Two-year-old Has The Same IQ As Einstein

Oscar Wringley. Image: Daily MailA two-year-old from Britain has become the youngest boy to ever be accepted into Mensa.

Oscar Wrigley, who has an IQ of at least 160 (the same as Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking), has been ranked in the 99.99th percentile of the population and has been ranked off the scale as the Stanford-Binet test cannot measure higher than 160.

Oscar’s father Joe, 29, an IT specialist from Reading in Berkshire, said: “Oscar was recently telling my wife about the reproductive cycle of penguins.

“He is always asking questions. Every parent likes to think their child was special but we knew there was something particularly remarkable about Oscar.

“I’m fully expecting the day to come when he turns around and tells me I’m an idiot.”

This toddler certainly is extremely intelligent, but in a completely different way to Einstein. Einstein himself had early speech difficulties, whilst Oscar is clearly a child genius. So do you think that IQ tests are worthwhile, or just a measure of someone’s ego? Do they have value in the real world? Let us know.
