[“The young Mozart’s prowess can be chalked up to practice, practice, practice. Compelled to practice three hours a day from age three on.. No wonder they thought he was a genius.” Malcolm Gladwell – From article: Adult Genius, Unexceptional Kid.]
Timothy Kenny comments about genius:
“The biggest lie about Genius is that genius is inborn. IQ is inborn. Genius is the combination of IQ and other factors. The truth is, many geniuses were only slightly above average in terms of IQ (Richard Feynman, widely regarded as the last American genius, had an IQ of only 122)… it is their thinking strategies that made them exceptional.
“The other big lie about genius is that it only relates to intellectual performance. The truth is that there are 9 intelligence types, and a genius is someone who excels in any one of those areas. But because western culture values intellectual performance above all others, our collective view of genius is skewed
“In fact, the root word of genius comes from Greek. Genius originally meant the potential within any person that, if cultivated, would make them exceptional in what they were born to do.”
