They enjoy experimentation and discovery projects with indefinite outcomes. Intellectual Lateral Thinkers get really excited about unusual and different concepts and ideas. 

Having a pure intellect and being someone who thinks differently is an incredible life skill. Intellectual Lateral Thinkers are open-minded, exciting and flexible. They need to learn perseverance, as they can sometimes want change just for the excitement and the sake of change!

They understand the importance of defining the problem, of finding unique solutions and love to find new uses for existing solutions. They are a ‘why not’ kind of person who is mentally quick and thrives on collaboration.

Intellectual Lateral Thinkers need to engage this part of themselves with activities that are creative. Anything that requires problem/solution thinking will help them exercise this natural gift.


Intellectual Lateral Thinkers are enthusiastic and excited about life and very talkative. Although it can be sometimes tiring for others, this life skill can be charming and makes them a very interesting friend and conversationalist. 

Intellectual Lateral Thinkers love to debate, and it can sometimes be difficult for them not to seem argumentative. They arenā€™t looking for a fight. They just love to take a different point of view and will learn over the course of their life, how to do this in a constructive way.
