Little fighter is a Little Einstein - four year old Thai joins Mensa

A four year old Thai girl has been accepted into the society of brain-boxes - Mensa.

 

Little Thitika Thaweeyot has an IQ of 135 only five points short of Albert Einstein who was 140.

 

But the girl known as "Nong Oom", who is in kindergarten at an international school in the Bang Na area of Bangkok, has not had an easy life so far.

 

After she was born she was diagnosed with the heard condition PPHN (persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn) and had to spend 67 days in hospital.

 

At one point her heart stopped and she had to be resuscitated, reported Sanook.

 

Her mother started a Facebook page called "Little Fighter" to raise awareness about the disease.

 

Now Oom is well on the way to her dream of being a marine biologist or a vet!

 

She posted on the member page of Mensa that she loves the ocean - even though she can't swim yet.

 

Most people's IQ falls in the 90 to 110 range.

 

Mensa was started in Oxford in the UK in 1946 and membership would only be available to around 2% of the human population, said Sanook.

If  you do enough IQ tests probability will eventually get you a higher score than Einstein.

 

It's just a question of guessing the right answers.

Agree with this. I doubt Einstein's IQ was 140. There are different tests and IQ measurement will vary according to the test, the day, the time of day.

 

Good luck to the little kid, though as someone else noted, having a high IQ in Thailand is a recipe for being bullied. 130 isn't even particularly high on the global scale, though it is stratospheric for Thailand. I grow truly weary of Thai this and Thai that - always big-noting themselves.

I bet Nong Oom IQ is more than the 2 P combined.

Einstein never did an IQ test, but it is estimated that it would have been 160, same as Bill Gates, and technically the highest score someone can achieve on paper.
