Lateral Thinking is Inborn

Lateral thinking is inborn and exists in children to a large extent. But as they grow up our system at home and school education generally kills this urge to think creatively since our parents/teachers are incompetent/hesitant to answer the questions particularly the why's of many things and hence shut the door to creativity very early.
We are looking today at a problem with many solutions but not the challenges of many problems with a single or simple solution. If you ask the right question perhaps we have the right and lateral solution.

Lateral Thinking and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

It is my opinion that lateral thinkers could well be associated with scholars who have Attention Deficit Disorder.
In my experience, the majority of entrepreneurs are also possessed of a rebellious streak in that they refuse to fit into their allocated "box".
As school children these people often ended up in the lower streams and, on leaving school, give range to their lateral thinking abilities, finding business opportunities that their peers miss.
