The monkey sense is important?

Try this instead...

"Math smart kids show their gift early, even with primitive tasks like comparing quantities and counting."

"Music smart kids show their gift early, even with primitive tasks, like clapping and singing."

"Sports smart kids show their gift early, even with primitive tasks, like running and catching."

The list goes on.

Even you, especially you, must see the fallacy of making monkey-sense "important" in all this.

The key to these things isn't primitive senses. It's the gift, which is much bigger than those primitive tasks.

Now, when you read this, you might (if you are lucky) think "Yeah, that is be a much simpler explanation. How come that isn't what is being written?"

The answer to this is that the "science" of your noble profession is so infected and rotten with politics, it isn't even rational anymore.
