How To Tell If Someone Is Truly Smart Or Just Average
Michael Simmons

I once listened to a very clever member of Alan Turing`s team describe how he knew that Alan was a genius and not just very smart. He said when working with clever people and one of them explains a clever idea he often thought to himself that he could have thought of that. When Alan Turing explained an idea he always said to himself “ I would never have thought of that “. And that he said was the difference between smart / clever and a genius.
