10 Of The Greatest Minds You Should Know About

But this is not to discredit many others who are just as wonderful.

10 Of The Greatest Minds You Should Know About

As you will go through this list of people, don't forget that there are so many more people who have impacted this worlds development in so many ways. Those who are listed are just a few of my favorites for so many reasons. Between Hawking who was diagnosed with ALS but continued to have one the best minds know to exist, John Forbes Nash Jr. who was a brilliant mathematician who also suffered from Schizophrenia, to Erikson and Freud who didn't suffer from an “illness" but rather suffered emotionally, which is what inspired their theories!

It is truly inspiring and astonishing to read about these people and get as close a glimpse as we can into their minds and the way they think. But I all too often think we overlook the fact that they, along with so many others, contributed to everything we understand, use, and learn more about in our present day.

1. Stephen Hawking- Theory of Everything 

2. John Forbes Nash Jr.- Game Theory 

3. Alan Turing- Turing Machine 

4. Albert Einstein- General and Special Relativity 

5. Plank, Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg, Schrodinger, Born, Dirac- Quantum Theory 

6. Sigmund Freud- Psychosexual Development Theory

7. Erik Erikson- Psychosocial Development Theory 

8. John Piaget- Cognitive Development Theory 

9. Albert Bandura- Social Learning Theory 

10. Lev Vygotsky- Sociocultural Theory

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
