Neil deGrasse Tyson on how to think outside the boxiGen.Live
Are you a good problem solver? If presented with a problem, are you the type of person who can evaluate a situation and come up with a solution, or are you the type of person that needs to know the answer in order to fix a problem?
There is a big difference in knowing the right answer and figuring out the right answer. Knowing the right answer, just requires a Google search or a textbook or doing a little homework.
