Lateral Thinking and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Andrew Blaine, Business Consultant, South Africa
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.
