Jaap de Jonge, Management Consultant, Netherlands Interesting question. I think that current education systems (and modern technology) are not conducive to deep thinking and/or individual brilliance. On the other hand I think that major changes and scientific progress increasingly require teamwork rather than individual breakthroughs, due to their complexity.
