Idiot Savants
« on: June 03, 2009, 08:10:13 PM »
Michael's' new photo reminded me of a new topic, idiot savants. It is a topic that I don't believe I have ever heard on C2C.

Does anyone know if this was covered on C2C or some other, perhaps more reliable source?

I recall seeing a 60 minutes episode many moons ago that was truly fascinating.

Can you imagine the George Noory quotes on such a show?

Let me tell you something I've been thinking about recently in terms of savants and autistics - I think that they actually have an advantage when compared to "regular" or "normal" people. They are able to better focus on one skill or area of knowledge and develop the skill. Even finding such a skill in "normal kids" is tough to do.

I agree, Fry.

Also, if you've never seen it - check out a movie called "House of Cards".
