Basically, a blog post about my experience showing while intelligence is important, it pales in the face of infinite knowledge.

]]>*[Corrected, thanks – T.]*

People want to go with the easy way. Nobody wants to work hard. Then they say “our intelligence is not enough to be a mathematician”. in fact they are deceiving themselves. No need to be a genius to be a mathematician. Even genius, crazy mathematicians table already wrong from the beginning. The biography of a mathematician is overrated. to become a mathematician; it is necessary to ask question, hard work and research. society has the wrong idea about mathematics. for example, some people think that even the great mathematician born genius. but this is bullshit. Thank you. *and sorry for my bad english*

]]>Are you familiar with the Study of Mathematically Precocious Youth? It’s one of various pieces of evidence that seems to suggest that intelligence measured by standardized tests does predict mathematical performance, and that this doesn’t hit diminishing returns. I was wondering if you had data to back up the argument that there’s a certain ability threshold beyond which talent stops being important.
