Hello phycisists, I'm a sophomore high school student that recently finished the first grade and I have a question or two relating to physics. I have been tested by a licensed psychologist that evaluated my cognitive functions and came to the conclusion that my overall intelligence quotient is around 87 because they fluctated a lot. Should this be a logical reason to not to become a phycisist in your honest opinion? I have the capability of understanding advanced sciences if we are excluding the mathematical part of it, especially geometry. I want to become a theoretical astrophycisist (maybe quantum phycisist, still a high probability of occuring) but what should I study at this age (16, soon to be 17) in order to be mentally prepared of what that might appear during my course takings in the university? I can understand the concepts and every fact based information as long as I am reading it, but the mathematics might cause some tremendous problematic situations for me which are predictable and I need help. What quantum physical/astrophysical book can you recommend me to get? I already know the mathematical topics that I need to understand before getting a book, but I just wanna be prepared. My last question: Is a theoretical phycisist working with the principles concerning both astrophysics and quantum physics or is it simply put classical physics? I would preferably work with both but I'm not sure what it's called. Thank you for your time and have a good day.
