  • Are geniuses born or made?
  • How do psychologists measure genius?
  • Is it genius, or is it madness?

Genius, contrary to common belief, is not strictly a matter of intelligence. Intellect, personality, creativity, even serendipity play a significant role in molding a genius. So, what does it mean to be a genius?

Genius 101 examines the many definitions of genius, and the multiple domains in which it appears, including art, science, music, business, literature, and the media.
