  3. Vladimir reminded me) At school, I had problems with grammar, reading and retelling, in general, with almost everything (which can still be traced). And so I wasn't the best student in the class. But one day in math class, the teacher scolded the class that no one knows anything, that everyone made a lot of mistakes, that she gave everyone two's. And then, all of a sudden, my name was called, which I hadn't expected to hear from the back of the classroom at all. And she was saying that I was the only one in the class who got an A. She called me to pick up her notebook, and at that moment, as I walked from the far corner of the classroom to the teacher and back, I felt that I was smart)

A nearby salesman with many years of experience dropped his jaw for a moment.

    During your studies: At school, in a geometry lesson, completely unaware of the topic, I learned the Pythagorean theorem with a proof to the comma with pictures in 3 minutes. On the exam, I absolutely did not know the answer on the subject of Chain Theory, but I came to it with a logical conclusion with mathematical justification.

    In combat: when you beat 3 guys at the same time. I didn't really get hurt in the fight with 12, except for a couple of bruises on my sides.

  9. In kindergarten, I was given a task to draw shapes in a line(I still remember which ones), and while everyone else was drawing the whole shape, I broke it down into its components and drew first the entire line of the check mark, then the entire line of the stick… I've never been so proud of myself as I was when I was praised for being smart

And everyone started applauding me, even the director. Then I really felt like myself…. more literate than smart.

  11. When there were pairs in higher mathematics at the university. At school, I was lucky to have a teacher in algebra and geometry, she taught like a God. They passed not only what is written in the textbook, but what is usually given already at the university. She knew how to interest, such talented teachers need to look for.

    So, when I came to the first couple of classes at the university, I realized that I had nothing to do there. All that they gave me I have already passed in school:)

We ate in the courtyard, surrounded by lush, low, richly blooming acacias. And then one fine morning there was a real invasion of bees, a whole swarm of acacia trees, so that you couldn't even go to the tables. Adults were discouraged by such an event and didn't know what to do, but they didn't know that there was a specialist among them who spent most of his free time watching Discovery Channel.

  18. at work. When I did something not ordinary, which actually did not do before, but I understand that everything will work out.

  19. When the algebra teacher, once again brought up by my disgusting behavior, gave out that I was the smartest person in school according to the results of some tests and only my character prevents me from squeezing out the maximum of my abilities. I studied perfectly, then fell to good because of conflicts with some teachers, but by the 11th grade I became a three-year student and a truant because I was afraid of my new classmates.

    And so I come to an institute where people are lazier and dumber than I am, and my school doesn't seem like such a bottom to me anymore. Sensing the attitude of the others to my studies, I started to play matan out of principle and scored 100 points on it in the first semester. I felt like a superintelligent.

    And by the way, I'm transferring from the institute with: Where it will be more difficult, but more useful.

  21. Recently, a friend came to Moscow, and when choosing where to stay, she told me a couple of streets where hostels are located.

  22. Once, in the eighth grade, I was the only one in the class who wrote an A-grade geometry test. The others didn't even get fours. I remember having an epiphany 10 minutes before the end of the lesson. I still remember with satisfaction the feeling when the teacher said that I have 5.

  23. In the 5-7 seventh grade, the story somehow did not attract, but at 8 I was carried away by it excitedly. And so, grading, and I have one of the class 5 for a quarter. I felt like the smartest among these “incompetents”.

  24. I was traveling on the Novorossiysk-Perm train.

  26. My childhood was spent in a boarding school. A teenager without an attentive, friendly attitude from adults / parents always grows up careless, if there are no those who wisely guide. So I wasn't very diligent with the wind in my head. And when the boys nearby bullied in small ways, I was there and became infected by their example. I remember a friend of mine wrote some obscene but obscene poems, and we sang them together loudly, without brakes, coolly to the music (I remember today). It was fun. And the young new teacher, hearing my voice in the choir from the room, was horrified and, as I guess, ran to the director, demanding that “this bandit “(that is, me) almost be put in prison.

    Fortunately, the director was wiser and realized that young people have problems with good manners, that the educational work in the boarding school simply needs to be improved. Apparently, they discussed it with more experienced people than that. They probably also talked about my candidacy, and there were some teachers who said that the boy was quite good, reads a lot, loves books, knows whole chapters of Eugene Onegin by heart (indeed, I had a very good memory for poems).

    And so they instructed a very good literature teacher to organize it in such a way as to show that children know how to use a word that is not only bad. We just need to teach them, educate them.

    A high school student comes up to me one day and says: let's put on a play. And gives my text. It was an excerpt from Gogol's “Marriage”, the final scene. My classmate Leshka (the one who wrote obscene poems) will play Kochkareva, seventh-grader Ira Azernikova will play Agafya Tikhonovna, and I will play Podkolesina. I started learning the text. And there is a lot of it, it is also prose. But I (and they) learned everything, then even rehearsed it once.

    The day of the show has arrived.

    In the boarding school's big room on Sunday, all the children gathered, the director, the teachers, and this teacher Nelly Naumovna Naumova came.

    We pulled the covers between the walls like a curtain. And they played the whole scene.

    I remember the excitement, the applause. I remember their faces-the audience. And a sense of pride in yourself.

  27. when in the seventh grade there was some kind of math Olympiad, and after it contests and games. At one of the games, I came across a small logical problem that for some reason no one could solve, neither the schoolchildren participating in the Olympiad, nor the university students who helped conduct the Olympiad and the games. The moment I said the answer, I felt smart.

  28. It was a high school biology olympiad in the seventh grade. I ended up there completely by accident: I just needed one more person, because one of the participants got sick and couldn't come. She answered the questions carefully, but not too much. The last 2 questions were on the same topic, which I didn't understand at all. After analyzing the text of the last task, I found the answer to the penultimate one, after which it became much easier to answer the last one. As a result, the first place in the gymnasium. �:)

  29. In the 3rd and 4th year of college, I did not go to pairs at all (I also worked as a secretary there). Two months before the defense, I realized that it was time to do a diploma and prepare to enter the university, and there was no knowledge of the specialty at all… Then I diligently began to “catch up” and eventually defended my diploma with “excellent”, and entered the university on a budget, although there were 2 budget places for about 100 students.

  30. Not so long ago in Krasnoyarsk there was a conference on the topic”Development practices: individual initiative in a new educational space”, there was Boris Danilovich Elkonin, Doctor of Psychological Sciences.�
