How to Become A Genius and Think like Genious: Learn How to Innovate

Edited by Steven Mruma, KnowItSome, Bo, LB.StorM, Chris Hadley and 64 others
    There are many ways to classify a genius. But if you look at the historical figures whom most people would consider geniuses, such as Albert Einstein, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Beethoven, you can see one thing they all share in common: they were all able to think in a way different from the mainstream, and thus made connections that no one else did. Based on that pattern, this article will address some of the ways you can think like a genius.

  1. 1
    Love learning. Geniuses are passionate about the things they do. If you want to think like a genius, find what you love and dive in headfirst.

    • Figure out what your learning style is and make use of it. The major types are auditory, visual-spatial, verbal-linguistic and kinesthetic. Experiment with different techniques for absorbing information and stick with what works best.
    • Learn how to self-educate. There are lots of resources available on the internet and through local services like community colleges and libraries that can put all sorts of exciting information at your fingertips.
    • Be pro-active and ask questions. There are people you meet every day that know all sorts of things and have all sorts of valuable skills to share. As a genius, be interested in the potential in everything.
    • Be over-comprehensive in your studies. Learn everything there is to know.
    • As you learn about different disciplines, think about how they connect to one another.
  2. 2
    Start ambitious projects and see them through from start to finish. Genius ideas have often occurred in the pursuit of something that many contemporaries thought to be downright crazy. Create opportunities for yourself to discover new things by embarking on journeys no one has embarked on yet.


    Embrace change, uncertainty, and doubt. It is on these edges of knowledge that innovation and discovery happen. Don't be afraid to question conventional wisdom; geniuses are the ones who rewrite those conventions.

LEARN: Guide for Writing Project Proposals

This is a summary of how to write good, concise proposals for course projects. The focus of this summary is on programming or implementation projects, but the general ideas can be applied to most proposals. The recommended lengths of sections are given assuming a document length of 2 to 5 pages. Use appropriate scaling for longer proposal documents.

Sample Outline

The following is a sample outline for a project proposal. Note that all questions for a section may not apply to your proposal, and should be used as a general guide only.
  1. Introduction (1 or 2 paragraphs)
    • Motivation Sentence
    • Summarize the problem (1 or 2 sentences)
    • Summarize the solution (1 or 2 sentences)
    • Describe format of rest of proposal (sections, etc.)
  2. Motivation (1 to 3 paragraphs)
    • What is the history of the problem?
    • Why is this problem interesting?
    • When and why does the problem occur?
    • Is the problem already solved? What is done now?
    • Are there any similar systems or solutions to the one you propose? If so, reference and very briefly explain them.
    • Are there are possible improvements to current solutions?
  3. Project Summary (1 paragraph)
    • What in general will this project achieve? (Do not delve into details or timelines.)
  4. Project Details
