Oh darn I thought it was genetics, now it turns out that it's my laziness that prevents me from being a genius. How humiliating ;-)
"It's complicated explaining how genius or expertise is created and why it's so rare," says Anders Ericsson, the professor of psychology at Florida State University in Tallahassee who edited the handbook. "But it isn't magic, and it isn't born. It happens because some critical things line up so that a person of good intelligence can put in the sustained, focused effort it takes to achieve extraordinary mastery. These people don't necessarily have an especially high IQ, but they almost always have very supportive environments, and they almost always have important mentors. And the one thing they always have is this incredible investment of effort." via John Smart
Let's not forget the additional pressure on the parents via that research: "So your daughter is not writing a symphony although she is already pushing 15? I guess you didn't find the right mentor for her, did you?"
