There is definitely an advantage in collaborative thinking. The results of such thinking are substantially intelligible and fruitful. This might ring reminiscent to the truism that: two minds are better than one.

When you are merely listening to the sound of your own voice all the time then you won’t really be able to relate the idea to the next person. You’ll then be stuck with a situation where no one understands your idea/product. And thus, you’ve created a great product… that nobody actually wants.
