For me, genius is 99% intelligence and 1% knowledge.

Knowledge, or regurgitation is a mere test of memory. Intelligence or nous is always more imo.

As for definitions, knowledge tells you that a tomato is a fruit. Intelligence tells you not to put it in the fruit bowl.

Any thoughts?

I think this will probably be a thread about how everyone agrees with you.

But I agree.

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

Somewhat interesting is the fact that at their extremes it seems you'd be unable to tell them apart. If someone was infinitely intelligent, they would deduce all knowledge from a single observation, and if someone was infinitely knowledgable, they would appear to be able to solve any problem, even if they couldn't.

True. But what about intelligence?

Think reality. Not on paper as these extremes will never exist.

Can I ask how you decided on the precise percentages?

Alternatively, I'll think about whatever I please.

It's a form of reasoning known as reductio ad absurdum, and serves rather well to illustrate the futility of this discussion (and the dichotomy you posit).

The real world is a big scary place. Enjoy it one day.

For me knowing things is almost pointless when you just work it out and maybe improve it. Pointless rounded up, IMO = 1%.

Knowledge Is knowing that a rhino charge is deadly.

Intelligence is moving out of the way.
