- “Genius and ‘near’ genius. Intelligence tests have not been in use long enough to enable us to define genius definitely in terms of IQ.”
Hence, somewhere in the range of 141+ (to the ceiling genius IQ) is where pass from "genius or near genius" to "genius"? Accordingly, the determination of what specific "IQ number" to assign to the genius / non-genius divide, similar to the IQ 200 divide, is a problematic subject.
In 1938, Leta Hollingworth, objected to this cutoff, i.e. that an IQ of 140 was "too low" a genius / non-genius divide, as it captures too much of the population, in attempts to classify what, in reality, is a VERY "rare" phenomenon, historically speaking.
In 2020, Libb Thims, amid switching article titles from "top 1000 geniuses" to "top 2000 geniuses", began to realize that the premise of there being two-thousand actual geniuses, in totality, may be a value not matching up with reality?
