    Says who? What are these "more important things" and who makes them the epitome of the ideal and normal childhood?
    o.o

    Good grief, woman. Did you just ask what's more important than maths? All myself and the person I quoted are suggesting is that it's a bit unnerving when you hear stories of kids like that, because their life will be full of logic and science, they never even get to have a childhood. As in, that kid will never think like a child. Like I said; no imagination, innocence, ignorance and dreams. Obviously he's still very lucky and special, though.

    Another year another kid with an "IQ higher than Einstein" which I've always found a curious claim since Einstein as far as I'm aware never took an IQ test.

    Your IQ means nothing, your achievements do. While this kid has done nothing to be compared to Einstein he has certainly achieved a lot at such a young age. Let's all hope he carries on his work and doesn't get sucked into making unsolvable equations for bankers to "create" 5 trillion dollars out of thin air or end up working on a way to prolong an erection for 12 hours, we've got far too many intelligent people wasting their time on that crap already.

    So what do you consider good achievements then?

    this concept of improving your IQ doesn't really exist
    IQ is literally raw intelligence that you are born with, environmental factors may have a tiny effect but not more than 5 points or so

    IQ is the score you achieve on an IQ test, for which you can train and improve, if only marginally.

    If a person revised all similar questions on an IQ test before sitting the test, and scored 50 above, his IQ would thus be improved.

    The score you are likely to achieve on an IQ is as much environmental as it is genetic- by environmental I refer to the environment during formative years of early childhood. It is ridiculous to see you positing that environment accounts for 5 points or less on an IQ test

    oh, by environmental factors I meant things like studying or a better diet which people consciously do to try and improve IQ, obviously if the child is malnourished / beaten or whatever as a baby, bad stuff will happen, but I think the fact that your genes determine your intelligence still stands

    I only took one thing away from that story and that video.


    American Math notation sucks.
    Complaining about Americanisms and calling maths math? I despair...

    Actually, both are 'correct' in the UK, whereas in the US, saying Maths is like saying Englishs.

    But thanks for playing.

    Good is a subjective term and I consider all achievements as good for the person who achieved them, achieving something is always preferable to achieving nothing.

    I would kill for a 1/4 of his brain :sigh:
    You probably already have much more than this. Think about it: Aspergers allows him to focus on physics an mathematics solely. He thinks about hardly anything else. A lot of it is determination and focus. Einstein himself said that he did not feel that he was much more intelligent than his peers. He was simply more focused. Obviously it was impossible for him to say this for certain: he couldn't see how others think, but focus likely had a large part in it.
    This is why all the greatest 'genius'...s are thought to have been aspergic/ autistic. Although another reason is partly due to many aspergics being able to think very creatively => allows for multiple interpretations of a given scenario/ look at things from a different angle/ Abstract thought.

    But still, the point is:you're not that different... probably...
