Good thread. Great quotes.
I believe Einstein was an average dude. That just was really bored and did a lot of common sense thinking and questioned things a lot.
Two common myths being told in this thread are:
#1 ) Einstein had Asperger's. INCONCLUSIVE (myth/speculation)
It was merely speculation that he may have had a MILD case. However never PROVEN. So please don't spread these rumors as facts. They are speculations
please present them in that Context!! You are being misleading.
#2 ) Einstein had an IQ of 160. INCONCLUSIVE (misunderstanding)
IQ tests are commonly argued by many researchers to be inadequate at best, and often times do not gauge many facets of intellect that should be
measured, while other aspects are measured in inaccurate or inconclusive manners.
Thus a pragmatic approach would be to throw all IQ tests and their scoring systems in the trash, and attempt to create a much more simplistic
measuring system that takes account for many overlooked aspects of prior testing methods.
I really think the odds are that Einstein was a average guy most likely.
This cult of personality stuff gets way out of hand
