12-Year Old Girl Totally Aces Mensa IQ Test, Beats Scores Of Einstein And Hawking

Most 12-year olds are out playing hopscotch, screaming about Harry Styles and braiding hair… most, but not all.


Lydia Sebastian, a 12-year-old British girl, has joined the elite class of achievers who have earned the highest possible score on a Mensa IQ test. And when I say elite, I really mean it… Einstein and Hawking, y’all.


Lydia, who has read all seven Harry Potter books three times, scored a 162 on the Cattell III B paper test administered by Mensa, the elite group of those with the highest IQs. According to the Guardian, the girl pressed her parents all year to allow her to take the intelligence test, which she took during her school break.


Sebastian completely downplayed the super tough exam–going so far as to call it “easy.”
“At first, I was really nervous but once I started, it was much easier than I expected it to be and then I relaxed, she said. “I gave it my best shot really,” she said.


Stephen Hawking is yet to comment on Lydia’s score, but it’s expected he will have to challenge the youngster to the ultimate pub quiz in order to see who can officially be crowned the ‘Brain of Britain’.

    Does it mean anything for people with high IQ in their lifes? I see in my environment many such people and actually they have problems with many areas in their lives and that more after measurable inteligence there are no following outcomes for them, society etc. AFAIK most inventive people were not very inteligent. The real strenght seems to come from mindset and attitude.

    Yes, where are these high IQ save the world folks. What do the high IQ folk accomplish? In truth, anybody can for instance figure out Einstein’s theory of Special Relativity entirely on their own, if they just put their mind to it. So what is a high IQ good for ?
