Albert Einstein Was A Retard

1) Was Einstein mentally retarded? Yes he went outside during a thunderstorm and flew a kite that had a key attached to it. Source:


2) (1879-1955), physicist. Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany, and grew up in Munich, in a family of independent-minded, nonpracticing Jews. Little is known about his childhood. Because he was slow in learning to speak--he was not fully fluent even at the age of nine--he was at various times thought to be mentally retarded. Some experts have speculated that he was dyslexic. A headmaster once told his father that what Einstein chose as a profession wouldn't matter, because "he'll never make a success at anything." At six he began learning to play the violin and became a gifted amateur violinist, maintaining this skill throughout his life. Source:

3a) Einstein Was a Fat Baby with Large Head. When Albert’s mother, Pauline Einstein gave birth to him, she thought that Einstein’s head was so big and misshapen that he was deformed!

As the back of the head seemed much too big, the family initially considered a monstrosity. The physician, however, was able to calm them down and some weeks later the shape of the head was normal. When Albert’s grandmother saw him for the first time she is reported to have muttered continuously "Much too fat, much too fat!" Contrasting all apprehensions Albert grew and developed normally except that he seemed a bit slow.

3b) Einstein Had Speech Difficulty as a Child.

As a child, Einstein seldom spoke. When he did, he spoke very slowly – indeed, he tried out entire sentences in his head (or muttered them under his breath) until he got them right before he spoke aloud. According to accounts, Einstein did this until he was nine years old. Einstein’s parents were fearful that he was retarded – of course, their fear was completely unfounded!

One interesting anecdote, told by Otto Neugebauer, a historian of science, goes like this:

As he was a late talker, his parents were worried. At last, at the supper table one night, he broke his silence to say, "The soup is too hot." Greatly relieved, his parents asked why he had never said a word before.
Albert replied, "Because up to now everything was in order."

In his book, Thomas Sowell noted that besides Einstein, many brilliant people developed speech relatively late in childhood. He called this condition The Einstein Syndrome.

Einstein was a retard. He didn't know how to speak until he was five or so. He had abhorrent grades in his classes. The only job he could get was one at the PATENT OFFICE.
'Course, later on he was a certain areas. Physics, etc...

Actually, the reports of his poor performance in school and such were greatly exaggerated, and there was no shame in getting a job as a patent office clerk, in fact, it was a good job for a young scientist to have.
Also, the Physics didn't come later, he started studying Physics at 11 years old.

I am 16 and still can't I just get really confused. I am in honer student so yeah. I am not a stupid or anything I just can't get it. 8/23/11
Answerer 1:
Did you know that Albert Einstein could not tie his shoes until he was a teenager? Retard? Oh I think not. Follow the simple instructions below that are used to teach children. What ever works and this is a very simple method. Source(s):

"I simply enjoy giving more than receiving in every respect, do not take myself or the doings of the masses seriously, am not ashamed of my weaknesses and vices, and naturally take things as they come with equanimity and humor.  Many people are like this, and I really cannot understand why I have been made into a kind of idol."  - Albert Einstein, in Einstein, a Life by Denis Brian, p. 389.


So, what's so bad about being retarded, I'm not offended by the label are you? - jim
