    The fact you have to actually ask me that is astonishing.

    The maths feats sound impressive, but the IQ thing a little naff. How can a standardised test determine exceptionality; Richard Feynman's IQ was "only" 125 and I'm pretty sure that Albert Einstein's IQ was just an estimate.

    PS. We need to get this guy onto the student room

    My IQ is 164.

    Damn, beaten by a 12 year old

    funny how our surnames are the same though.. hmmm :eek:

    Why am I being negged for this?

    That is my IQ, I've done 2 official tests and thats my average of the two, which in my opinion is a fair reflection.

    Plus he does have the same surname as me.
    Because your IQ is relative to your age you fool.

    I'm not trying to steal the glory of a 12 year old, but to be honest, a lot of people like that probably exist but just aren't introduced and brought up to study calculus etc. from a young age, because the parents are probably normal and don't recognise the child's potential or don't know what to do with it.

    Even if the parents are smart, the chances that a) they will have a child who is insanely smart, combined with the chances that b) they will recognise his potential, and c) they will act upon it, are extremely low, which is why we rarely hear of these kind of stories

    ok fine I am jealous douche
    No, I feel that you have a point; most parents would be happy for their children to just be doing well compared with their age group and let them do normal kid's stuff when not at school and allow their childs teachers to develop them academically. I guess his Aspergers led him to seek out these things for himself.

    Don't worry, I'm sure he's going to prove far more useful than you'll ever be.

    I am keen to know about his version of relativity too.
    Does it co-relate gravity and the rest of the three forces fundamentally ? does it even surpass the spacetime curvature singularity? Then we shall call it an achievement.

    Knowing bucket-load of information isn't that hard but making out a theory ( take Einstein for example: his view of space time totally revolutionized our perception) is worth being amazed.

    I personally think intellect is controlled by various factors one being genetic and other environmental. In his case both the latter and former gave him enough time to perhaps contain all this info. I.e for most of us at that age we would be playing games/discovering puberty and so on....
    Just a thought.

    Theoretical physicist Richard Feynman only had an IQ of 125 and he without a doubt had one of the greatest minds which ever walked the earth.

    Sure if you have a high iq, you are probably quite clever, but it isn't the full picture.

    I see these IQ stories everynow and again in the media, and they are obviously being used to make you feel like an insignificant little gnat.

    They provide an income for psychologists who otherwise would be living in the gutter.

    Reminds me of a really bad joke: people say I have the mind of a 12 year old, and yes they're right it's under my bed...

    Wow that was bad.

    True. For now we simply don't know how our brain stores all the information so to generalize human intelligence over a set of numbers is being plain arrogant .
