Reading with Insight

Question:- 1. What do you understand of Einstein’s nature from his conversations with his history teacher, his mathematics teacher and the head teacher?

Answer:- Einstein’s behavior appeared to be extremely unruly. He didn’t believe in the then prevailing educational system. His has spontaneous nature . Memorizing facts and dates was a waste of time for him. Ideas attracted him more than facts because of which once he had a heated argument on education with his history teacher. He was so restless and unconcerned about the necessity of going to school that he didn’t mind skipping it entirely. We learn from his interaction with the Maths teacher that he was a student who was truly interested in mathematics, since it was the only subject in which he paid close attention and never wasted time.  He wasn’t open and outright in front of his Mathematics teacher. His attitude had softened in front of his teacher, showing his respect and obedience for elders. When he faces the headmaster afterwards, he is defensive at first then carefree by the end of the conversation.

 

Question:- 2. The school system often curbs individual talents. Discuss.

Answer:- Nowadays, school is all about learning a bunch of information and then spewing them out on a test or exam. There is no learning required; just memorising is required. Important lessons should be imparted to students. The grading method is also flawed. What criteria do you use to evaluate something’s creativity? You can’t do it. “Everyone is a genius,” Albert Einstein once observed, “but if you measure a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life thinking it is stupid.”

 

Question:- 3. How do you distinguish between information gathering and insight formation?

Answer:- The term “information gathering” refers to the process of acquiring data and facts. It refers to information obtained or received through communication about certain events or circumstances. Insight formation, on the other hand, refers to one’s view of things as a result of his in-depth knowledge of a subject. The ability to identify the real essence of a situation is referred to as insight. As a result, it may vary from person to person, based on each individual’s views and notions.
