Scholars have long maintained that each era has a unique spirit, a nature or climate that sets it apart from all other epochs. In German, such a spirit is known as Zeitgeist, from the German words Zeit, meaning “time,” and Geist, meaning “spirit” or “ghost.”
The spirit of the time; the taste and outlook characteristic of a period or generation: “A new cult of technological optimism has deeply embedded itself in the zeitgeist” (Sebastian Seung).
(Historical Terms) the spirit, attitude, or general outlook of a specific time or period, esp as it is reflected in literature, philosophy, etc
[C20: from German, literally: time spirit; see tide1, ghost]
the spirit of the time; general trend of thought or feeling characteristic of a particular period of time.
Leadership Gene RS4950
Are leaders born or made?
Biological and physical traits of leaders is a key interest to the Elite…
To understand what traits the individual has in relation to psychologically and biologically.
Cognitive and behavioral traits to determine if the candidate is a leader.
That individuals biological differences affect the leaders ability to cognitively process thinking.
Chemical and hormonal changes in the body affect a leaders ability to process cognitive behavior patterns
24% of people are born leaders…..
So that is 1/4 so what about the 3/4

Ashkenazi Jews have an higher polygenic score for intelligence (GWAS Polygenic Score, taking into account all alleles linked to intelligence variations to date)
List of genes…
Dysbindin-1 (DTNBP1) Gene
Dab 1 Gene
One of the characteristics of the DNA of people of very high intelligence is a lower frequency of rare mutations. Conversely, schizophrenics and the lowest Q.I would have a higher frequency of these mutations.
Individuals with very high IQ would have advantageous versions of alleles found throughout the intellectual distribution, so it is a continuity to normal, while less intelligent individuals would have mutations that are not found in the normal distribution.
Intelligence is a highly genetic and polygenic characteristic. The genome of a very intelligent person is characterized by a higher density of alleles for high intelligence (myopia, more copies of DUF1220 …), and a lower dental of alleles for low intelligence.
Intelligence is a highly genetic and polygenic trait, like size. Many genes are in play, each varying the final result by only a few points (a few tenths of a point) or a few millimeters. A very intelligent individual will thus have a favorable version of most intelligence-enhancing genes. More than 1000 genes involved in intellectual variations have already been highlighted. It is possible to aggregate the effect of each gene to obtain a polygenic score divided into Gaussian.
Genetic analysis is booming. Companies such as 23andme can sequence the variable parts of your genome, and other companies like http://www.dna.land offer you to analyze, from the raw data available on 23andme, the gene versions (the alleles) that you possess for the genes involved in general intelligence. From there, they can estimate your « most likely Q.I ». At present, only a small part of these genes has been highlighted, so that the possible estimate is extremely inaccurate.
