Written by Jae Jones

Did you know a two-year-old became the youngest member of the Mensa in 2013? Young Adam Kirby took an IQ test which ranked him smarter than President Barack Obama and the British Prime Minister David Cameron. Kirby has read Shakespeare, and has learned 3 different languages. He is a super-intelligent little person with the IQ of 141. His points are an amazing 10 points higher than the two most powerful leaders of the world.

Adam’s intelligence was quickly discovered by his parents when he read a book on potty training and trained himself.  He did this at the age of one. “Adam’s other impressive abilities include being able to spell 100 words, reciting most of his times tables up to 10, learning the periodic table and mastering a map-of-the-world puzzle designed to challenge adults.  After receiving his IQ test results, he was invited to join the world’s oldest and most prestigious genius society Mensa.” (DailyCaller) Here’s a  look at what Kirby could do at just 29 months:

Father Dean, is an IT consultant from Mitcham, London, said, his son’s abilities are outstanding and that they had been working to develop his intelligence since he was 10 weeks old. While most children were just learning to crawl or stand, Adam was already reading and deciphering books.

Little Kirby’s score is only four points away from being in the “Genius “category. The Stanford-Binet exam, originally developed by French psychologist Alfred Binet, has become renowned for being able to accurately determine a child’s intelligence levels and predict future grades.
