Our capacity to learn (children vs adults)

May 2, 2014

Today at work, my program manager (still working as a telecom analyst) came to me and presented me a simple problem to solve that was written on an index cardImage.  He starts the conversation with the statement that children have a greater capacity to solve and simplify problems than adults.  As adults we tend to compartmentalize and over analyze.  I worked on it for about ten minutes and presented my first answer.  It was wrong.  After he wrote it again on his white board, I got it.  I thought it was a great learning example and though I would share.  I’d love to see your response.

What’s the next line?
