I'm always curious why people have such a black and white view of things.

Do people need a favourite anything? Why do people feel the need to assign the title of 'favourite'?

Can a person not have a variety of people they like for various reasons?

I agree with you. like my favorite person is myself (bc I'm awesome!).
Idealizing a person only creates a false atmosphere that the said person is perfect.
And with that assumption there can only be room for either perfection or utter failure.
And being that everyone is perfectly imperfect, there is only room for the failure.

Einestein’s favourite physicist must have been Zweistein, and he in turn adored the famous Dreistein, and as far as I know they all loved the Rolling Stones.

yes those rolling stones were quite the bomb of physics back then.

yup :approve:

... of course everything is relative and some say there were some beetles or bagels or whatever, that had some impact as well ...

To be sure, for a very long time Einstein's favorite physicist was Mileva. :!)

now now let's be rational we want the truth!
then again what is the truth?
can we prove that anything is true?

That’s true Lacy. But when it comes to the real Einestein, there are rumors that he enjoyed spending warped quality-time with a different lady named Mieleva (and of course playing Rolling Stones at 110 dB and smoking his pipe, in the same space-time).

:biggrin:

As far I can see, Einestein has showed us that anything is possible ... true ... :bugeye:

No! Niels Bore was Einestein’s Antagonist #1. They kept on fighting a whole life and the last words from Einestein was:
– You are sooooo boring and soooo wrong! :grumpy:​

Well, maybe it’s time to stop the joking and be serious... :blushing: after all, it’s jsantos94 first post on PF, and even if it was a funny missepelleing + maybe an 'odd' question:

Welcome to PF jsantos94!

Niels Bohr was a much respected friend to Einstein, but they were different personalities. Bohr’s scientific work was introduced into the world by constant verbal communication, and he had his 'school' and his 'disciples'.

Einstein was different, he thought of himself as the "lone traveler", and he wrote that after the age of twelve he developed a "skeptical attitude towards the convictions which were alive in any specific social environment – an attitude which has never again left me". Einstein remarked in 1930 on his own:
"Pronounced lack of need for direct contact with other human beings and human communities, I am truly a 'lone traveler' and have never belonged to my country, my home, or even my immediate family with my whole heart. In the face of all these ties I have never lost a sense of distance and a need for solitude – feelings that increase with the years."

And if we add these Einstein quotes:
"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

"There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle."

"If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things."

You’ll see that Einstein was not the 'archetype' for putting big poster on the wall and worshiping "old farts"...

But I’m pretty sure had all the respect for knowledge, intelligence and creativity, and his 'predecessor' on gravity, Sir Isaac Newton, must of course had influenced him. Einstein wrote in his Autobiographical Notes:
"Newton, forgive me; you found the only way which, in your age, was just about possible for a man of the highest thought and creative power."

For Einstein – Nature was the biggest source of inspiration and admiration – preferably on his own ...


(I think)

Time to stop all the seriousness, and joke around!

His favorite scientist was Bill Nye.

Your question was: "Who was Einstein's favorite physicist?"

You told us that it "just occurred" to you to wonder about this. Now it's homework? So firstly, your premise was essentially a fabrication, and even if we put that aside you're asking us to answer a question that is fundamentally unanswerable by anyone except Einstein!

I suspect the goal of your homework was for you to give some critical thought to the problem and devise a reason why a particular physicist might have influenced or even inspired Einstein to perform the work he did. Now it's a question of your own imagination!

You are asking us to imagine what you might think a dead scientist's favorite scientist would be.

And you're getting on our cases for being silly?

Uh. Okay. Shame on me, I guess, for making a bad assumption. Buuuut... you're asking for... to get help in... a totally unrelated... on a forum of...

Just... sorry. Springs look like this:
