: ) I understand this more.A good post.
We draw conclusions- off the hat.
Impression (how things appear to us) is revered like science.
This is why many children appear stupid in the classroom, although they are not.
A teacher follows her own preference and she creates an atmosphere that suits her preference.
You can see this thing taking place also in the social context.
It can be very annoying to the student or to the conversation partner.
Also, you undeservedly get lousy grades.
It goes both ways, of course.
They say the N always shine in the academia. It is often the other way around.
Einstein hard a hard time during the elementary school and later, in the college.
He got mediocre grades. His dissertation work was ill received.
He had a low job in a patent office.
A magazine found him later.
What if the editor-in-chief of the magazine had not been of the type of Albert?
It might well be the name Einstein would say us nothing today.
Or the place names Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Mendel was a humbly monk. He wrote to Darwin but Darwin did not reply.
He was only accidentally found later.
What about Bach? He walked an entire day, in the rain, to see Haendel.
Haendel did not receive him. Who is Bach?
We despise the paupers in the street. We know nothing about them.
Impression is not everything.
