Who has the highest recorded IQ in history?

  • Stephen Hawking
  • Albert Einstein
  • William James Sidis
  • Terence Tao correct

    Both Hawking and Einstein have been recorded as having IQ's under a 200 score. It has actually been noted that had William Sidis taken an IQ test, it would have probably been around a 300 but he didn't so it doesn't count. The actual highest IQ score belongs to Terrence Tao, a math professor at UCLA who scored himself an impressive 230! Of course, no one has had the heart to tell USC that information yet.
