    I agree with you about the "rocking way" but from my POV problem solving is more like an art, something you cannot teach. You identify that as a "natural ability", the hard thing is helping people in understanding where to start.
    Problem solving is like moving into "discomfort zone", you learn a lot even if you cannot solve the issue; you learn a lot about the process!
    IMHO It's the process itself that defines you as a problem solver not what you know.
    Funny things happen when people understand that you're a problem solver, they start submitting you even harder (funnier) problems and sometimes they simply go for you with problems they know the answer just to challenge you.
    So, go out, and start solving problems!
    my 3 cents
