You are classed as a genius if you have a IQ of 140 or more, some say 135 or more. It doesn't really have great real meaning though. It is supposed to mean you have a great ability to understand things that others may struggle to comprehend, but it's not the same as having knowledge, being clever or wise.

Here is more information:

Intelligence consists of a battery of knowledge and skills, among which are music, math, reasoning & logic, memory, emotional state, and basic life skills, most of which are based upon God-given talent, ability, and study. Unlike what many suspect, it isn't all about knowing answers to specific sets of questions. IQ's are not constant because the system of calculation includes the age group of the tested individual and his/her relative mental acuity compared to his/her age group.

IQ's from 120-140 are considered very superior intelligence.

I recently took a (legitimate) IQ test and scored 140. But I did not do well at school and often struggled with tests, so it certainly doesn't mean you will be successful in those areas. I find it laughable that I could be classed as a "genius" just because of this IQ score. You can have a high IQ and still be a fool, in fact in some cases it may even contribute to foolishness. Based on the theory that you can be "so intelligent that you are stupid".

I can tell you from experience that, even if IQ scores are accurate tests of real intelligence, it is rarely an advantage in the modern world. In a world so ruled by stupidity it can often be a disadvantage to be overly intelligent.

To top off this subject, I quote Einstein: Correct guessing is the highest type of thinking. If you can figure out the basis of this assertion, then you might rank high on an IQ scale.
