IQ (Intelligent Quotient) is a numerical score. It is based on regulated tests created to measure human intelligence. Every person on this planet has a complicated mind. Some people are considerably smarter than others. They are more mindful about everything occurring around them and their brain can understand such things which others can’t. Such individuals can go over the boundaries of a normal human being and accomplish wonders. These people are considered as brilliant and they possess higher IQ. They have the ability to get, evaluate and hold any information in a profound level with high speed in comparison to normal people.
Below is the list of 10 people with the highest IQ in the world:

Ainan was born in 1999 in Singapore. He is a child wonder and wunderkind in mathematics, biology, chemistry and computer programming. He delivered his first public lecture in the age of 6. When he was 7 years old he cleared GCSE Chemistry and studied laboratory based chemistry modules. In the age of 9 he was well versed with periodic table and narrated pie to 518 decimal places. He succeeds his first film when he was 12 years old. That was premiered at “Vilnius International Film Festival”. He created, wrote, supervised and edited the Sempiternal at the age of 13.

He was the youngest ever gold medalist in mathematics Olympiads. He worked as an assistant researcher at Princeton University and was rewarded a Sloan postgraduate fellowship. He was also prized his doctorate for his thesis “Three Regularity Results in Harmonic Analysis”. The Australian mathematician was presented a “Fields Medal” for his offerings to additive number theory, harmonic analysis, combinatorics and partial differential equations. Theory of Partial differential equations was his major field. He also conspired with Ben Green (British mathematician) to reveal that the prime numbers include arithmetic progression of any length. His awards include Salem Prize, Bocher Prize, Clay research Award and a MacArthur fellowship.
Christopher Michael Hirata (IQ 225)

In 1999 he collaborated to form the Mega Foundation (a nonprofit corporation). This organization was outlined for individuals with IQ score 160 or more to start programs that help in the progress of extremely gifted people and their opinions. In combination with his idea “Theory of Everything” he insisted that “you can prove the presence of God, The Soul and the afterlife” with mathematics.
Philip Emeagwali (IQ 190)
Nigerian American Philip (discoverer of speedy computer of the world) was born in 1954. He was also known as “calculus” because of his mathematical skills. He faced many difficulties after Nigerian Civil war. Philip worked on oil discovery issue utilizing a supercomputer. He is a computer scientist and was considered smarter than Einstein and second considerable brilliance in mathematics. He is also known as the “father of the Internet”. He illustrated a cheap and practical method to make computers to speak with each other and participate all over the world. He attained distributed computing discoveries which helped the creation of the internet. He got a Gordon Bell Prize (Nobel Prize of Computing) from the institution of electronics and electrical engineers.
Garry Kasparov (IQ 190-195)
Garry Kasparov is a chess veteran of Russian origin. He was born in 1963. At the age of 15 he first qualified for the Soviet Chess Championship. He was the youngest player at that level ever.

Stephen Hawking (IQ 160)
Stephen was lived from 1942 to 2018. He was a popular physicist. He was famous for his well known science books. His most popular book was “A brief history of time” (published in 1998). This book was one of the best sold books in all over the world (10 million books sold). In this book “A brief history of time” he explained his discovery about theoretical physics including the creation of big explosion in the space “Big Bang”. This book made him famous and helped his work in theoretical physics to be acknowledged. He also worked with space time uniqueness. His last book was “brief answers to the big questions”. In this book he replied 10 immense questions he was asked during his whole life.
