Our proposed “Study Philosophy” is described with the statement that “If you can explain a difficult terminology with common sense, now you understand it“. This is a definition of Genius whereas foolish people explain even an easy thing in a difficult way. So, you got to try to use an easy way of explaining even for a difficult matter. Then, you even can explain anything to anyone who is a non-expert, such as your grandmom. 4 kinds of people who are explaining someting to someone else are listed below, and sumamrized in the table below:

  1. Ordinary people: explain an easy thing with an easy way (easy by easy).
  2. Ordinary people: explain a difficult thing with a difficult way (difficult by difficult).
  3. Foolish people: explain an easy thing with a difficult way (easy by difficult).
  4. Genius people: explain even a difficult thing with an easy way (difficult by easy).
