words for one who thinks in different and unique ways than others think and has many solutions to a problem . when a person thinks the same problem in many ways and solve the problem in their mind many times and always be one step ahead of others , what is he called.

  • You're asking for too many things at once. Do you want a word for somebody who solves problems faster than other people, who thinks differently than other people, or who comes up with multiple solutions simultaneaously? They may be related, but not necessarily. Please clarify. Also, provide at least one sample sentence with a space in which such a word can be put. Commented Jun 26, 2018 at 5:27
