    I agree that it's a dumb question. I was just curious at what some people believed to be true. There are too many layers of genius to uncover to make any generalities as you stated. Also a fitting example with the Mt. Everest climber.

    Granted even though they may not be a genius per se, I'm still amazed at people who could solve something so challenging. I can't deny they have certain special skills that I wish I had.

    Good point, I like to divide it into the classic book versus street smarts where you may be an expert on a spatial or overall academic level but you lack social skills and communication to hold down relationships or jobs. It's all in your attitude.

    I wasn't sure this was a great question but your response is quite intriguing. I think it can compliment other true genius attributes although it may also not mean anything. People can learn most things with practice but it doesn't make you a genius.
