Many dimensions: Different people do well in different ways -- physical, social, musical, artistic, spiritual. If your family of "geniuses" undervalue you because your achievements aren't in academics, then they are imbeciles when it comes to basic human skills. Please yourself, not them. The curies, the great science family, produced only one truly likable member -- eva, who wasn't interested in science. Be you.
