There’s a 50% chance and I like those odds!
Don't feel too bad about feeling humbled by physics; it goes against all intuition. My professor had us answer physics questions throughout his lectures to apply each principle or to test our intuition before learning a principle, and we'd answer with our handheld clickers. We would usually be more wrong that right as a group, and he said a couple of times that he's asked the same questions to a room full of professional physists and most of them chose the wrong answers too. Physics is quite a mind fuck.I use to think i was above average.Wasnt until i took physics which made me realise i wasnt that smart. Really made me reevaluate myself.I honestly think it lead to me getting better grades at school because now I knew i wasnt those guys who could not study and get an A in the class.I actually needed to study and manage my time .So overall it was a positive realization.
Technically this could be true as long as we choose to include all outliers in our calculation of the average. If the bottom 10% were extremely stupid and the top 90% were all roughly equal in intelligence. For example the average of the numbers 1, 99, 99, 99, 99, 99, 99, 99, 99, 99 is 89.2, which 9 of the 10 numbers are higher than.
That's a bit more self-deprecating than modest
Pls post receipts.
By that definition I’ll get my dunce’s caonand stand in the cornerPlease don’t mention your fabulous career programming robots when your communication skills with humanity are low and you ignore basic human wellness. You can be a teacher or a doctor or lawyer or engineer and be an idiot—your skill set is just specialized.
True Intelligence is the cumulation of mental wellness and life skills with the pursuit of continued education as an adult.
I’d say that like anyone, there are subjects that I excel at and ones that need extra attention. I’m self-aware and have strong communication and interpersonal skills. So wherever that places me I’m fine with it.
Try not to let the imposter syndrome get to you my dude, it'll be okay.
