GOOD MORNING MY EVERLASTING READERS.
JUST REMEMBER THAT; AUTOMATICALLY SAYING”I CANT DO IT” IS A SIGN OF MENTAL LAZINESS.
What is Deep Understanding?
“It is the peculiarity of knowledge that those who really thirst for it always get it.”
Regardless of whether technology is in the picture or not, I’ve been wondering about deep understanding: what is it, and is it a goal we can actually realize in our LIFE these days?
There is no way, in a time when knowledge is growing at such an exponential rate, that we’ll be able to keep up with level of knowledge that is relevant and comprehensive enough to save our lives. Or can we?
MAYBE WE SHOULD ASK“WHAT KIND OF THINKERS DO WE WANT TO BE?”
Especially in the face of ubiquitous access to information, it seems that we’ll need to manage large quantities of information, but still be able to reach deep understanding in some areas.
But what is deep understanding? Can schools really provide the learning environment to nurture and develop it?
Deep understanding must involve a well-developed, rich base of knowledge that has relative complexity based upon developmental level. Can we have deep understanding at a young age? I think so. As a teacher of young children I have seen our youngest children develop some relatively complex skills given the limitations of their development, and I have myself, to the glory of God.
Deep understanding also involves understanding that is flexible and useful in solving real problems.
Deep understanding is not often treated as an endpoint, but more often encourages continued growth and the desire to know more.
Learning is seldom done, finished or complete, but rather leads us in a new path. Can we cultivate this kind of thinking in younger students?
I have decided to give myself the task of leading you to the knowledge of some important things in life that is necessary to keep you going and remain sustained on top of the game of life: 100 THINGS YOU MUST KNOW
3. Dr. Salihu Dasuki Nakande
Born in October, 1987, he is one of Nigeria’s youngest PhD holders, and arguably the youngest in northern Nigeria. He graduated with a first class degree in Information Technology from Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU), North Cyprus at 21. Dr. Salihu completed his Master’s degree at Brunel University, U.K. He capped it with a PhD in the same University in 2012.
2. Dr. Olaoluwa Hallowed Oluwadara
Acclaimed as Africa’s youngest PhD holders, Olaoluwa is a spectacular Nigerian intellectual and scholar, because of his achievements. He entered the University for a Bachelor’s degree at 15. He earned two B.Sc degrees in Mathematics and Physics, from University of Bangui, Central African Republic (CAR), run simultaneously. He bagged his Master’s degree from the same University.
He crowned it with a PhD in Mathematics at the University of Lagos, Akoka, where he was the best graduating PhD student. Dr. Olaoluwa H. Oluwadara won University of Bangui’s all-time best student award from the Department of Mathematics (B.Sc), best B.Sc student award in Physics, 2007 and best M.Sc awards in Physics and Mathematics respectively in 2008. He currently is a Research Fellow of the Mathematical Analysis and Optimisation Research Group.
1. Dr. Nkemehule Karl Omebere-Iyari
Here we have the leader of the pack. A colossus of intellectual ingenuity. Dr. Omebere-Iyari, bagged his PhD in Chemical Engineering from University of Nottingham in 2006, then aged 22. This amazing Nigerian, an old student of Kings College, Lagos had 8 As in his WAEC result at age 16.
He proceeded same year to Oxbridge, Ikeja, where he wrote and passed his A-levels, scoring ‘A’ in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. He entered University of Nottingham immediately and graduated three years later with a first class in Chemical Engineering at 19 in 2003.
He was also the best graduating student in Chemical Engineering that year. With a university scholarship, Omebere-Iyari wasted no time, and pursued his PhD. He received a EU grant of €17,000 every year, and finished his Doctorate in record time of three years, specializing in multi-phase flow. Omebere-Iyari has distinguished himself as an exceptionally gifted Nigerian.
Upon graduation, he was worked with many multinational cooperation as Shell, Halliburton, e.t.c. He earned an MBA with distinction from INSEAD/Wharton, and is a member of many professional groups.
Climbing the academic walls of the higher institution down to the peak of obtaining a doctorate degree (PHD) has always been considered to be quite a meritorious feat. Nigerians are one of the most educated nationalities.
Starting from the “Last not Least”, The 5 youngest PHD Holders in Nigeria are:
5. Dr. Olabisi Adeyemi
This young intellectual earned her PhD in Botany from the University of Lagos. Though she had maintained a track record of academic successes right from her secondary school, she acknowledge that having a PhD at her age, and the record of being the best graduating PhD student didn’t come easy.
Born in Lagos Island local government of Lagos state, Dr. Adeyemi attended Girls’ Academy, L/Island where she was the best student in WAEC, with seven distinctions. She proceeded to University of Lagos and graduated with a first class degree in botany in 2006. She completed her PhD in within record time in 2012.
4. Dr. Opeyemi Shodipe
This young Nigerian scholar bagged her Bachelor’s Degree at 19, from Babcock University. After the mandatory NYSC programme, she entered for a Masters at University of Ibadan, graduating best in her department. She capped it with a well-deserved Doctorate degree in Information Science from her alma mater, Babcock University. She was 25.
WATCH OUT ON “EVERLASTING WHIZKIDS” FOR THE CONCLUSION.
1. They’re highly adaptable.
intelligent people are flexible and able to thrive in different settings. intelligent people adapt by “showing what can be done regardless of the complications or restrictions placed upon them.”
Recent psychological research supports this idea. Intelligence depends on being able to change your own behaviors in order to cope more effectively with your environment, or make changes to the environment you’re in.
2. They understand how much they don’t know.
The smartest folks are able to admit when they aren’t familiar with a particular concept. As Jim Winer writes, intelligent people “are not afraid to say: ‘I don’t know.’ If they don’t know it, they can learn it.”
3. They have insatiable curiosity.
Albert Einstein reportedly said, “I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious.”
Or, as Keyzurbur Alas puts it, “Intelligent people let themselves become fascinated by things others take for granted.”
Research suggests there’s a link between childhood intelligence and openness to experience — which encompasses intellectual curiosity — in adulthood.
4. They’re open-minded.
Smart people don’t close themselves off to new ideas or opportunities. Hammett writes that intelligent people are “willing to accept and consider other views with value and broad-mindedness,” and that they are “open to alternative solutions.”
Psychologists say that open-minded people — those who seek out alternate viewpoints and weigh the evidence fairly — tend to score higher on the SAT and on intelligence tests.
At the same time, smart people are careful about which ideas and perspectives they adopt.
“An intelligent mind has a strong aversion to accepting things on face value and therefore withholds belief until presented with ample evidence,” says Alas.
5. They like their own company.
6. They have high self-control.
Zoher Ali writes smart people are able to overcome impulsiveness by “planning, clarifying goals, exploring alternative strategies, and considering consequences before [they] begin.”
Results showed that participants who chose the larger payout at a later date — i.e., those who had more self-control — generally scored higher on intelligence tests.
The researchers behind that study say one area of the brain — the anterior prefrontal cortex — might play a role in helping people solve tough problems and demonstrate self-control while working toward goals.
7. They’re really funny.
Advita Bihani points out highly intelligent people tend to have a great sense of humor.
Scientists agree. One study found people who wrote funnier cartoon captions scored higher on measures of verbal intelligence. Another study found professional comedians scored higher than average on measures of verbal intelligence.
8. They’re sensitive to other people’s experiences.
Smart people can “almost feel what someone is thinking/feeling,”says He.
Some psychologists argue that empathy, being attuned to the needs and feelings of others and acting in a way that is sensitive to those needs, is a core component of emotional intelligence. Emotionally intelligent individuals are typically very interested in talking to new people and learning more about them.
SEE YOU NEXT TIME. LOVE YA.
