Michael Grost in 4th grade

Audrey Grost, Genius in Residence: The intimate, informal, and humorous true story of a typical American family faced with the challenge of raising a child prodigy, Prentice Hall, 108

Dr. [Elizabeth] Drews and her assistants initiated a clinical study of Mike [Grost, 4th grade with IQ of 200].  They wanted to know, among other things, how he reacted when he made mistakes.  When they found one, Mike admitted that he had “goofed,” and forged ahead.  One of the psychologists told Bill [Grost] that Mike appeared to be well adjusted to his own mentality and was not afraid of being frowned upon because he was an egghead.  He took correction and frustration well, and was pleased to talk to anybody who would talk to him.
