What does it mean for one to be a genius? Is genius just the upper end of the really smart continuum? Is there a difference between genius and really, really, really, smart? Is it a difference of kind or degree? Is genius a matter of smart plus something? creativity? insight? an ability to see things differently? Can you be a genius, but not be smart at all? Is smart a propensity and genius a judgment of results? Can you be a genius, but not have done anything with it? Is there a difference between being a genius and a prodigy other than age?
