Who are the outliers of the world?

   The person that I believe is an outlier, is Albert Einstein. I believe he is an outlier because he has accomplish  a lot of great thing in his life, also he is still remembered today. He has helped change the scientific world with his theories and experiments. He developed the general theory of  relativity, which is one of the two pillars of modern physics. He w\has also won the Nobel Peace Prize in Physics. Those where some of his achievements, now on to why he is an outlier.

    He was born March 14, 1879, in Germany. His family were non-observant Jews, and he went to Catholic School for three year from the age of five to the age of eight. After this he received an advanced primary and secondary school education, I believe that mean Elementary school and Middle school. Also, though he excelled greatly in school, some people say that Albert Einstein was dyslexic. Einsteins father once showed him a compass and he was fascinated by the fact the needle moved despite the fact that nothing was their to move it. So through this fascination, he learned that we was good a math. Another thing that contributed to Einstein being and amazing scientist is a poor polish Medical student that was introduced to Einsteins family when he was ten. Every week fro five years when the Medical student would come to visit he wold give Einstein popular books on science, mathematical texts and philosophical writings. When his father company failed his family moved to Italy. He stayed back at Munich where he was going to finish his studies. He father wanted him to go in to the electrical work field, like himself, but Einstein had problems with the school. So he left and later he wrote how the spirit of learning and creative thought were lost in strict rote learning. This is exactly what everyone in GT 1 believes as well, so you know that he understand us! At a young adult he published his first paper about his theory relativism. This put him out there as scientist, and later resulted in him being asked by President Roosevelt to work on a project know known as the Manhattan Project. He later worked with another Scientist, to write about why using nuclear weapons are very dangerous. After that he spent his time teaching at the Princeton University until he died after refusing to go to the doctors when he was ill. He said that he did not need to because when his time came to leave he would leave, he said that he did not want to prolong something that had to be done anyway. Also, he said that we had done what he needed to do in this world, and that he was ready to go.

    That is why I believe Albert Einstein is an outlier, he many great opportunities that lead him to become a great figure in Science.

  1. Taher: you needed to include your sources and also, don't forget to proofread before publishing. Also, you were supposed to include Dr. Sternberg's Triarchic Theory of Intelligence.
