Good Sunday evening to you all! It's hard to believe that Second Sunday V is next week, another month has gone by. I'll send a separate email to the people that have RSVP later this week with more information on the venue, so please be on the look out for that.
So I've been on a science kick these past few weeks, mainly reading and watching anything that deals with quantum physics and cosmology - I find all of the theories fascinating. This then made me venture off into the world of geniuses. I wanted to know what methods determine whether you are a genius or not, how their mind works, and how they have shaped our world. An average IQ ranges from a score of[masked], a genius starts at 130. Here are some famous people that have high IQ's:
1. Albert Einstein - 160
2. Charles Darwin - 130 - 140 (conflicting reports)
3. Stephen Hawking - 160
4. James Woods - 170 (YES, the actor!)
...and then there is this man Christopher Langan, a former bouncer, construction worker, and body builder who came up with the Cognitive - Theoretical Model of the Universe has an IQ of 210. In the YouTube video that I've included on him, you'll be able to see that the man is brilliant - quite brilliant, and___ cocky, quite cocky.
This brought me to Daniel Goleman's TED talk on IQ and compassion. After watching it, it made me realize that smart doesn't always equal good.
Oh and if anyone was wondering if I took the IQ test - Yes, I did.
