Left radical is 'person' (人). Right radical is a character only found in Chinese that originally meant 'opposed feet'; phonetically it expresses the concept 'differ'. Thus, 'a person different from (normal) persons'. Henshall suggests remembering the right radical by association with 違, and and as a mnemonic: 'Great person differs from others.'
