Description

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.

* 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?

Dr. Simonton introduces the study of genius theory and the research supporting it, using non-scientific, accessible language-fit for a non-genius.
