Because intelligence is how our minds gather and use information, consider:
Vertical thinking is when we solve problems logically, like deciding to have more money by working longer and harder.
Lateral thinking finds novel solutions to straightforward problems. For wanting more money, a lateral approach could start with deciding why a bigger bank account is desired. Perhaps a fun, satisfying life can be enjoyed without extra jobs.
