The world is full of people with high intelligence. In this article I present to you five smartest people ever known and their IQ level.
1. Ainann Cowley IQ: 263
This former Irish child genius, who’s now 21, is projected to have an IQ of 263. At eight years old, he was already taking third-year chemistry courses at Singapore Polytechnic, and by the time he was nine, he’d memorized the first 518 decimal places of pi. He also seems to have a knack for entertainment, having written the script and composed music for a short film called Reflection at age 12.
2. Johann Geothe: IQ 210-225
When American electrochemical engineer Libb Thims set out to find the person with the highest IQ in history, he did so using a methodology that predicts a person’s IQ based on how much they accomplished every 10 years of their life. This came in handy when attempting to rank people who themselves predated IQ tests. Based on his own approach, Thims estimated that German Renaissance man Johann Goethe was the person with the highest IQ of all time, with a score ranging from 210 to 225. While typically labeled as a philosopher, Goethe was also an accomplished scientist and poet.
3. Christopher Langan: IQ 174-210
Routinely referred to as “the smartest man in America,” Christopher Langan is a former cowboy, current horse rancher, and an independent researcher and reality theorist. One of his signature works is his Cognition-Theoretic Model of the Universe, which he refers to as “the CTMU” and says is pronounced cat-mew. In a 2007 interview with Esquire, Langan told the magazine that it was “a true ‘Theory of Everything,’ a cross between John Archibald Wheeler’s ‘Participatory Universe’ and Stephen Hawking’s ‘Imaginary Time’ theory of cosmology'.
4. Marnen Laibow- koser: IQ 268
When Marnen Laibow-Koser was tested as a child, he was given a projected IQ of 268. Now, he’s a composer and performing musician living in Randolph, Massachusetts. He has been both playing and composing music since the age of three. In case you were wondering (and if you’re a parent, you probably are), these are the signs your child could be gifted.
5. Adragon De Mello: IQ 400
In 1988, when Adragon De Mello graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz, with a degree in computational mathematics at the age of 11, he was the youngest college graduate in the United States (a record he no longer holds). Though he was reported to have a projected IQ of 400, De Mello hasn’t been in the public eye much in the past 20 years. We do know that in 2001, when he was a 24-year-old “high-tech worker,” he took custody of his father who was dying of bladder cancer.
