2-Year-Old With IQ Of 160
A two-year-old girl has been found to have an IQ of 160, making her among the top 0.03 per cent of the population in Britain.
Karina Oakley was asked to question numbers and complete challenges in several different categories, including verbal ability, memory, handling a pencil and numbers and shapes.
Some of the answers showed a “wonderful imagination”, according to Prof Joan Freeman, the child psychologist who used the Stanford-Binet IQ intelligence test.
When asked, ‘What do you use your eyes for?’ Karina answered: ‘You close them when you go to sleep’ and then also said: ‘You put your contact lenses in them’.
Karina, from Guildford, Surrey, has an IQ 60 points above the mean for the population.
