While giving examples of how difficult any work is, people often compare it to Rocket Science. When any unimaginable work is not understood, then it is said for it, is this rocket science? Not only this, people often use this sentence to describe a task very easy. Like ‘It’s not rocket science.’ Many times people also say that ‘this thing is not as difficult as brain surgery’. The assumption behind the use of these two sentences has been that it is very difficult to understand rocket science and brain surgery. Rocket scientist and brain surgeon working in this field has a very sharp brain. However, a study has claimed the opposite of this notion. Researchers found in the study that it is not necessary that the brains of rocket scientists and brain surgeons are faster than ordinary people. The findings of this study have been published in the BMJ Medical Journal. published Has been done.
The researchers examined data from the International Group of 329 Aerospace Engineers and 72 Neurosurgeons. All of them completed 12 tasks online through the Great British Intelligence Test (JBI). Along with this, he answered some questions based on his age, gender and experience level.
How did the study happen?
Researchers said that during this study their planning, logic ability, ability to remember things, their ability to pay attention to things, their ability to process emotions etc. were included. The researchers then compared these results with those of ordinary people who had completed the same 12 tasks online in the same way. Researchers said that the general population includes data of about 18,000 people in Britain.
neurosurgeons found slightly faster
The researchers found that there was only a small difference in neurosurgeons, whose speed of solving problems was faster than the general population. However, their ability to remember things was slower than that of the general population.
The study further said that aerospace engineers did not perform better than the general population in any field. However, the Mental Manipulation Ability and the ability to pay attention to things of an aerospace engineer was better than that of a neurosurgeon.
