6. Kim Ung-Yong – physics student at age three
When he was just 3 years old, Kim Ung-Yong began taking lectures as a guest physics student at the Hanyang University in South Korea. It wasn’t long before the world found out about his incredible intelligence and so, by the age of 8, NASA flew him over to the United States for studies. The man was born in 1962, and he is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the person with the highest IQ in the world: 210! And if that doesn’t tell you much, maybe you’ll be amazed by the fact that Kim Ung-Yong spoke at just 4 months of age, and by the age of 2, he could already read in Japanese, Korean, German and English.
7. William James Sidis: Smartest Man Of All Times
When he was just 8 years old, William James Sidis proved that he was a mathematical genius as he developed a new logarithm table based on the number 12. One year later, he was holding lectures at Harvard University. He enrolled at Harvard when he was 11 years old, and graduated at the age of 16 suma cum laude. The man is considered to be the smartest man to ever live, with an estimated IQ score of 250-300. He wrote four original works of his own before he was seven, and he was fluent in 8 different languages. Unfortunately, somewhere along the line, he lost his spunk… no one knows why.
