You don't become a genius. Either you're born as one or you're not. The brain is like a computer that can be programmed. Some people seem to think this can make everyone a genius, however the difference between a genius and an idiot is not the quality or amount of programming but rather the power of your CPU (your data processing capacity), your RAM memory (short term memory) and your hard drive (long term memory) which can only be slightly increased by training. True genius is determined by hardware (genetics), not by software (education).
