Many people think that complex thinkers at the peak of their field become that way after years of accrued mastery or development of expertise, but complex thinkers, or thinkers who may succeed in complex reasoning tasks and environments are often very different from experts who have mastered (whether through skill, or knowledge, or both) finite intellectual or artistic domains.
Complex thinkers tend to be transdisciplinary – and may be so from the get-go (i.e. childhood). The reason for this may be that their thinking is more pattern-related and iterative rather than logically related in a casual chain.”
