Jeri BS: The mechanics of genius (34) RE: BS: The mechanics of genius 29 Oct 20


I'm sure there's something you missed explaining.
You have 20 cards. If you turn over the most cards, 10 sets of 2 at a time, you'll simply run out of cards to turn over.

Before we discuss whatever it is we're discussing, we should agree on what "genius" is.
I think the accepted definition has to do with IQ.
We all know there are different ideas about what genius is. The test is math-centric (IMO). Even if there's a wide definition, where does the guy who can figure out how to jury-rig an engine when he doesn't have the right parts fit? What about the girl who can't count to 10, but can watch a dance performance, and copy it exactly? Is it problem solving, or remembering things? Is it being able to figure out that Andy doesn't like Bruce without talking to either one?

So Don, when you wrote "...genius methods can be shown to us What true genius's have in common. ", would you give us a clue what you're talking about? If it's what a "genius method" is, we need an example. I think they are infinite, and I think one has to BE a genius tor recognize a genius.

But whatthehell - it's fun to talk about.
