Genius/Deviance

Last night, I read a bit about Marc Gold. He made his name studying ways to teach children who had been labelled as retarded.

One of the concepts that he described is that there is a "competency/deviance trade off" that says the more competency you have in one specific area, the more deviance people will accept in your behavior. (Think Michael Jackson and Marlon Brando.)

Any thoughts on this? The blog I linked to above has a great entry on it.
