Find Out The Smartest People On Earth! Their IQ Is Far Beyond Average!

Thursday, March 26, 2015 | |
Intelligence can be measured in many ways. However, the kind of intelligence which the majority of people trust as a barometer of overall brain power is the IQ, the ability to think logically and to solve a problem. The general score of 95% population from these tests ranges between 70 and 130. There are a lot of factors that come into play when a person’s IQ is in question. Factors like mortality, morbidity, parental social status, biological parents’ IQ play an important role in determining a person’s IQ. There are a wide variety of methods used in determining a person’s IQ level, like visual tests, verbal tests, abstract reasoning problems, while some tests are based on arithmetic, reading, vocabulary and general knowledge.

People with high IQ index objectively seem to know almost everything. In case they do not know something, they have the ability to resolve it relatively quickly and easily.

The list is obviously not objective, as the concept of intelligence is very subjective, and there are several different factors beyond the IQ showing how smart someone is.

According to this, however, the 12 smarter people in the world, based on IQ, is as follows:

12. Sharon Stone (IQ level- 154)
This sexy seductress actually is alleged to have an IQ of 154. She has been nominated for several prestigious awards and even received many awards. Who thought the bold and confident actress in Basic Instinct could actually have an IQ that would put many men to shame? She was always an academically bright student and entered second standard at the age of five. She accepted a scholarship to Edinboro University of Pennsylvania when she was just 15years old. She accepted the scholarship and went there to study creative writing and fine arts.

11. Paul Allen (IQ Level- 160)
This business magnate is best known as the co founder of Microsoft alongside Bill Gates. The deal between Microsoft and IBM was Pau Allen’s sheer brilliance and smartness that made IBM believe that the just founded five year old Microsoft actually had a Disk Operating System that worked on Intel chips, even though it didn’t. That deal created history and Paul went on to become the 53rd Richest Man in the World. He scored a perfect 1600 in the SAT, even ahead of Bill Gates. He was also awarded the highest honor of the Washington State University. A man of his stature truly deserves this!

10. Stephen Hawking (IQ Level- 160)
Despite of being diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) which has paralyzed him completely, his brain had recorded an IQ of 154, which took the world by surprise. He has made major and remarkable contributions in the field of general relativity. This versatile paralyzed man showed the world that physical conditions have got nothing to do with fulfilling dreams. He is a theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and the Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the Cambridge. After being diagnosed with the disease, he declined to accept a Doctorate. Surprisingly enough, Hawking survived more years than he was expected to!

9. Albert Einstein (IQ Level 160-190)
Now this man surely needs no introduction. He is the one behind most of the chapters in Physics. He was the one to develop the theory of relativity. He is a Nobel laureate who is best known for the discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect. He also extended his views and laws to the gravitational fields. Einstein was affiliated with the Institute for Advanced Study in New Jersey. His brilliance and achievements were so immense that even today we relate brilliance and “Einstein” together.

8. Judit Polgar (IQ Level- 170)
She is the greatest female chess player according to many. Judit Polgar also became the youngest Grandmaster at the age of 15 and still holds that record. She is the only woman in FIDE’s Top 100 list, where she ranks number 63 on the list. This genius had defeated a reigning world number one player and ten other world champions in different tournaments. She created history in 2002 when she defeated the world number 1 Garry Kasparov in a match and that match went on to become a remarkable event in her career.

7. Garry Kasparov (IQ Level – 190)
This Russian man is considered to be the greatest chess player of all times. He was ranked world no. 1 for 225 times. This genius man in 2003 played against a chess computer that could calculate 3 million moves per second. The match was draw and Kasparov obliged his fans with his unmatched brilliance. Kasparov was the youngest undisputed World Chess Champion just at the age of 22. He has a world record for most number of consecutive victories and most number of Chess Oscars. Apart from being a chess player, this man is also a writer and political activist.

6. Philip Emeagwali (IQ Level- 190)

This man is an engineer, mathematician and geologist who used the Connection Machine supercomputer to analyze petroleum fields. Though he left school at the age of 13 to be a part of the Nigerian-Biafran war but that did not deter him from completing school through self study and earning his degree in Mathematics. His achievements do not end here. He earned three Master’s degree in Mathematics, Environmental and Marine Engineering from various universities. This Nigerian writer also appeared for his PhD at the University of Michigan but he was denied his degree on grounds of racial discrimination and he sued the University for the same. Nevertheless, he will always be a hero to his countrymen and to the rest of the world!

5. Christopher Michael Langan (IQ Level- 195)

This man has been described as the “smartest man in America”. Langan began talking when he was all of six months and he taught himself to read when he was just three and was skipped ahead at school many times. This genius scored a perfect score in SAT even thought he slept his way through the exam. He dropped out of the Montana University stating that he could teach his professors more than they could teach him. Now this statement requires serious self confidence. Hats off to this man!

4. Kim Ung-Yong (IQ Level- 210)
Kim Ung-Yong could speak fluently when he was just six months old and was a guest student in Physics at Hanyang University at the age of 3. He wrote poetry and two short stories by the time he was four years old. Do we need to say more? He left NASA at the age of 16 and though he was offered enrollment at Korea’s most prestigious university, he rejected the offer and instead decided to pursue PhD in civil engineering. Right now, he serves as a faculty in the Chungbuk National University.

3. Christopher Hirata (IQ Level- 225)
Born in 1982, Christopher Hirata had recorded an IQ of 225. He is an outstanding example of child prodigy who had already completed his college level courses by the time he was 12. By the time he turned 16, he was working on a project with the NASA. He was the first one to win a gold medal in international Science Olympiad at the age of 13. He began attending classes for his PhD in astrophysics when he was just 18.

2. Terence Tao (IQ Level- 225-230)
Another child prodigy yet again. This genius taught arithmetic to a 5 year old when he himself was all of 2. He attended mathematics courses of the university level when he was just 9 years old. At 14, Terence Tao attended the Research Science Institute. At 16, he received both his Bachelors and Masters degree and by 20 had received his Doctorate as well. He remains the youngest winner till date of all the three medals in Olympiads. By 24, he was the youngest ever professor at UCLA.

1. William James Sidis (IQ Level- 250-300)
Sidis had exceptional mathematical abilities. At 6, he went to a grammar school and in 7 months he had graduated. He attended Harvard at the age of 11 and mastered over 40 languages. He was threatened by some fellow students in Harvard so his parents assigned him on a teaching job in Texas. But soon he left the job and started concentrating on a political career.

Index IQ:
The IQ is an indicator that allegedly captures the perceptual ability. The test IQ is the medium tries to as objectively through assays possible to quantify this ability.

Intelligence is a concept that encompasses all the cognitive processes of the brain and reflects the ability to solve problems. The ability in mental processes such as analysis, synthesis, identification and reduction and speed, complexity and number of processes that can combine the mind characterizes him as more or less intelligent.

The genius is the concept that captures the very high mental abilities, the very high intelligence and is usually attributed to people whose cognitive ability is ranked in the top one per thousand of the population. It is customary to distinguish brilliant people and have excellent skills in an academic or scientific field.

The charisma is the concept that describes too high cognitive capabilities that span a variety of disciplines and scientific fields. Gifted people are distinguished by the fact that they can be distinguished in that grapple while their intelligence belongs to more than 1 / 10,000 of the human population.

Perceptual ability is tremendously versatile and has many different facets. Also are not fully clarified yet the biological mechanisms that support it. It would be at least naive to believe that someone has found an absolutely reliable intelligence test. Especially the tests that measure the ultra-scales and extremely high intelligence are mostly tests which have been drawn by people with very high cognitive ability however this is essentially a projection of their subjective perception of how intelligence works and this is proven by the many different outcomes that may make different tests of this scale for the same man regarding his IQ.

This does not mean that it is necessary to improve the IQ test. These tests contribute substantially to diagnose the level of perceptual capacity, enable humans to acknowledge the potential of the greatest possible objective, beyond personal considerations and ambitions, and thus help him to leverage it realistically. Essentially these attach a magnitude specified to human beings. Measurements of IQ should not be only a confrontation to interest whether it is accurate. It's enough to be able to deliver approximately one order of magnitude, while the lack of accuracy leaves a refuge for those who succeed score lower their expectations, they can accept more smoothly this frustration. The accuracy of an unambiguous perceptual capacity index serves people, insipid, whose sole determining point in their IQ. People instead of highlighting their potential through their work consumed in IQ tests and use this indicator as a means of classification. Much more useful it would be if we could do as much as possible more accurate tests that measure the various inclinations and talents, particularly in preschool children.

Do you think some one else should be included in this list of people with super high IQ? Let us know below in comments.
