According to scientific research, there are differences in IQ between people. Most people in the world have IQs between 90 and 110. Only 5 out of 1,000 people have an IQ above 140. Today I will take a look at the ten smartest people in history.

The ten smartest people in history

10. Thomas Edison

This king of invention has had perhaps the greatest impact on modern life. His inventions of the phonograph, movie camera, and electric light changed the face of the world. According to statistics, he has more than 2,000 inventions and more than 1,000 patents. Of course, don’t forget that he is not fighting alone, he has a company and a R&D team!

What is his IQ? It is said to be 160!

9. Albert Einstein

Everyone knows something about this greatest physicist since Galileo and Newton, although everyone does not understand his theory of relativity. We don’t need to know too much about the world of geniuses, we just need to be ordinary people and survive until the last episode~

What is his IQ? Some say one hundred and sixty, some say two hundred, but it is very high anyway. This level of IQ is as far away from us as the clouds in the horizon.

8. Gaussian

For this high-powered person, it was clear at a very young age how quickly he could go from one to a hundred. What I don’t know is that he invented the non-Euclidean geometry, differential geometry, hypergeometric series, and complex variable function theory that have harmed countless of our youth!

What is his IQ? It’s definitely not low. There are many jokes about Gauss’s IQ, such as: “God created the natural numbers. Everything else is Gauss’s work.” Another example: “Once Gauss got lost in the forest, so he added some edges and turned it into a tree.”

7. Evariste Galois

I have no idea what kind of god this person is. His contribution is: the founder of group theory, a branch of modern mathematics. The problem of solving algebraic equations using radical formulas was completely solved using group theory, and a whole set of theories about groups and fields were developed, which are called Galois groups and Galois theory.

Let’s put it in a simple way: This person started studying mathematics when he was 16 years old. When he was 21 years old, he was not afraid of getting hurt because of his love. He dueled with others and was killed. Before his death, he wrote down all his mathematical results on several drafts. These scratch papers are one of the fundamental pillars of contemporary algebra and number theory!

6. Galileo

What is the IQ of this Italian genius? It is said to have reached one hundred and eighty. This genius not only had an extremely high IQ, but was also a respectable fighter. Before his death, he had only one sentence: The pursuit of science requires special courage.

5. Archimedes

He said, give me a fulcrum and I can move the earth.

He really move the world, and the fulcrum was his brain.

4. Michelangelo

Finally, a literary young man has arrived. In fact, if you read on, you will find that when your IQ is extremely high, you will not play with number combinations. The master painter’s IQ is said to be as high as 180.

3. Newton

The Apple Man has seen through the universe. Because “God created the world, Newton discovered the method by which God created the world.” This Daga among Daga completed his major scientific achievements before the age of 26. Then he devoted himself to alchemy and the realm of God. By the way, this Newton once speculated in stocks and is also a senior investor. As a result, he also became a shareholder from a stock investor. It can be seen that stock trading really does not rely on IQ.

2. Nikola Tesla

It is said that he used to work in Edison’s company. His achievements include: alternating current systems, radio systems, wireless power transmission, ball lightning, turbines, amplified transmitters, particle beam weapons, solar engines, X-ray equipment, electrical energy instrumentation, missile science, remote sensing technology, aircraft, cosmic rays, radar Systems, robots…well, it could be an alien. WIFI charging is only used now, and this guy was already researching wireless transmission of energy at that time.

1. Leonardo da Vinci

The literary young man is here again, and this dear friend is by no means just a painter. Check out his draft:

This person is either a modern person who traveled through the past, or an alien! Haha, just kidding.
