Six year old Pranav Veera is believed to have an IQ higher than Einstein's, this seemingly ordinary youngster is said to have an IQ of 176 and can perform intellectual feats beyond those most adults can accomplish in a lifetime.
Pranav Veera can recite the names of the U.S. presidents in the order they served in office. He can say the alphabet backward. Give him a date back to 2000, and he’ll tell you the day of the week. He’s only 6 years old. At first glance, Pranav is a typical young boy who is highly competitive at playing Wii video games and likes to play outside. A closer look reveals he’s anything but typical."

In my opinion high IQ people usually are mentally severely disfunctional. The reason people with high I.Q.'s seem dis-functional is that when a person has an I.Q. 30 points higher than the people around them, they have nothing interesting to talk about that anyone around them would understand. Standard I.Q. tests only test for three things, spatial ability, math and linguistics, as these are the things our society places heavy emphasis on for success. In addition they measure what you know against what you should know at your age. If a child at age 6 knows as much as a child age 9, they would ... [More]

It was said in the article he had a photographic memory. The only stuff he was actually saying that would require a bit of thought were naming the dates. The rest is knowledge.

RamboIII and Oen Anderson posted really good posts....! Even though this child has an IQ more than Einstein. He is nowhere as genius as Einstein(Or maybe he will grow up to be). This child only think and remember that is in the box. But Einstein thought things and presented them to the world which were totally out of the box! I am not saying this child is dumb. He possess something only 1 out of 1000 possess, or even less. But I think his parents should encourage him to think out of the box. To think something that humanity is unaware of. But how can he!.. He is only 6.. I am sure he will thin... [More]

IMO this child has a great future ahead of him because of how his parents are handling things. Keeping some level of normal life is likely what will keep this child from going insane as an adult. I wish him nothing but greatness and that he would go as far as his goals will reach.

Since IQ tests measure your ability to retain and apply information it doesn't mean that a person is intellegent. If this kid chooses to use this ability to become a trivia buff or something prestigious is going to be interesting. I can say the alphabet backwards.

Last time I checked IQ is short for Intelligence Quotient. It certainly does measure intelligence.
