Toward a Behavioral Definition of Genius
Albert, Robert S.
American Psychologist, 30, 2, 140-151, Feb 75
Some of the troublesome issues involved in the concept of genius are considered. An operational definition of genius is proposed; some of the implications for research on high achievement are presented. Supporting evidence is offered to indicate that it is possible to operationalize such an apparently global concept if one restricts its use to the behavioral, rather than to the sometimes superficially dramatic components of high achievement.
