We can deine genius in many ways. I have few points to share with you about defining genius. 1. an exceptional natural capacity of intellect, especially as shown in creative and original work in science, art, music, etc.: the genius of Mozart. 2. a person having such capacity. 3. a person having an extraordinarily high intelligence rating on a psychological test, as an IQ above 140. 4. natural ability or capacity; strong inclination: a special genius for leadership. 5. distinctive character or spirit, as of a nation, period, or language. 6. the guardian spirit of a place, institution, etc. 7. either of two mutually opposed spirits, one good and the other evil, supposed to attend a person throughout life. 8. a person who strongly influences for good or ill the character, conduct, or destiny of a person, place, or thing: Rasputin, the evil genius of Russian politics..

I think everyone has the potential to be a dictionary "genius." But they earn that title by actually harnessing that potential and contributing to the world around them. Yes, the ideal housewife is a genius by virtue. Yes, Isaac Newton was a genius because of dedication and tedius work. We all have that potential, but are you willing to express it?
