Question Study Shows Good With Math Means Bad With People


+--------------------------------------------------------------------+
|[0]Sylentmode writes "A recent study by Brookings Institution's Brown
Center shows that students who are [1]good with math are less likely to
be happy, and are likely to have low confidence. From the article "In
essence, happiness is overrated" says study author Tom Loveless. I
wonder
if Loveless is just a nickname, because he is so good with math."

What makes many mathematicians misfits for normal society?

I can name quite a few in this forum itself!

Besides a well 'wired' brain I think that this is simply an ego problem.

Do you have any experiences with math prodigies, math genius's, or simply eccentric well qualified math'cians you can relate on?

Or have you read of such people well documented in the history of maths?

Do they have a prominent place in the community or should we let them be in their Ivory towers?

I look forward to your comments and personal (if any!) experiences in this matter and your opinions.

Mally
