3 Albert Einstein Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science.

Its even more surprising that he hated school. Somewhat understandable, considering you don't get to learn what you really want for the most part.

He was a good student [never failed math], with an excellent talent for physics when young, but was far from a child prodigy. Was not really recognized for his knowledge until his late 20's, and did not truly contribute to the world's knowledge until his early 30's.

Excuse me this is the creator of this list this item is very old so ignore this item I have a very illusional mindset back then of me being "cured" from autism but months later after this list or weeks I admit that I'm an aspie so please visitors ignore that comment...

He's being cured from autism and so as I he was cured at age 3 I was cured at age 8.

Please ignore last comment this person does not understand what autism is
