Thank you!!

Apparently you are the closest to understand the point. Many - if not most - people misinterpreted the quality I tried to describe as some socialising skills. Maybe I didn't articulate properly before or maybe I didn't emphasise the crux adequately.

This topic was misunderstood in other forums also. It is not about socialising.

The matter is that geniuses were expected to be a pleasurable experience like say pleasure felt in reading a good book, pleasure felt in a delicious food, pleasure felt in watching a great movie, pleasure children feel in evening time play, pleasure felt in melodious music etc. The ones I met gave no such pleasure.

No, they are just supposed to vastly excell in one field than others. Expecting them to be some sort of Nietzchean Übermenschen is quite funny.

Maybe you just don't listen, that's the same point I made (and then insulted me for) I said about spending time with them doing what they do. No where did I mention going on a drink or anything social

Also isn't Bruce Banner only cool as Hulk Tony Stark is a Elon Musk style "genius". And are films about Stephen Hawkins, Katherine G. Johnson or Alan Turing not interesting

So, I was right? Your impression and hopes of geniuses were built on... pop-culture depiction of geniuses, sci-fi movies? That's why it's a sci-fi - they write those characters in a manner for a viewer to experience as certain amount of emotions regarding that character, to like them (or not). For example, Tony Stark - a very complex character, genius that would be quite fun to have a convo with. Or Gregory House. The reality doesn't work like that. Does it mean there are no geniuses like House or Stark with such characters and personalities? Of course there are, but less than you would like for such people to exist...
