Very difficult to say what is genius.Gorts would say someone like Eistein..here is the list which he made for his wife-

 You will make sure:

- that my clothes and laundry are kept in good order; - that I will receive my three meals regularly in my room; - that my bedroom and study are kept neat, and especially that my desk is left for my use only. 

  You will renounce all personal relations with me insofar as they are not completely necessary for social reasons. Specifically, You will forego:

 - my sitting at home with you;  - my going out or travelling with you.   

You will obey the following points in your relations with me:

 - you will not expect any intimacy from me, nor will you reproach me in any way;  - you will stop talking to me if I request it;  - you will leave my bedroom or study immediately without protest if I request it. 

You will undertake not to belittle me in front of our children, either through words or behaviour.

A genius would know better.
I think you are very intelligent for you have dedided to:
1.Not take up a job
2.Not marry or have kids
3.Keep social interactions to a minimum.

You are saving yourself from a lot of certain pain this way.

I have been engrossed in The Cambridge Companion to S.Splendid work.
S.  maybe  easier to comprehend than Hegel but there are portions in his work which could be difficult to grasp.This book is making things easier for me.
