Re: High Achievers, Gifted Learners, or Creative Thinkers

So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

That was ole pappym's favorite quote.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

It was not. This is pappym's favorite quote:

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'

Re: High Achievers, Gifted Learners, or Creative Thinkers

I'm definitely a creative thinker. Because of it I can annoy many people very easily. I'm partially a gifted learner. I'm definitely not a high achiever.
