NASA spokesman George Land made a startling statement.
He reported that specialists from the American National
space agency recently conducted an experiment to identify
genius among children. Scientists have developed an innovative test,
allows you to accurately determine the mental potential
preschoolers. The results were literally shocked.

The experiment involved 1600 kids aged 4 to 5
years old. Boys and girls were offered many tasks to solve
which it was necessary to “drop the blinders”, that is, to think outside the box.
The experts were stumped when they saw that
98% of the test subjects successfully completed the tasks. So 1568 of
1600 randomly selected children turned out to be real geniuses. First
Such an incredible figure made people of science doubt their own

good order, but with the kids something incomprehensible is going on for
Then a group of 1600 15-year-olds and
set the same tasks to them. Geniuses among teenagers turned out to be less

because it is convenient (and even only possible) for
teachers who have lost the ability to creative thinking.

to the aforementioned George Land. A NASA employee explains that any
man has two types of thinking, one of which is called
divergent, and the other convergent. And despite any blocks in
