The Secret Behind Einstein's Genius

WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard


Einstein was perhaps one of the world's most famous geniuses. His face is posted all over the world in the form of pictures in textbooks and as photos on posters, among other things. He serves as the inspiration for aspiring scholars who want to be the next greatest scientist of the world.

So, what was the secret behind Einstein's genius? Was there one?

Einstein wasn't really a straight-A student when he was younger, which would leave many to think his genius was a hoax. Instead, he was always thinking about things completely differently than the average mind, so he had a hard time conforming to the inferior minds around him.

Einstein often found himself in deep trances of thought at the most random times. His imagination powered his thought process, and it was through this process that he developed the theory of general relativity.

Einstein always applauded highly-imaginative minds, because imagination is something that can help us to propel our knowledge beyond what we already know. So the next time you get stuck in a bout of day-dreaming, don't knock yourself out of it; let your mind continue to go wild.
