Above are the few out of many, who hails the title of having more IQ than Einstein. But we also cannot ignore the fact like we mentioned earlier, that the scient giant was never tested. Besides, the numbers are purely normative—the test taker’s performance is scored against the average of the same age group which is based on a series of tests that usually concentrate on pattern recognition, logic and problem-solving ability.
