It has been proven now that Albert Einstein was smarter than others of his time and also than most humans to have ever lived and those still living because he used more of his brain than what people usually do. Scientists have inferred, after studying his brain post his death that he used at least 20% and it could be as much as 30%, more of his brain than what humans normally do. While his using more of his grey matter had not resulted due to his personality, yet his personality was certainly influenced or even dictated to a great degree because of his using more of his brain.
Albert Einstein had a restless personality, although he may appear to be very calm and wise on some images that have become popular over the years. He was a mischievous person and that was primarily because of his curiosity. He was phenomenally curious, very different from most people in the world; those who lived then, before him or now. His curiosity drove him or compelled him to get to the bottom of things, to understand everything around him and this lead to what others termed as mischief.
Albert Einstein was a playful man indeed and some of his mischief may have been intended or intentional. His playfulness is displayed when one studies that Albert Einstein loved playing the violin but instead of practicing he preferred to perform. Any performer with a tinge or a lot of playfulness would hate practice. It is a behavior or tendency that many people in the world working in different fields and of different ages share. There are sportspersons who don’t want to head to the training sessions every day and yet they want to get to the big stage and perform in front of a live audience. Talented people or those who are more intelligent than a normal human tend to have apathy for repetitive tasks or what can be best described as mundane.
Albert Einstein had a very pleasant personality. He was easy to mingle with and his welcoming outreach to the world and people around him made him quite popular a personality in his times. He was also a very humble man. It was his humility and accessibility that made everyone comfortable with him, from world leaders to noble laureates of his era, from the common man he spoke to on campus to the students who were fortunate enough.
