Smarter than Einstein?
Albert Einstein likely never took an IQ test but is estimated to have a 160 IQ—but even that can’t stand up to these masterminds.
1. Jacob Barnett: IQ 170
Jacob Barnett was diagnosed with moderate to severe autism at two years old, and doctors predicted he’d never learn to tie his own shoes.
Needless to say, he’s mastered dressing himself. The American child prodigy finished grades six through twelve in less than a year, then went to college at age ten.
He was a published physicist by the time he was 13.
Now he’s working toward his PhD at age 19.
