When I first joined Brilliant, I was at stage 1
Stage 1) where you just go about solving problems.
But after a while, I met stage two,
Stage 2) you have to know how to solve every problem that you can't solve, and when you can't understand a solution, you ask a ton of questions.
This is probably due the the fact that I became more intune with the community and made some friends. After this, I met soooo many smart 15 year olds I hit stage 3
Stage 3). You get addicted and push yourself to solve every problem you can
This lasted a while before I hit stage 3.14
Stage ) you just hit the "reveal solution button" without giving the problem much thought because you want to learn and become an official math nerd and then you start using symbols such as in the most random places.
Finally, I hit stage 4
Stage ) you become addicted to every problem and once you solve it you begin to mull over a generalized form and the "what if they're not parallel" or "what if it's not a polynomial" scenarios. At this point, if you solve 2 problems on Brilliant, you've probably been on for a good 2.5 hours of which you only spent 1 hr solving the actual problems and rest on different scenarios.
So my question is: how accurate is this, and what's stage ?
