Are you a genius?, brethren. 

A genius is a person who displays exceptional intellectual ability, creative productivity, universality in genres or orignality , typically to a degree that is associated with the achievement of new advances in a domain of knowledge.

Despite the presence of scholars in many subjects throughout history, many geniuses have shown high achievements in only a single kind of activity.

There is no scientifically precise definition of genius, and the question of whether the notion itself has any real meaning has long been a subject of debate, although psychologists are converging on a definition that emphasizes creativity and eminent achievement.

Usually genius is associated with talent, but many authors (for example Cesare Lombroso) systematically distinguish these terms.
