Remember your days as a kid trying hard to solve Maths problems? You had this creativity to find a different way (which was more often than not shunned) of solving the problem.
The current scenario, irrespective of which field you are in, demands you to bring this same quality to the table. And these days, this quality is not only being acknowledged but is also being rewarded.
If you are wondering ‘why,’ this quote should answer it “I was born intelligent until ‘education’ ruined me.”
Side Note: Don’t be surprised if you creativity starts failing you this time around.
