A three-year-old boy from Durham in the United Kingdom has become the youngest member ever to join the Mensa IQ Society. Believe it or not, his 142 IQ placed him in the top 0.03% of the population! Here’s the story you’ll need to read to believe…
The Youngest Member Of Mensa Society
So who is this brand-new prodigy? Well, Muhammad Haryz Nadzim seems like an ordinary, three-year-old boy living in Durham, UK. His parents, Anira and Mohd, immigrated from Malaysia, due to their careers as engineers. However, while Muhammad acts like a normal little boy, he’s one of the smartest in the entire world!
Recently, the young boy scored an incredible 172 on one of the most infamous and hardest tests in the world, the IQ test. This score allows him to join the International Mensa IQ Society, which only those with an IQ in the top 2% can join!
What Is Mensa Society?
For those who don’t know, Mensa is one of the most exclusive IQ societies in the world. The members meet for debates, intellectual talks, and lectures that are not available to the rest of the population. As stated, in order to join, one must send in proof that their IQ falls within the 98th percentile, by taking an official IQ test. Then, to make sure, wannabe members must head to a Mensa office and take the organization’s test. Only about one-in-50 have what it takes to earn membership!
Because Nadzim is under ten years old, he had to be evaluated by a psychologist before taking Mensa’s test, a requirement by the society. After all, they want to make sure everything is above board! Of course, Nadzim passed both his psychology examination and Mensa test with flying colors! Shortly after, Mensa confirmed the little boy’s results. “He has been tested in fluid reasoning, knowledge, quantitative reasoning, visual-spatial processing and working memory which included in the Stanford-Binet IQ test,” a spokesperson from the organization said.
“He’s Just Like Other Children”
Incredibly, Nadzim exceeds at reading, math, even memorization – the three-year-old already knowns words like “terrible” and “roasted!” From the moment he said his first word, at seven-months-old, Nadzim’s parents knew he was smarter than other kids. However, they never imagined he would become the youngest member of Mensa!
By the age of two, Nadzim could read by himself and recite full stories. Still, his parents tell CNN reporters that he’s a typical three-year-old boy. “He really loves painting and reading books, really anything arts and crafts,” his mother said. “He loves playing with Legos and Play-Doh. He’s not only good at academics, but he’s just like other children who loves playing and growing up.” Most importantly, his mother said, “We know he will give so much back to society in the future.”
