As women we often feel undervalued, and that’s not just in our head, it happens every day. Men still get higher paying jobs, women are still being discriminated against and viewed as the weaker gender. There’s also a ridiculous assumption that women aren’t as smart as men, which is just insane. We’re intelligent, we’re driven, we’re hard workers and we can do great things when given the opportunity. So keeping that in mind we decided to write about the smartest women with the highest IQ on earth. But first let’s have a breakdown of what IQ numbers even mean. So average IQ is about 90-109. University students generally have an IQ of 115-124 which is above average. People with IQ of 124-144 are considered to be gifted or highly gifted accordingly. Those with IQ of 145-164 are considered to be Genius, these are the people that win Nobel Prizes. After that geniuses are divided into High Genius (165-179), Highest Genius (180-200) and then 200 and above is considered to be Immeasurable Genius.
1. Fabiola Mann
This girl is only 21 and she scored 162 on an IQ test. She says she didn’t expect to score that high, but it was a very welcome surprise. She likes playing guitar, enjoys martial arts, loves playing chess and hopes to study Medicine in Cambridge. We think with a score of 162 (which is actually 2 points above Einstein) we can expect great things from her in the future.
2. Olivia Manning
Olivia was only 12 when she scored 162 on her IQ test. That is incredibly high for someone of her age. In fact, there’s adults who won Nobel Prizes whose IQ isn’t that high. We’re pretty sure she’s a young prodigy and she’s going to achieve great things in life.
3. Manahel Thabet
Manahel Thabet is the youngest person to receive a financial engineering Ph.D. magna cum laude. She was 25 at the time. She got her first degree at the University of Illinois and has since worked towards a second Ph.D. in quantum mathematics. In 2012 she did something incredible, she came up with an incredible and revolutionary 350-page formula to calculate distance in space without the use of light. Her IQ score is 168.
4. Judit Polgar
This lady is one of the smartest people in the world, and we’re not making this up, she literally made that list, it’s one of her titles. Her IQ score is 170 and she’s became a chess Grandmaster at an early age of 15.
5. Marie Curie
People are considered to be very smart and incredibly lucky if they win one Nobel Prize in their lifetime. Well, this Franco-Polish woman won two. One for physics in 1903 and one for chemistry in 1911. This lady was very interested in radioactivity and spend a lot of her time working in that field. Marie was an incredibly smart and intelligent women and her work basically helped to shape the world we live in today. Her IQ score was 185 – which makes her a Highest Genius.
6. Marilyn vos Savant
Marilyn is a writer and columnist and she’s famous for her intelligence. Her IQ score is 190, which is so high it granted her a place in the Guinness Book Of Records. She has her own column called “Ask Marilyn” where she likes to answer tricky questions and solve complicated puzzles. See you don’t exactly have to be a scientist, you have an a super high IQ and have a relatively normal job.
7. Edith Stern
Edith Stern is a unique woman. Not only is her IQ score 200 and above, which gives her the status of immeasurable genius, but it’s also her upbringing that played a role. It’s hard to say if this lady was worn a genius or if it was her father who made her one. She is what many like to call a forced genius. Basically Edith’s father had a goal to make sure his daughter grew up to be super smart so he started teaching her from a very early age. She could talk in complete sentences by the age of 1, she read the first volume of Encyclopedia Britannica at the age of 4 and a half and by 5 she read all of them. She got multiple degrees before she even reached 18 and she has multiple lifetime achievement awards in the field of engineering.
