11 Year Old Autistic Boy Gets Highest Possible IQ Score, Beating Albert Einstein by Fira09(m): 9:09am On Aug 29, 2022
An 11 year old boy Kevin Sweeney has achieved a higher IQ score than two of the world’s most famous geniuses, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

Sweeney, who has autism, has ‘always been really clever’ according to his parents. He knew the periodic table at the age of six and could read before he had even started primary school.

Being a fan of quizzes and game shows, Kevin took the Mensa IQ test at the Quaker Meeting House in Edinburgh, and scored 162.

Stephen Hawking has an IQ of 160 and, although Albert Einstein never officially took an IQ test, scientists believe his to be the same.

Kevin has now been invited to join Mensa the world’s oldest high IQ society.

His dad Eddie Sweeney, 40, told how Kevin had been the only child taking the test that day.

Eddie said: ‘We thought he might get overwhelmed being with all adults, but he was just chatting away to everyone saying: “Hi, I’m Kevin.”

‘It’s amazing. We are so proud and Kevin is over the moon. Kevin was running round the garden when he got the results.

‘It meant a lot more to him than we imagined it would. We hope this is a great boost for him.

‘Life has its challenges for Kevin, and we really want to help maximise his potential and give him every opportunity in life.

‘We always told people he’s a genius, and I don’t use that word lightly.’

Eddie and mum Laura, 39, said Kevin is able to answer all the questions on The Chase, Who Wants to Be A Millionaire and Only Connect

Eddie said: ‘(Kevin) got the £250,000 question correct even before the options came up.

‘When another show asked about the cost of a bus fare in Harry Potter, he was adamant the answer they gave was wrong.

‘He went upstairs, found the right page in the right book within seconds and proved he was right – the film version had used a different price.’

But the parents say Kevin’s biggest passion is music as he sings and plays the chanter, piano and guitar.

Albert Einstein was not famous for his intelligent quotient, it was his unimaginable inventions and contributions to the world of modern science that made him what we know him to be today! you might have a higher IQ than Einstein but yet not known, but can have a lower IQ yet have an incredible solutions to issues of life!

Most of these kids on the autism spectrum have their brains working on overdrive.

They are so smart....

It's always fun working with them with their funny characters and the different noises they make lol..

There's a particular time of the day when their noise go a tempo higher and if they are up to 5 at that time na different performance you go dey hear and see...i love dem though..

The naughty ones dey naughty finish sha...long time ago na so one carry my charger and AirPods go flush...

It was my fault though because I let my guards down even when I was aware of his behavioural pattern.

I look the guy I no know wetiI to do...i just shake my head.

Autism again. It seems to be the mark of genius not really a challenge any more. It's one thing to have a great IQ, it's another thing to make great impact on the world. Einstein growing up was termed the School's dunce because he was not considered bright by the indices of then education. But he grew up to revolutionize the way we view the world. His theory of Relativity led to the manufacture of atomic bomb.

Poor boy, hard life ahead of him. I trust Oyibo people to put pressure on him to make sure his achievement surpass Albert Einstein.

Meanwhile I took this IQ test several years ago, the test score was 187, but Oyibo people did not announce it. Instead they accused me of cheating and ban me from ever taking the test. Bunch of racist.

Awesome
I pray his high Iq contributes meaningfully to the existence of mankind!

Some of these suicide bumbers, rapists, looters in government, kidnappers and more had even much higher IQ than Albert Einstein but today are a reproach to their immediate society and beyond.


ORIGINAL SIN!

Meanwhile, somewhere in the West, an old grandpa was a pro in drugs business at the age of 11. Reason why his primary school is not known to anyone and he cert is a mystery yet unraveled.

If not high IQ how then can one arrive at
E=MC2?
Incredible Problem solving abilities and inventions start from a root that connects with high intelligence that can make complex calculations within stipulated time.
The coinage IQ might not have been in place during Albert Einstein but all indications show the parameters were there.
