Throughout the ages, there have been literally thousands of great intellectual greats from every walk of life, who have changed the way we live our lives. However, what is it that has made these people so brilliant? This article will attempt to explore some key qualities that a genius has.



It should be clear to anyone that having a high IQ is not the only thing that contributes to genius. Sure, a high IQ can certainly help, but history teaches us that there have been many great figures who had less than genius levels of intellect. Nobel Prize winners for example are geniuses in their own right and have historically had have IQ's as far down as 115-120.  We talk about some other factors below:

1. A superior mind always thinks more creatively than anyone else

A superior mind is always generating new ideas, thoughts and theories. This type of person has vision and can see new angles to anything. They also have greater intuition, because they are connected more to their subconscious mind. Intuition is the subconscious mind communicating on the surface level and this type of thought is powerful because it misses out the critical and analytical functions of the conscious mind. As you may be aware, the subconscious mind is the super processor of your brain and is able to interpret and perceive things from many different angles.

2. A superior mind can see things from many different angles and not just one

This means that the person can see many different points of view. This is what abstract reasoning is all about. The way to develop this for yourself is to be open minded and through showing a genuine interest in other people's ideas without critically judging them on it. When you are non-judgemental and open minded, you begin to open up the subconscious mind and allow its true power to flow through.

3. A superior mind always thinks about learning and improving

A great secret is that there is always more to learn and more to improve upon. For example, in the future, technology will be more sophisticated and there will be better methods and better processes to do things. The superior mind realises this is the case and always thinks to see the possibilities and opportunity which is out there. To always want to improve and do things better is a key quality of genius.

4. A superior mind recognises others' opinions but sticks to vision

A genius always has a vision of what they want to achieve, and they stick to that vision beyond what other people say or do. This is crucial to attaining success because it helps to re-wire the subconscious mind favourably to the thing you are visioning. The subconscious mind reacts to vision and releases its true power that way.

5. There is always an emphasis to extreme productivity

Action is the order of the day. The more action you take, the more results you get. It's as simple as that. A thinker is not necessarily a genius. The genius is one who can act on their thoughts and bring new things into being.

7. A genius always lives in the present moment

When you begin to live in the moment, you begin to unlock the subconscious mind. This is crucial for your success because the subconscious mind is much more powerful than the conscious part of your mind. Living in the moment means placing your whole attention on the here and now, and without wandering about by thinking of random thoughts.

8. Every obstacle is seen as a learning tool

In the superior mind, everything which happens is a step closer to the goal. Everything is seen as an opportunity to grow and get better. Nothing is ever seen in a negative light. Put a different way, the genius is one who is a true optimist, and not a pretend one.

9. Genii are more committed and dedicated to their goals than anyone else

If you are looking for commitment, the genius without a doubt is at the top of the commitment ladder. With commitment and dedication to their goals, a genius is able to push harder, with more focus, more discipline and more perserverance to their goals than anyone else. This is why they achieve so many great things in their lives.
