Albert Einstein – Reckoned as the most intelligent person

Albert Einstein is a name of a person who proved himself to be a genius.  Let’s see why Albert Einstein is still a synonym for intelligence!

Even after almost 62 years of his death, people proclaim him as one of the most genius people alive on earth. The great mathematical physicist gave a new path to the field and indeed made remarkable achievements. People could not believe that a person could be such a genius and thereby his brain is still preserved.

Who is Albert Einstein? Early years of Albert Einstein!

Einstein was born to an ordinary family in Württemberg, Germany, on March 14, 1879. He, however, had his schooling at Luitpold Gymnasium, Munich. He failed his entrance exam for college yet excelled at Mathematics, thereby he was sent to Aarau, Switzerland to study. He then wanted to be trained in teaching physics and mathematics and went to the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich.

Albert Einstein and the story of his youth!

During his youth, he had difficulty in speech and was even regarded as a mentally handicapped person. His teachers were always stressed to see him present at school.

He had his diploma and Swiss citizenship by 1901, yet he was unable to find a reasonable job and landed as a technical assistant at the Swiss Patent Office.  He completed his doctor’s degree in 1905.

By the age of 22, the only jobs he had was that of being a private tutor and technical assistant. However, he never let his hopes down and continued to work.

The wonders by Albert Einstein!

By 1908, he had done some amazing work in his spare time and was hired at Privatdozent in Berne.  These amazing works included the Quantum theory of light, the existence of atoms, the special theory of relativity, and the famous equation E=m(c^2).

When his work and intelligence got recognition, his story of success advanced. He held the post of professor extraordinary at Zurich, then assumed the post of Professor of Theoretical Physics at Prague. He returned to Zurich to get appointed as a Professor of Theoretical Physics. Later he became the Director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Physical Institute and a Professor at the University of Berlin.

He was granted German citizenship yet he stepped back on it to attain US citizenship and become a Professor of Theoretical Physics at Princeton.

He was an active member in the World Government Movement and looking at his intellect, the State of Israel offered him the state presidency during World War 1 which he declined and instead worked with Dr. Chaim Weizmann to establish a University in Jerusalem which was named the Hebrew University.

In 1922 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for discovering the Photoelectric effect.

Albert Einstein and World War 2

He was a social person as well and protested against the wars. Einstein and Gandhi protested against compulsory military services. He went back to the US when World War 2 began and urged President Roosevelt to start research on nuclear. Later, he regretted this because he was only frightened by the fact the Nazis would hold a destructive weapon. Yet they were unable to build an atomic bomb and the bomb thus built targeted the innocents of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

He was a genius person who was first rejected by the world. But once you have belief in yourself and the ability to tackle difficult times, achievements are always on your way. Einstein kept to his passion even after his failing marriage!

Death of Albert Einstien

Albert Einstien died on April 18, 1955. He died as his blood vessels bursts. He was in critical condition and was asked if wanted to go for surgery. Yet he refused and told his friends that it is his time to go, he does not want to live an artificial life which is tasteless. I have made my contribution, now it’s time for me to leave!
