Have you ever taken the time to consider to yourself, how little you truly do know?
I mean, you think you know something, so you think your at least well versed in the subject.

But when you start looking deeper into the subject matter you soon realize how little you do know. And when you look into the hidden concepts that we take for granted, you truly begin to appreciate how much goes into everything we do.

Head to: brilliant.org

A site for people like myself, who think we're smart and know a lot about math, calculus, physics, engineering, even logic.

But when you do your first quiz, you soon realize, things get deep.

My first quiz was on the physics of how a refrigerator works.
I figured, thermodynamics, no problem, okay I got this.
Did the quiz being a jackass, briefly looking over the questions because I'm a know it all.
Finished the quiz, BOOM- 2 answers correct.

Went back and reread each question, took my time to consider the wording - because they try to trip you up.
And still got 1 question wrong.

This site has quizzes on every concept you can think of.

If you think your smart goto brilliant.org
Do the intro course quizzes.
They are free.
But if your like me, you will soon be coughing up the $120 for the year membership to access the entire course flow.

A word of advice, READ the question. Don't just glance over it.

I choose hobbyist, I´m intrigued what topics they have there. Should be all over the place


Alright, let´s do complex numbers, I seldom need them but everytime I do, I need to lookup stuff. Let´s fix that.

Just make stuff up. It's not like you're dealing with real numbers anyway.

Ya the crappy thing is, you only get the intro to the course for free. But there's a lot of courses there and new stuff always added.
so lots of free stuff to play around in

Is anyone brilliant if they pay $120 to learn things and take quizzes when they could Google literally any of it for free?

🤔🤔🤔

I'm smart enough not to join websites I don't have to.

But it´s not that color- and beautiful!

I have to say the site looks neat. It takes time to make such sites and fill them with content so I generally have no problem if they want to earn some money. ATS basically does the same but you/we create the content so...

But I would not pay money for that. Before that, I´d rather take a course, not that comfortable but more input I guess.

Yes! Khan Academy, Coursera, etc. There are so many places to take university level courses for free.

This site challenges my intellect.

You can take that statement both ways.

Only the people raking in $120.00 a pop. What is knowledge but regurgitated information. Real knowledge comes when you go further, then you become the teacher rather than the student.
