Speaking of a genius, we can say that a genius is a person who displays exceptional intellectual ability.

When it comes to an exceptional intellectual ability, we should say that the person is intellectually gifted, so, for instance, they may have a striking talent for mathematics. For example, Grigori Perelman is a genius, who is famous for his mathematical skills.

Furthermore, a genius should be creative and make up things easily. Also, they are objective about their work and focused.

However, many geniuses have shown high achievements in only a single kind of activity. For example, Chaikovsky was famous for his music; Hawking for his knowledge of physics; Marie Curie for discovering Radium.

To sum up, a genius is a person who is gifted in some sphere or at least much better than the others.
