Albert Einstein is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest and most influential physicists of all time.

Best known for developing the theory of relativity, he is amongst the top most geniuses the world has recognized. Einstein never took an IQ score test.

However, based on his historical records, academics have estimated his score to be around 160.

Here are 5 child prodigies who have an IQ same or even higher than Albert Einstein.

1. Rishi Shiv Prasanna​

Rishi Shiv Prasanna is an eight-year-old genius from Bengaluru with an IQ of 180, way higher than Einstein’s estimated IQ of 160. Prasanna has already mastered coding and even became one of the youngest Google-certified Android developers.

Recently, he was felicitated with the Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar 2023 by President Droupadi Murmu, for developing three apps for the Android app store.

For the little genius, reading is an essential exercise. “You can only gain knowledge when you read a lot of books. When you study you get answers to all the questions and there will be no fear in answering any kind of question. If you do not read a book every two hours, then you will be illiterate for the next four hours. I want to be a scientist in the future and wish to contribute to society and the country,” he said during an interaction programme in Mysuru last year.

When she was 8 years old in November 2019, Adhara Pérez, Mexico City native, made headlines for getting an IQ score of 162.

At age 3, Pérez was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, which is a part of the autism spectrum. Since she has difficulty interacting with others because of the disorder, she was mocked at by other students at school. Pérez then fell into a “very deep” depression, according to her mom, not wanting to go to school anymore.

Her mom was aware of her daughter’s unusual smartness at home, so she changed her daughter’s education plan and took her through therapy. Soon, the girl’s extremely high IQ was identified.
