I have a theory:

Intelligence is inherited on down from your family tree's past anxieties, and how your family tree handled their past anxieties

A mathematician became good at math through how his past family tree handled problems, insecurities, etc

A musician became talented with an instrument through how her past family tree handled problems, insecurities, etc

Temperament comes into place as well, and temperament may influence your innate intelligence - certainly your decision making
>>
>>10302882
Someone who handles a problem well is someone who can think without being nervous during the problem solving

aka - one that can conquer & suppress anxiety when it arises


Someone who inherited that level headed thinking likely have inherited a higher intellect

That's my theory. I don't think it exists yet within mainstream critical thinking

>>10302882
Although this is 4chan, I mean no offense my reply. Your post suggests that you know little about how things work. Both math and music is about 90% practice. Source: I am a (physicist turned) mathematician and play two musical instruments decently. And this is not due to my genes or other bullshit, this is because I studied hard and I traded many things (such as social connections) for pursuing my interests.

There's actually an uncanny correlation between having the 'tism and being 'racist'.

B. Fischer, J. Watson, Einstein, Lovecraft, etc. and the most popular promoters of race realism online are people like Ryan Faulk. I think something about being immune to social pressure allows autists to just be who they are naturally.

ITT: discuss engineering, engineering careers, and whatever engineering projects you're working on
___

>Should I go into engineering?
Well, it depends on what reasons you have for considering an engineering subfield.

GOOD reasons:
>I am looking for a challenge
>I already have lots of connections to industry
>I have a good support network that will help me during school/while finding a job

BAD reasons:
>I have delusions about becoming the next Elon Musk ("I want to change the world!")
>I want a high paying job
>I want a low stress work environment
___

>How do I get into R&D?
Generally speaking, you will need at least a master's degree if you want to do actual engineering. Though tread carefully: you can just as easily educate yourself out of a job by becoming overqualified. Make sure you have appropriate industry connections and experience before pursuing grad school.

Because if you're dealing with abstract concepts and mathematical notation you don't want to burn your mental energy in understanding the book's writing style as well as the concepts it's supposed to be explaining.

Okay, so you want to filter in order to agglutinate divine matchings and exclude certain energies/vibrations.

You and every other expresser of narrative kind of does the same thing with less. Unless you only want to hit the people that hit enough points thus signalling to you that you're not alone or have another potential to include/invite/have awesome sex with.

Or is this a destruction upon observation style memetic.

Can anyone recommend any books or reference circuitry books to get started with design? I'm very motivated to leave EE testing and go into Design, I just need a starting point.

I'm currently working through Power Electronics on Coursera but I get frustrated at the lack of guidance and resources to do the homework. The 'Mentors' are especially aweful and nudging you in the right direction and often ignore or claim answering you would be cheating.

read thru Analysis and Design of Analog Integrated Circuits by gray and meyer.

once ur done, pat urself on the back. uve now read thru the circuits bible, which contains mostly outdated stuff that people dont really use anymore.

then switch to CS because entry level analog/digital design jobs require PhD and 10 years of experience.

That same case also forbids this who score too low from getting hired though. The police were not asked to stop testing for general intelligence. They still test for general intelligence to this day, and they still refuse to hire people who score too low.
It has nothing to do with them being "too smart" as opposed to "too stupid". It has everything to do with their 50 year employment records proving that hiring smart cops is a waste of public resources.
