    I take that you meant genius.

    The causes of any type of intelligence is so complex, I believe that it may be the single most complex trait(s) to have ever arisen. Not only in regards to it's genetic architecture, which may involve many different relatively isolated locus, but also epigenetic and GxE factors.

    Genes for Psychosis and Creativity: A Promoter Polymorphism of the Neuregulin 1 Gene Is Related to Creativity in People With High Intellectual Achievement

    Szabolcs Kéri

    Why are genetic polymorphisms related to severe mental disorders retained in the gene pool of a population? A possible answer is that these genetic variations may have a positive impact on psychological functions. Here, I show that a biologically relevant polymorphism of the promoter region of the neuregulin 1 gene (SNP8NRG243177/rs6994992) is associated with creativity in people with high intellectual and academic performance. Intriguingly, the highest creative achievements and creative-thinking scores were found in people who carried the TIT genotype, which was previously shown to be related to psychosis risk and altered prefrontal activation.

    The genotypic IQ test would be a great novelty but the concept of intelligence or a scale of intelligence has so many varying factors that it really can't be correlated with accuracy on a purely genetic basis. The fact that IQ itself is fluid and intelligence is dependent on environmental factors like mental stimulation during childhood, parental nutrition, and the presence or lack of environmental pollution and pathogens, really puts a pause on IQ being a simplified concept.

    What difference does it make if its CC, CT, or TT?

    Genetics has something to do with appearance, athleticism, longevity, healing, brain size, politics, personality, disease, metabolism, and so on... But NOT, intelligence! Nope, intelligence just comes from some mysterious power and listening to lots of mozart. Not only are all humans of the same intelligence but all species innately have the same intelligence!

    Total pc nonsense. The reason people fear IQ is not because of individual variation, most people know they aren't newton and never will be. The reason people fear IQ is because of racial variation. Too bad. There is racial variation and failing to acknowledge the genetic aspects, and insisting it is 100% environmental, leads people to unfairly blame certain groups and spread ill will.

    'TT' means you're homozygous for that particular snp. 'CC' means you're negative.
