5......
And two of those were lucky guesses. :H

ps. Is that a typo in the answer on #6? "He lack respect for politics".

Also 5... with a lot of guesses. The only things I was sure of were the presidency and the “biggest blunder”.
 
I got only 2/12.
I think I know him pretty well except several facts being asked in the survey.

In Question 12, Einstein's name is spelled wrong.

Ein-Shtein, Ein-Shteen, Vat's the Difference?
 
8/12, having recently read the biography by Isaacson

4/12 oh yea. That's pro baseball status right there. Only one was a guess, although I didn't know he was in the mustache hall of fame, but what else was it gonna be? I mean, look at that mustache.

I got 10/12. My mistakes were in the "Hall of Fame in 2015" and "Einstein became an American citizen in". For a moment I had the correct option in the American citizen question but changed it in the last moment! :frown:

3/12 I'll be in the corner with the dunce cap crying... LOL!

I was correct with Nobel year, λ blunder, and his big head.

7 correct, no lucky guesses. I'd be interesting to do one on Feynman or Dirac. No one knows anything about Dirac.

No one knows anything about Dirac.
I do! :woot: And I read a great article about him a while ago... I will see if I can find it again, IBB...
Edit: It wasn't this article I read, but it is a similar one, a review of the book "The Strangest Man": link.

I got five, but that was just for practice lol. Offered a presidency! Wow, we need more Albert life story movies!!!
 
Even if you didn't get a great score at least you know a little bit more trivia about the man :)
