A short introduction will be described at first on the history of the discovery, the duality behavior as a wave as well as a particle, and the great importance in human life, of electrons. And later I will turn to a few very recent experimental results of mine and related with the quantum mechanical interaction between electronic wavefunctions, namely the wavefunction recomposition and state mixture of electron states, as well as the chaotic motion and its dynamics of electrons related with shallow impurity in Si and in solid state environment, which reveal another side of electronic characteristics--- as a smart spirit!
