Each of us has at least some strange (bizarre) habit that we do not want others to know about. In the continuation of this text, I bring you 11 bizarre (strange) habits of world geniuses ....

Because even the greatest minds of mankind were people who were not immune to their strange (bizarre) habits:

Pythagoras

One of the founders of mathematics and one of the most influential philosophical thinkers simply despised some foods, especially beans. Not only did he not want to eat it, but he was also afraid to touch it. That attitude towards beans eventually came to his head, at least that's what the legend says. Pythagoras allegedly ran away from the enemy and came across a field of beans, but instead of hiding in it, he did not want to step inside, so the enemies reached him and killed him.

Ludwig van Beethoven

One of the world's greatest composers preferred to create music between two baths, or after pouring water. He would walk around the room for a long time while he was composing the composition, and at the end he would pour himself water and continue to write down the notes.

Honore de Balzac

Many people cannot imagine a day without a few cups of coffee. And the famous French writer allegedly drank about 50 cups a day! He once said that he worked for 48 hours with only three hours of sleep, so it is clear that coffee helped him stay awake.

Igor Stravinsky

The famous Russian composer, best known for the ballet "Firebird", used to poke his head for 15 minutes every morning. He did this to "clear his mind."

Leonardo da Vinci

Da Vinci was not a fan of sleep. This Renaissance artist, inventor and scientist, in order to achieve everything he had planned, decided to give up the usual few hours of sleep. Instead, he would spend 24 hours awake, then take a short nap, and then be active again all day.

Nikola Tesla

The Serbian scientist and inventor was considered a very unusual person. And he didn't sleep much, only about two hours a day, but that's not the most unusual thing he did. Before going to bed, he would squeeze his toes 100 times, because he believed that it would improve the work of his brain cells. He also loved pigeons, but he despised jewelry and obese women.

Agatha Christie

We often imagine writers at a desk or in a study that exudes their character. Still, the famous detective novelist had neither a study nor a desk. She carried a typewriter with her and wrote wherever she wanted - whether in a hotel or in the kitchen.

Albert Einstein

Einstein has always been eccentric. He didn't like barbers, so he let his hair grow. He did not wear socks because he considered them unnecessary.

Friedrich Nietzsche

One of the most influential European philosophers wrote all his books standing up and criticized all others who did not. Gustave once called Flaubert a "nihilist" because he was resting while Nietzsche was writing. By the way, both Virginia Woolf and Lewis Carroll also liked to write books standing up.

Charles Dickens

Dickens was known as a perfectionist, but it is also possible that he had obsessive-compulsive disorder. He hated it when his hair was not perfectly combed and when even one hair on his head protruded. So he would obsessively comb his hair several times a day. He liked to always have a small vase with flowers, a knife, papers and a bronze statue of two fat frogs with swords on his desk.

Jane Austen

The English writer hated it when a curious person wanted to peek into the writings for her new books before she finished them. So she deliberately did not lubricate the door of her room so that she could hear if anyone was trying to enter.

Thank you for reading my article ... I hope that you enjoyed ...

Today, I dedicated the whole class to Leonardo Da Vinci. The children were delighted when they found out what inventions he sketched.

My favorite is definitely Agatha Christie, and I dragged a typewriter everywhere with me and even on duty at school even though there was a state of emergency and an alert for air threats

Agatha Christie really used type machine in kitchen, that's true, and for other artists and scientists I'm not sure that is true

Geniuses are people too, so they had some bizarre habits like everyone else, although a little strange, but if they helped them, then it is justified.

They probably helped them ...
