Lateral Thinking - Sometimes Suppressed

This is the way to operate out of the box. Unfortunately, as someone mentioned elsewhere, it can be suppressed by lilliputian who consider themselves giants - either at work, in school or at home.
The tragedy for many is that being asked to work by the book has made them docile and incapable of independent thinking. This occurs where you have a "strong" manager who is either past his/her usefulness and hence insist on operating on the basis of what has worked in the past or is just, frankly speaking, incompetent and afraid of changes that might expose him.

Where such occurs, the lateral thinker should explore new avenues to develop and not allow himself to be a subject of continuing suppression.
