Kinda lowering the standards, eh? Last I heard genius was a person with an IQ of 162 and a person of 130-40 is intelligent.
There are lots of people with high IQs that have achieved nothing. The label of genius is bestowed upon people who have achieved significant results in a particular field, and I think that this can probably be shown to be not necessarily a function of an inordinately high IQ.
