Here.

Hint: Geniuses are made, not born. Have you got "fire in the belly"?
or you could read the following books to find out more:
Think Like A Genius: The Ultimate User's Manual for Your Brain by Todd Siler
How to Think like Leonardo da Vinci: Seven Steps to Genius Every Day by Machael J. Gelb
How to Think Like Einstein: Simple Ways to Break The Rules and Discover Your Hidden Genius by Scott Thorpe

Note: The emphasis on "thinking" in the titles.

And, for the theoretically inclined read: Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences by Howard Gardner - has nothing whatsoever to do with genius, but it mght give you some clues.

Thought.

Oh, that most important of things. Most people would seem more genius-like if only they thought, especially before they spoke.

Oddly enough there was advert on tv here only minutes ago for an upcoming show on whether geniuses are born or made.

I believe though that there was suppoasedly a link made between many of the so called 'greatest minds' and the condition aspergers syndrome.

Can't see how they could attribute that condition to Da Vinci or Mozart, owing to the passage of time, but the conclusion was that such people had the ability to fixate on a particular subject more inttently than other people.

True "geniuses" do have the ability to focus on a problem until it is solved to their satisfaction - compromise or not. Right conclusion with perhaps an overlap of the brain functioning with aspergers syndrome, but hardly directly attributable to anything meaning to do with aspergers itself, or otherwise, such as an autistic savat or that famous multi-savant who can articulate himself very well - Daniel Tammet.
