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)
11. Paul Allen (IQ Level- 160)
10. Stephen Hawking (IQ Level- 160)
9. Albert Einstein (IQ Level 160-190)
8. Judit Polgar (IQ Level- 170)
7. Garry Kasparov (IQ Level – 190)
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)
3. Christopher Hirata (IQ Level- 225)
2. Terence Tao (IQ Level- 225-230)
1. William James Sidis (IQ Level- 250-300)
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.
