I don't like the word genius. To me it seems to be just a way of saying that someone is not understood.
One can have a broad range of interest, large memory, strong skills of association.
One can be called a genius if they accomplish what they do in a mysterious way. They seem to reach a correct or compelling answer and the path to that answer is murky. Why should we see this murkiness as positive? Isn't it better if the process and reasoning can be explained? There are two explanations for the murkiness. Either lack of understanding or deception, sneakiness.
I am a fan of articulation. This makes one a good teacher.
