|The many faces of ingenuity. Source.|
This infographic shows the process of being a genius which involves much more than just intelligence. In fact, intelligence isn't even listed in the graphic. Instead, ingenuity takes inspiration, perspiration, improvisation, aspiration, contemplation, exploration, daily frustrations, imitation, desperation, and pure elation. What I took from this graphic is that everyone who is willing to put in the work and effort to become a genius will be a genius. Every individual on this Earth is more than capable to inspire, contemplate, imitate, and much more. I also liked how the image incorporated the dark side of ingenuity such as frustrations and desperation. In every journey, there will be obstacles, but there is always a solution to overcome any obstacle. Another interesting point of the graphic are the percentages. According to the infographic, genius is 29% perspiration (the most) and 0.1% pure elation (the least). In other words, it takes a lot of work to reach your goal, but I guess that short moment of elation makes it all worth it. I strongly believe that nothing worth having in this world comes easy, and ingenuity is definitely worth having.
