It turns out that there are (at least) two types of genius. The prodigy model we're all accustomed to, people who do brilliant work early but don't ever hit the highs later in their careers; and those who develop their genius more slowly and often make breakthroughs quite late in life.
This recent Wired article written by a member of the latter is a good read. It warns that we might be too quick to write people off if they don't deliver early in life - it feels there's a really interesting strategy in that insight.
