Perceptions of Genius: Einstein, Lesser Mortals and Shooting Stars.
Smith, Chris D.; Wright, Lindsay
Journal of Creative Behavior, v34 n3 p151-64 3rd Qtr 2000
In the first study of the term "genius", 349 undergraduates nominated three geniuses in 1984, 1991, 1993, 1994, and 1997. Einstein was regarded as a stereotypical genius, while other nominees were subjective and transitory. In the second study, nominated geniuses were agreed to on only 26.2 percent of possible occasions. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
