Genius and Intelligence

How Stuff Works is a great site that explains in depth many a variety of topics from various fields. It’s like wikipedia in that sense, an online encyclopaedia, but can sometimes produce great articles like this. I particularly like the part where it says, “And all geniuses have a very important aptitude in common — they have an abundance of creative intelligence”. OMG I’M LYK TAHT! IMMAGEENEEYUSS Cough. Excuse me.

Like genius, intelligence can be difficult to quantify. Psychologists and neuroscientists study intelligence extensively. An entire field of study, known as psychometrics, is devoted to studying and measuring intelligence. But even within that field, experts don’t always agree on exactly what it is or how best to analyze it. And while intelligence is central to genius, not all geniuses score well on intelligence tests or perform well in school.
