability to think creatively and intuitively. Futurologists think the unthinkable.
