Re: How Smart Is Smart


This 4 year old might be as smart as Hawking

Could 4-Year-Old Heidi Hankins Be the Next Einstein?

There are a lot of people who believe that they are smarter than almost everyone else. Usually, this idea is unsubstantiated. However, in the case of 4-year-old Heidi Hankins, the data actually backs it up. Hankins has scored an IQ of 159 – just one point beneath the estimated IQ of Albert Einstein, father of the Theory of Relativity, and comparable to the estimated IQ of Stephen Hawking, one of the most noted physicists of the modern age.

Don't insult the box of rocks Cole

When I took the IQ tests in school I scored a 142. That was a long time ago and it took about 2 hours to do.

Re: How Smart Is Smart


You're imagining me jumping out of a cake with no clothes?

Not that makes no (common) sense at all.

Re: How Smart Is Smart


High level of IQ does not testify to anything...I have IQ level of 132...I finished high school at 16.5,college at 20,was going to do masters and then PHD by 22 to beat my dad who did his by 23...realistically its just determination.

every success is 90% of work...only 10% gift/talent...i am good at learning new languages though.

I've always been an idiot. Luckily, I'm reminded on a regular basis, or I might forget.

A score of 70-79 is borderline deficiency. So I'm about twice as smart as a deficient person. She is about twice as smart as I am.

I was just trying to get a perspective on how smart she is.

She would think I am pretty dumb.
seriously, how smart do you need to be to bake me a pie and do the damn dishes
