Bill as a diligent learner

Bill Gates at an early age became a diligent learner. He read the World Book Encyclopedia series start to finish. His parents encouraged his appetite for reading by paying for any book he wanted. Sternberg (2006) explains that knowledge can help or hinder creativity. One needs to know enough about a field to move forward. It is this predisposition and his unquenching desire to learn that has propelled him into more creative ways of thinking.

“SEATTLE – If you spend time with the Gates family it is most probable that someone will mention the “water incident”. The future software guru was a headstrong 12-year-old and was having a particularly nasty argument with his mother at the dinner table. His father lost his cool and threw a glass of cold water in the boy’s face. The young boy snapped back with something like this: “Hey thanks for the shower!” (Guth, 2009).”
