25 Super Smart Prodigies Who Have Trouble Doing Everyday Things
Often times really, exceptionally good at one specific cognitive skill (like math or music), prodigies are not always very functional in society and might not even be able to tie their own shoes. These are 25 super smart prodigies who have trouble doing everyday things.
20. RÃ¼diger Gamm
His insane math skills didn’t develop until his twenties so he is also slightly more functional than most of the people on this list and as a bonus he can speak backwards fluently.
15. Matt Savage
Another musical wunderkind, Matt never received any classical training but he is the only child to ever sign a contract with BÃ¶sendorfer pianos.
10. Jason Padgett
Another savant that acquired his abilities after being struck in the head, Jason has supposedly come up with an accurate visual explanation for e=mc2.
5. Gilles Trehin
As a savant, he learned to draw almost before he could walk. He then began creating society he called “Urville”. Today he has written and drawn numerous books on his fictional society.
