Re: Thinking outside the box:is it common in adhd?

I think, through a long arduous journey of my own, that the key to thinking outside the box is knowing what the box is. thinking outside typically has nothing to do with communications but problem solving.

in communications, it's usually knowing the context behind the words this, that, those, these, they... typically a lot of T words. I wonder, how many other people with ADHD have had problems with T words.

an example of thinking outside the box is more academic/problem solving, drawing outside the lines if you well.

the 9 Dot Challanage is a really good example of thinking outside of the box.

. . .

. . .

. . .

connect all 9 dots with only using 4 lines. to do so, you must literally think outside the box. it can be done with 3 lines or how you frame the problem, 1 line. (if you blow up the dots, using just periods for the dots in this example).

another example is the 4 tree challenge. I haven't been able to do that one as of yet (gota look online for the instructions)
