What I find most admirable about Albert
Einstein is the way he thought up his theories
and had the ability to conduct experiments on
them. By doing this, he answered many
questions of the scientific realm of the world.
Some of the traits I admire are:

1. A trait I admire is his curiosity because he
always wanted to find out how things worked.
When he was five years old his father gave
him a compass. It was a mystery to him. He
wanted to know why the arrow always
pointed north. His father explained magnetism
to him, but that explanation didn't make the
invisible power less mysterious. When he was
older, he learned more about magnets. He
knew that the earth's magnetic field made the
needle point north. Since I am also very
curious about how things work, this trait is
one that I definitely share with him.

Another trait that I admire is that he was a
friendly teacher with a sense of humor, and
that is what his students liked about him. In
1909 Albert was offered a position as an
associate professor at the University of
Zurich. His friendliness and sense of humor
made him popular with his students even
though they thought he was a little strange.
How did they think he was strange? Well, on
his first day of class he came dressed in
pants that were too short and he had his
notes on a single scrap of paper. But after
talking for a few minutes, his students knew
that they had a very special teacher. He
cared about physics and about his students.
He enjoyed talking to his students and would
interrupt his own work just to help them. He
was always welcoming questions and often
invited his students to a local cafe or his
home to continue classroom discussions I
found that teachers I had in the past who
were friendly made learning more interesting.

Another trait was that he was good at math.
Albert didn't care for school. The only subject
he did like was math because figuring out
problems was easy and fun for him. His uncle...
