Are You an Inventor?

I was once asked in a job interview if I was an inventor. I said that any competent engineer can "invent" something new but it was only those new things that solved a significant problem for someone that anyone remembers. PMs are experts in market problems and they collaborate with engineering to create inventions that matter.
