Description

A study conducted by Jan van den Ende is referenced as it studies insiders, outsiders, and scientific success. One might think the science insiders win science contests, since they have the knowledge and background to solve difficult scientific problems, but they can be inflexible. Outsiders should bone up on the problem they're trying to solve, while insiders benefit from thinking outside the box.
