Genius has many Japanese equivalents which you might find 
interesting. The first, which I think is the Genius that
G2K speaks against, is the conception of Kisai, the 
wizard genius, or shunsai, the born and gifted genius, 
super-human in his capacity. Reserved for deities and 
glorifying politicians and influential humans. 

Then there is sousakuryoku. Creative Power, Originality,

My favorite, though, and I believe yours: kuoryou. The
hidden talent. Why do you love this word so? Because it
is also the word for a rain dragon. 

You can find the connection, I am sure, and make a more 
worthy post to the lists than I can.
