Telepathy is a skill that can be developed from anyone.

But people that already have the skill are most likely from 5-10%.

20% in my opinion is a high figure.

But anyone can develop the skill.

Does the world only have a few great thinkers capable of thinking out of the box?

Question by Vivianna: Does the world only have a few great thinkers capable of thinking out of the box?
It seems like only a handful of people are the ones that make all the great discoveries in the world that we all benifit from. But everyone else are just, users, yes men, or nay sayers. Why aren’t there more people like Tesla that are capable of thinking outside the box? Where have all the great thinkers gone? Why don’t we promote our best thinkers? Why do people that take credit for other people’s work get promoted over the people that have the great ideas?

Best answer:

Answer by Charles C
there are more but they just aren’t in the spot light

Intelligence
Image by Will Lion
“Broadcast television is an example of a medium in which all the intelligence is at the point of origin. Instead of thinking of the next evolutionary step of television as increased resolution, better colour, or more programs, think of it as a change in the distribution of intelligence – or, more precisely, the movement of some intelligence from the transmitter to the receiver”
