i tend to believe that a true genius doesn't fluctuate but is sharp always. a true genius shoots at targets the rest of us can't even see or conceive of to begin with.

Exactly....I spoke of Nicola Tesla in another thread...I can't think of a more perfect example...

One thing that was annoying about Tesla was his unwillingness to document anything. Thomas Edison was a scrupulous writer and documented everything. Tesla was an eternal source of consternation to him.

Not me:

My scores are all over the place

Verbal-143
something non verbal-108
something non verbal-108
something else non verbal-115

total:125

My son is on the spectrum and has a lower IQ than I do, but he does much better at life.
