Savant syndrome, proves we're not all biologically the same and our learning ability in all of us is varied.
All human beings are unique, science realises that we all have a unique brain, most of us possess skills at a level of knowledge and talent which is more or less a similar standard, moreover because the human species is diverse, sometimes there can be a wider contrast in the brain from one person to another, in some cases it can be quite different making certain people stand out from the rest, known as Savant syndrome.
Different in such a way that these unique people may lack skills which we take for granted, however they make up for it by possessing a much higher skill which can be so high that it is at a level considered unusual, and their individual thought process is devoted to just this unusual ability, whether in mathematics or a different specialist subject.
The point is, everyone can benefit from a positive mental outlook in life and the way we project our thoughts is imperative to our achieving our own personal goals that we may be striving towards, yes we can learn lots of things as we go through life with hard work and dedication, to a high standard, however because of diversity within the brain we need to understand our limitations.
Some of us may be naturally gifted at mathematics, some naturally good at music, or art, or literature, in the way our brain works, it's rather like a Mini compared to a Ferrari, if both cars are in tip top condition the Mini doesn't possess the power of a Ferrari, and sometimes you'll never be able to compete with certain types of people who possess these higher skills owing to their brain being wired differently, but this doesn't mean you shouldn't do everything within your own capabilities to ensure you achieve your best performance within yourself.
This can be achieved by having the right outlook in life, do the best you can all the time, use positive thoughts and keep yourself and mind in harmony in the best way you can according to your natural ability.
