How did he manage to do anything with all these defects?
I chose to not do shit for 18 years, i deemed it to be unnecessary. Am i smart senpai?
Did not fail math in school
"Albert Einstein did not fail mathematics in school. Upon seeing a column making this claim, Einstein said "I never failed in mathematics... Before I was fifteen I had mastered differential and integral calculus." Einstein did however fail the entrance exam into the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School on his first attempt in 1895, although he was two years younger than his fellow students at the time and scored exceedingly well in the mathematics and science sections." -Wiki list of common misconceptions
Not really, he was a manufactured philanthropist, probably had a fairly high emotional intelligence. I hear tell his live in girlfriend was the math genius, maybe she didn't want the attention? Also he was friendly with Jesuits. He denied it but he is pictured with the creepy one who hauled Big Bang out of the Vatican archives, they were probably his handlers and why they made him a Jew - they love playing that game. The real authors probably burnt on a stake some centuries ago. History is rewritten everyday.
Don't you realize that psychologists lie all the fucking time and say that <insert famous person> had <insert your mental disorder> without any basis in reality to make you feel good?
i took a pic.
dude was writing on this level at 15!
There is a story about Einstein's first talk at the Institute for Advanced Study. I don't remember where I heard the story, but I think it was in a dinner speech given by John Wheeler at a physics conference.
A colleague suggested that it was time for him to give a lecture on his work. Einstein thought about it for a while and decided that he had some interest results in Tensor Analysis that he would like to present.
As usual, a notice about the lecture was posted on a bulletin board there with his name, the title of his lecture, and the date and time of his lecture.
Some undergraduates saw the notice and spread the word.
On the day of the lecture, the campus was packed with people hoping to hear him speak. It supposedly resembled the day of a Princeton-Harvard football game.
Einstein was led through the crowd, into the building, down the very crowded hallway, and into a very crowded lecture room where he was given a chair to sit in while waiting to be introduced.
While sitting in the chair, Einstein was looking around at the crowd in complete bewilderment and then said, "Never did I dream that in America there were so many people interested in Tensor Analysis".
because half that shit's not true but just made up/passed around to make others feel better about failing/not understanding mathematics. If you've touched GR, you'd realize he was obviously gifted in mathematics but modest about his ability since he focused on application.
A photographer in my family took a picture of him and I managed to snag a shot with my camera.
As far as I know it's the only physical copy and the only digital copy available.
It was very old and showing signs of wear and discoloration.
Just kind of neat to find a one of a kind photo of him considering he disliked having his photo taken.
The only things verifiable on this list:
>Aspergers, since he showed alot of symptoms and his "way of thinking" was kind of autistik.(not meant negatively) So it might not be sure if he really had it but its grated he had certain tendencies.
The last two of this list are pretty acurrate. he always locked himself out and had a complex personality. Also he had various problems in his relationships since his lack of social understanding. Read some books with personal letters by him and other documents,works and speeches. So coming back to your question OP
everyone has their strengths and weaknisses. And especially his autistic tendencies could have been helpfull by changing mankinds understanding of physics. (pls ignore the typos anons)
>you'd realize he was obviously gifted in mathematics
If you have ever touched a graduate math textbook, you'd realize that he was quite bad at it, although better at maths than most physicists.
Leaving those myths aside, although Einstein is an important physicist, he's by far less intelligent that most people think he is - considering how much of a popular icon he is, to be the paradigmatic image of 'smart man' yet not as smart as many geniuses from the past - Aristotle, Newton, Leibniz, Goethe, Kant, Wittgenstein would make a better image as a genius than Einstein.
Why do people even believe this kind of bullshit.
Einstien's teachers thought he was a fucking genius at math and he skipped lectures all the time because he had already taught himself.
I mean yeah the guy was a little eccentric with marrying his cousin and all but still.
>How did he manage to do anything with all these defects?
Defective people look at life from a different perspective because they have a different experience in life. He looked at his work from a new angle, which gave him an advantage in discovering things others had overlooked.
>TFW it was all luck
OP, everyones life has things in it that people will percieve as setbacks but for all we know he was a fuck up because he was always fucking bitches and counting money like a mothafuckin boss genius.
You shouldnt "weigh" peoples lives. Just do what you love and get off einsteins nuts
Thanks for sharing anon that's really neat. My girlfriend is a legitimate photographer and she always says she takes so many pictures of everyone even if they don't like it because one day so one will apericate that the photos exist.
>He deemed it unnecessary.
kek sure pal
>Mother: "My young boy was shy as a child, didnt talk much, but we moved when he was about 4 and made alot of friends"
>plebs: "WOW EINSTEIN DIDNT TALK TILL HE WAS FOUR! SO UNIQUE AND SMART"
How's that computer feel, anon? Or better yet how's that car that you like to drive or your TV and cellphone.
We should be kissing his ass for providing us all with our technological revolution.
Yeah I'm pretty sure the translator made him sound pompous in writing. AFAIK if you translated German raw into English you sound like any other schmuck. This obnoxious wordplay that makes middle schoolers think you're smart isn't likely something Einstein bothered with, knowing that he was relatively bad at language, and wanted to actually be understood.
