Is it determined by examinations?
Or IQ test?
From what I understand
Genius = someone who is very intelligent and very creative
Many people are intelligent, but they are not creative
Some people are creative, but they're not intelligent
not able to bind the creativity with their intelligence
IQ test anyone?
Owh I do think it is not ideal to measure genius
He is genius if he could apply new techniques
He is genius based on what he produced, later in life
He is genius if he master in various fields
Is it so?
Maybe genius is a subjective matter
I think it is hard to state the exact definition
So what do you think?
To compare Einstein and Leonardo Da Vinci
Einstein is talented specifically in one field, Physics
Leonardo Da Vinci is a polymath (various field)
Could you see the difference?
Do you remember Adiputra?
They said he is a genius in Math
He is damn bored doing all the basic calculations in school
Parents wanted him to be sent to University
People here and there have their own opinions
Genius in Math doesn't mean he masters in other fields too
But one could be like Einstein, to master only in Physics
And one could be like Leonardo Da Vinci to be polymath
After all, it is his decision to be any
Yes somehow his IQ level is higher than the teachers
But he doesn't possess the knowledge which his teachers have
Learning = to acquire knowledge ---> apply
I believe there are many of them like Adiputra
but yet they've been stuck in our normal education system
Malaysia should have an effective system to spot those 'potential' students
and should have a unit to polish them
thus all the 'gold' could be use to 'conquer the world'
*******************************************If a people succeeded
His IQ only helps him 6% - 20%
It is actually the EQ which did help him a lot
IQ is relatively stable
but EQ is expandable
The highest EQ is during birth
Kids got a positive EQ and fitrah
Then it reduces with the environment and negative conditions
It could be treated back to the level of fitrah and nature
with the SQ (spiritual quotient)
as the SQ lead people to the fundamental value
and towards the realization of our purpose of life
SQ brings us to a widen meaning and value of our life
