6 ‘Genius’ “Genius refers to the innate ability in each and every individual - all the resources, the skills, abilities and capacities that are part of being human. Genius is also a state, a way of being, a condition of mind and a set of circumstances – rather than a genetic disposition or ‘God given gift’. It is a talent worked hard for that will manifest in a particular discipline or activity but not in all. The Latin root is genitum which means to beget which in turn means to cause or produce. So genius is only Genius when there is a result.” Myles Downey mylesdowney Enabling Genius 6
