D o you need to go to the university to become smart? In most cases yes, the more education you get the better the chances are that your IQ will be high. But this has not been the case for a few of the smartest people to have ever graced our planet. Formal education doesn’t guarantee good wits. Albert Einstein, one of the smartest man in the science field, who created all sorts of formulas, he left school at 15 years old because his teacher called him “retarded”. One of the most famous electricians, Thomas Edison dropped school at 8. 50% of North America’s people who have the Genius level IQ never graduated from high school.
So even a standard education isn’t required to be really smart. Some might argue that a really select few have been able to done that and not the majority, which is actually true.
