My topic today is “The Lonely Genius --Savant Syndrome.” Savant syndrome is a mental disease and the sufferers usually possess special talents. Some have amazing memory to memorize all the content of a dictionary, some have astonishing ability of calculation and some can perform the melody perfectly after hearing it once.
Even though they perform fantastically in some aspects, such as memory, calculation and music, they can’t do things that ordinary people consider common, such as crossing the road. In addition they extremely lack of affection, making them hard to communicate with others. They are regarded as mental deficiency only that they possess excellent talents.
Perhaps God treats everyone equally, just like the saying, “when God closes a door, he opens a window.” People with savant syndrome develop their extraordinary abilities because they won’t be affected by the environment. Everyone has innate talent, the only question is to make good use of it or not. Therefore, never say that you’re stupid.
