The story of Einstein’s smart driver show wisdom can help you turn the tables, unexpectedly out of difficult situations.
When Einstein’s theory of relativity became famous, he was invited to lecture on this theory. Einstein often traveled by car, and wherever he went, he went with his own driver. In every performance, Einstein’s driver often sits in the last row.
One day, Einstein was on his way to a lecture when his driver suddenly said, “Sir, your relativism is so simple that I can speak. I have heard it so much. remember every word he said about it “.
Instead of feeling annoyed, Einstein considered it a compliment, because he was happy to know that even his driver, who had no knowledge of science, understood his theory. .
At that time, communication technologies were not as developed as they are now, and even many people did not know Einstein. So Einstein told his driver: “So soon, I want you to be the one to present my theory.”
The driver agrees. When they reached the rendezvous point, 2 people changed clothes. The driver dressed like a scientist, and Einstein wore like a driver and the two entered the big hall.
Finally, the driver stepped onto the podium and began to present Einstein’s theory of relativity so well that no one doubted.
After the presentation, the participants asked questions. Most of the questions at this presentation were the same as in the previous sessions, so the driver could easily handle it himself.
However, in the end, one participant asked a difficult question that made the driver not know how to answer.
At this point, he knew that if he confessed that Einstein’s driver would make Einstein faceless, as well as make a bad impression for the entire hall that day.
Therefore, after thinking for a while, this person answered: “Your question is so easy that my driver can answer it. He is sitting in the last row, he just goes to ask he watched “.
Einstein was amazed by the driver’s quick and clever reaction. He answered that question and the presentation ended well.
Lesson learned: Wisdom can help you turn the tables, unexpectedly out of difficult situations.
