Hmm...not sure the "childlike" part of the assumption is necessarily true. Some of the best scientists were downright asses. In fact, maybe this is a common trait among the best scientists, at least in physics.

Einstein and Feynman only spoke their first words at 3 years of age. However, it is much too late for any of us to take that route. :cry:

I don't know about famous scientists, but there is an interesting controversy, that Hitler's anti-semitism dates back to his interactions with schoolboy Wittgenstein...
