  1. No exceptional revolutions? Were you watching the part where they said that Apple was nearly bankrupt and is now the richest company in the world?! 7 markets – retail stores, personal computing, music, telephony, mobile computing (tablets) etc. No revolutions to electronics? Yeah. Anyway, let’s just say that he was bright – a savvy businessman and an innovator.

  2. If anything, he was a salesman. He didn’t invent anything or make anything that was an exceptional revolution to the world of electronics – he pitched average items as high-end, top notch, hot shit and sold it like hot cakes. A genious? I highly doubt it. In my mind, he possessed a basic understanding og how markets are made.

  3. Lol, no. A 200 Deviation IQ is practically impossible. Realistic high IQs fall between the range of 130-160. Anything more is pushing it. Steve Jobs probably falls somewhere in that range. You can’t dismiss that he was highly intelligent.

  4. Steve jobs is a media hype. Real Genius will be people like Nicholas Tesla. Tesla IQ is around 200. The problem with High IQ people is they don’t have Social Skills.

  5. Jobs may not have been a compasionate and likable leader, but that was not his goal in life either. He was uncompromising and demanding and that’s how you get shit done. Pick any dictator, pharoh or emporer and see what they built and created.

  6. Isn’t it an exciting time we’re all living in? This generation is like none other that has ever been before, or probably will ever be again! We have the tools at our fingertips to instantly share such inspirational material like this to feed our souls, encourage our hearts, and leave us with a feeling of “Yes, It CAN be done!” I gain a lot of my inspiration and writing enthusiasm speaking with and listening to Godly souls like Steve.
