What is Genius IQ and do YOU have the IQ of a genius?
What is a genius IQ? You may have taken an I.Q. test and be curious how your IQ score compares to
genius IQ scores. Fair enough. It's a good question. We all want to know how we measure up
to the best, and in this case, the brightest.
In The Complete Guide To Genius, a new system for training ordinary people
to attain genius IQ-levels of intelligence (see genius training), this is how IQ scores are broken down:
IQ score | Type of person with that score
| Mentally handicapped individual
| High school pupil/Minimum wage worker
90-110 | Degree
student/Decorator/High street worker/Joiner
| Masters student/Manager/Journalist/Accountant/Professional
| PhD student/Ivy league or Russel group student/Chief Executive
University professor/Top government official/Gifted individual
| Rhodes Scholar/Army General
170+ | Genius
So we can see from this that genius IQ is considered to be 170 and over. (Click link

The Greatest Genius IQ?
Contender Number 1: Mega-Genius!
The greatest genius I.Q. score is alleged to have been achieved by Jim Diamond, aka "Mega-Genius". His
score of 200+ was achieved under the strictest conditions and using the best IQ testing system in the world.
Comparisons with other great geniuses of history are supposed to reveal that his genius IQ surpasses that of such
greats as Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, Bach, Sir Isaac Newton and a host of others. To be honest, when I
first heard about 'the man with the perfect IQ', I thought he was probably a charlatan. However, I recently ordered
his Genius Formula CDs and having listened to disk 1 just yesterday, I'm convinced this man has genius I.Q. and
knows more about what having a genius I.Q. really entails than anyone else I've read about or heard of.
The Biggest Genius IQ?
Contender Number 2: Marilyn vos Savant
Hmm, seems we have another claimant to the highest-genius-IQ-ever throne. According to the biography
blurb on her website, Parade columnist Marilyn vos Savant was listed in the Guinness Book of
World Records for five years under "Highest IQ" for both childhood and adult scores. Her book, Brain
Power: The 12-Week Mental Training Program, claims that Marilyn 'has an IQ of 230, the highest ever
measured.' That sounds like quite a genius IQ to me!
Here is another Genius-IQ breakdown according to the WECHSLER ADULT
INTELLIGENCE SCALE (which Mega-Genius refers to as the best -- remember he was off the charts at over 200
Genius IQ), with IQ range of 20-to-130+:
WECHSLER ADULT INTELLIGENCE SCALE
Intelligence testing is a form of psychological testing of an individual's capacity
to learn and deal effectively with his/her environment. IQ (intelligence quotient) is the score of
an intelligence test. Genius IQ is revealed in the highest scores.
The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale is the most widely used individually
administered intelligence test (IQ test) for adults. It comprises of 11 subtests made up of six
verbal subtests and five performance subtests. It yields three IQ (intelligence quotient) scores:
Verbal Scale IQ, Performance Scale IQ, and Full Scale IQ.
