TRUTH !!
In Roman mythology, a genius was the guardian spirit of a man, an
institution, a city, a state, or a large family unit known as a gens. As the
guardian spirit of an individual, the genius was largely the force of one's
natural desires. An individual's notable achievements or intellectual
prowess was attributed to his genius, and, eventually, a high achiever was
said to have genius or be a genius. Today, by contrast, a genius is
considered a person with an intelligence quotient of 140 or higher.
