I don’t think I’m a genius, but I can’t help it if other people think I am.

IMHO, a "genius" is a person who has advanced human civilization in the fields of science, art, agriculture, mechanics, ect. It's measured by what one produces, not by how one wishes to identify. Having a certain IQ, or being told you're a "really smart" doesn't actually make you a "genius."

As for "intelligence," that term, when taken by itself, is so general as to be practically meaningless to me.

Exactly. You pretty much summed it up.

Personally, I don't consider myself a genius and realistically seen, I probably won't be considered one after my death either.

I prefer to admire and read about the achievements of geniuses(?)

I don't need to be one

They often lead tragic lives
