Most of us the impression that rocket scientists and brain surgeons super-brainy. Scientists have research that members of the general public are actually just as smart as those high-flyers. Researchers from University College London 329 aerospace engineers and 72 neurosurgeons to tests designed to six different areas of cognition. The researchers their data with those from 18,257 respondents who had previously the tests. The researchers said: "Only two differences significant: the neurosurgeons' problem-solving speed was quicker and their memory recall speed was slower."

The research the validity of using English phrases such as "this isn't rocket science" or "that isn't brain surgery". We use these expressions to something is actually quite easy to understand. Are aeronautics and neuroscience so mindboggling? The researchers some light on this. They said: "In situations that do not rapid problem solving, it might more correct to use 'It's not brain surgery', but in situations where rapid information recall is this phrase should avoided." This hope to all of us that we can on careers we once disregarded because of "genius-level" requirements. However, this could to a glut of brain surgeons and rocket designers.
