What is the difference between intelligence (IQ) and genius (very high level of IQ)?
Everyone knows the famous names in history, men and women who made a huge contribution to (something you do to help something happen) their work. But what is genius?
“There’s no one way to define genius.” “For example, the IQ higher than 145 (picture below) can be considered (be thought about as) genius.”
Genius people are certainly very smart. So, if you look at inside the head of one of the best and brightest, is the brain any different than average?
It must be. Because environment is going to make a huge change. Researchers believe that every brain does not work the same way. A “smart brain” works in many ways, and men and women with the same IQ may have different structures.”
The ability to solve the rare (not seen or found very often) problem is what separates smart from genius. There are different networks in the brain that seem to do deductive reasoning, and those networks that are bigger, stronger and faster will be successful most of the time. Creativity is the other network. It is slower, and allows for all the processes to run (work) together.
So, creativity is “the secret sauce” of genius, which uses intelligence. Creativity and deductive reasoning change slowly, but the ability to think outside the box (find new ideas) with creativity is genius.
