Well...as has been pointed out by Ahaan "genius" is a fuzzy thing to define, and even if you could define it in a way everyone liked, the concept of "most genius" on "Brilliant"might not be all that meaningful. There is a conversation happening right now in parallel with this one that more closely adresses the question of what genius is, and you should weigh in if you have an opinion.

On Brilliant you can demonstrate your ability to get the right integer answers on our problem sets. You can also demonstrate an ability to express yourself well, justify your reasoning, teach others, and ask good questions. If we had a good answer to what genius was, chances are it would be speculative, futile, and not-constructive to decide what metrics on Brilliant we would combine to tease out who the "most genius" person on Brilliant is. Even if we could...would we want to?

It is apparent, that our community is very good at self-selecting for motivated people, with intellectual curiosity, who can think critically and sometimes imaginatively about problems posed to them. It is likely that many of you might one day, or already be considered genius. The question of who is the most genius, is much less interesting than the question of who we all are on here. Unlike the rest of the world, Brilliant has the potential to value intelligence in more constructive and useful ways than the crude rankings and grades that substitute for a person's mental identity in the rest of the world.

@Fariz Azmi Pratama I don't like this article.. the problems they are using as examples are really not that hard x_x Michael Tong · 4 years ago

@Michael Tong Yes, I read that article a long time ago and the problems used there are not a testament of those kids' talent.

Some of those were really easy (Did you check out the gummy worm problem? I read that and went like:"Is this a joke?").

These kids are really smart, no doubt. But they shouldn't be judged on the basis of those problems only. Mursalin Habib · 4 years ago

You can't really define "genius" and offend others. But, if you're talking about those in Level 5 in all subjects, I'd say Muhummad A., Derek K., and Lawrence S. are pretty good! Ahaan Rungta · 4 years ago

@Ahaan Rungta Trust me, being level 5 in brilliant isn't the pinnacle of mathematical talent. Michael Tong · 4 years ago
