Week 2 Blog

Kyle Weber
The Outliers

In one of the chapters in my book, Chris Langan is the protagonist. His positive traits are that he is very smart. His IQ is above Einstein's and he has been called the smartest man in the world. His negative traits include being from a middle class family that doesn't appreciate or value education. That being said, he didn't get to continue his scholarship because his mother didn't return the forms with her signature that were required. He is also laid back, which is good and bad at times.


  1. How do his parents not believe in education? Did his mother intentionally not sign the papers or did she just forget?

  2. How high was his IQ? What are some times when him being laid back is bad? How much was the scholarship worth? It must have been a lot if his IQ was so high.
