I could not disagree more with this.
There are math programs out there that have proven to close the "bell curve" of performance to a 3% deviation. That means that your lowest and
highest performer are only separated by 3%. You cannot argue with facts of performance.
I believe that they are misattributing cause. You are not born or anything with it. It is more that, as you mature, you develop "thought
transducers". Depending on the environment you grow up in, you may or may not develop solid mathematical logic/thought transducers.
I am a good example of this. In school i struggled with math. In my adult life I have embarked on a career entrenched in mathmatics, while teaching
myself the mathematical systems needed for this work. It isn't that I was born to be poor at math. It is that, as i matured, i developed logic
processes that were contraindicative to math skill. I corrected that problem, and now I am an accountant for a fairly large business.
