4-year-old genius girl Heidi Hankins has 159 IQ, a point beneath IQ of Albert Einstein

There are a lot of people who believe that they are smarter than almost everyone else. Usually, this idea is unsubstantiated. However, in the case of 4-year-old Heidi Hankins, the data actually backs it up.

Heidi Hankins has scored an IQ of 159 – just one point beneath the estimated IQ of Albert Einstein, father of the Theory of Relativity, and comparable to the estimated IQ of Stephen Hawking, one of the most noted physicists of the modern age.

Yet scientists say the score shouldn’t be seen as a necessary indicator that Hankins is born for greatness.

Frank Lawlis, the supervisory psychologist for American Mensa, told Livescience that the 4-year-old doesn’t mean smarter than the other age group. In fact, IQ scores in general have been rising over time. “This is kind of a theoretical thought,” Lawlis added, “but one day we may all be as smart as Einstein, and then Einstein would become average.”
