Question:

A truck gets stuck under a bridge. Several low trucks are unable to pull it out. At last a little boy walks up and asks the adults trying to free the truck why they haven't let the air out of the truck's tires. What was their oversight due to?

Nancy P.
Answer:

The oversight of the adults was due to the concept of Fixation. In this case, the adults became so focused on the problem in front of them that they were unable to adopt a new perspective that would allow them to search for alternative solutions.
