Smartest people on earth – Libb Thims, an American electrochemical engineer, introduces to us, geniuses exhibiting IQ scores beyond 200. They also possessed a heightened inclination, strong aptitude or marked capacity related to a particular area!
Smartest people on earth
1 – The German polymath and literary artist, Johann Goethe (IQ = 210-225) founded the Science of Human Chemistry and offered one of the earliest known theories of evolution, too.
2 – German scientific philosopher and theoretical physicist, Albert Einstein (IQ = 205-225), is famed for his Theory of Relativity and his mass-energy equivalence formula, which is, E = mc2.
3 – Italian Leonardo da Vinci’s (IQ = 180-220) was a musician, sculptor, painter, writer, architect, cartographer, engineer, mathematician, botanist and geologist! His technological innovations included adding machines, flying machines, concentrated solar power and the armoured vehicle.
4 – English mathematician and physicist, Sir Isaac Newton (IQ = 190-200) discovered the Law of Gravity.
5 – Scottish mathematician and physicist, James Maxwell (IQ = 190-205), founded the Quantum Theory and formulated the Theory of Electromagnetic Radiation.
6 – German mathematician and physicist, Rudolf Clausius (IQ = 190-205) formulated the Second Law of Thermodynamics, the Kinetic Theory of Gases and coined the term, ‘entropy’.
7 – Polish astronomer and mathematician, Nicolaus Copernicus (IQ = 160-200) used his heliocentric model of the universe to prove that the Sun was the centre of the Solar System.
8 – German logician and philosopher, Gottfried Leibniz (IQ = 182-205) invented differential and integral calculus.
9 – American William Sidis (IQ = 200-300) could read The New York Times when he was barely two years old, as well as type in English and French. At the respective ages of 9 and 11, he was admitted to Tuft University and Harvard University!
10 – English physicist and physician, Thomas Young (IQ = 185-200) discovered how the lens of the human eye focuses on distant objects by changing shape frequently, how the eye perceives colours, and the cause of astigmatism.
These are Smartest people on earth – Libb Thims’ rankings may be deemed as accurate for he took recourse to the Cox Methodology of rating IQ scores (sum total of people’s accomplishments, every decade of their lives) and also evaluated each individual’s work performance over the years.
