Those characteristics are:
Contrarian – Every invention challenges and ultimately disrupts the status quo in society. For example, twenty five years ago every household had a landline – a phone attached to the wall. The mobile phone was invented. Today 80% of the population owns a mobile phone. The people who create these inventions are the rule breakers.
Creativity – The IBM Survey 2010 interviewed 1500 CEOs across 66 countries who stated the 21st Century highest demand leadership skill is creativity. Creativity is the ability to imagine new ideas. Students who fabricate and exaggerate stories are creative. Students who love to play and joke are creative.
Tenacity with High willingness to succeed - Determined to complete whatever task they embark upon even if they will face negative consequences.
Observer of the hidden obvious – Students notice details others miss. Often they communicate their little details by gossiping and joking.
Children, like the middle schoolers who made the bus monitor cry in Greece NY, have the very same characteristics as inventors, albeit wild and unbridled. INVENTION ADVENTURE BOOTCAMP is set to domesticate that wild unbridled behavior and turn bratty disrespectful teens/ pre-teens into cultured respectful young people.
If these teens/ pre-teens have the skills to dodge disaster in Detroit – the city of the living dead, then they certainly can prosper amongst the living and cultured. Perhaps we will develop a few mad scientists here in Zombie World to create viable prosperous invention and innovation oriented companies to expand jobs and culture.
