One of the ways people say the intelligence works is through the ability to see patterns out of chaos. So, when John Nash is able to see patterns,  this show that he is somehow different. In short, he is a genius. The patterns, he sees are in numbers, people, animals, etc. However, there is a fine line between genius and insanity. And there may even be a blurring of the two. The movie, in my opinion, does a superb job exploring this tension. In the end, John Nash is both - an insane genius whose genius controls the former.
