11-year-old Muslim girl beats Einstein, Stephen Hawking in Mensa IQ tests

11 year old girl IQ more than Einstein

TEHRAN, May 27 (MNA) – Tara Sharifi , 11, has scored 162 points – the highest number possible – on the Mensa IQ test, two points higher than the estimated IQs of physicist Albert Einstein and cosmologist Professor Stephen Hawking.

Scoring 162 points means that Tara is well above the so-called ‘genius benchmark’ of 140. 

“I was shocked when I got the result. I never expected to get such a good score,” she said.

Tara took the test in Oxford and had to answer questions within a set time.

Tara’s family is originally from Borazjan county in the Southern Iranian Bushehr Province.

Meanwhile, Tara now qualifies for membership of Mensa which is known as the ‘high IQ society’.

  3. BTW so called Einsteins theorys was disproved many times by so many scientists even the amateur ones. There are 1000’s of pages on the web that PROVE this.

  4. Joshua Markham You’re aware that the Muslim world was globally dominant in science and mathematics for over 600 years, right? I know you’re uneducated, but you might want to do some research before making comments like that. Though I guess given you think number of patents is somehow representative of scientific contributions, then I don’t have high hopes for you ever being an educated, thoughtful, or intelligent person.

  5. Muslim puff-piece and almost certainly, a bogus IQ test. But even if true, AND a genuine IQ test, under western exam conditions (as if) which I do not believe for 1 single second, California and Israel register more patents each each than the entire islamic world combined. So she will amount to nothing in the event this story is true, which again, i do not believe.
