i didnt understand the basics of the universe until i was 11, but talking about reproductive cycles of penguins at 2 years old is quite special a 2 year old could just be watching the right movies and docs and copying them to talk about reproductive cycles. if he got into specifics that might be different.

He does sound like a bright kid, but IQ at 2 years doesn't mean much since IQ is generally measured as what you know divided by how old you are... You are exactly correct. If a ten year old knows what a sixteen year old is expected to know his I.Q. would be considered to be 160 by the standard tests. I.Q. tests only test three of the 180 known intelligences, spatial, linguistics, and math. If this child scored 160 at age 2 years 5 months 11 days, then he knows about what you might expect a four year old to know. I for one am unimpressed!

Generally speaking, Guilfords 180 seperate "cubes" of intellect represent 180 different intellectual abilities. However, one would have to be completely closed-minded to reject the notion that several of Guilford's cubes are closely related. The most often referred to theory of multiple intelligen... [More]
