Bibi has an IQ of 180?

Shavua tov, a good week to everyone.

Does Prime Minister Netanyahu have an IQ of 180? That's the claim here.
Business Insider lists Bibi Netanyahu seventh among “The 19 Smartest People The World Has Ever Seen.”

Citing what appears to be a reader’s comment to a Caroline Glick article (and what could be any more definitive than a reader’s comment on a Web site?), B.I. says the Israeli p.m. “is alleged to have an IQ of 180.”

Topping the list, by the way, are Microsoft’s Paul Allen, physicist Stephen W. Hawking, and chess grandmaster Robert Byrne.

It was my mother of blessed memory who would say to me, “If you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich?” (I got my sense of self-esteem from her.) Insert your own version about Bibi here.

But in an update, the author, Andrew Silow-Carroll, cites sources that say it's Ehud Barak who has the genius level IQ (yes, I find that hard to believe too).

Read the whole thing.

No doubt Obama's 4th on the list...

My experience in life, observing people all over the bell curve of IQ or intelligence potential, is that there's little if any correlation of IQ with wisdom or even common sense.

They can have high IQ, yes, as usually people who are higher politicians have, but he number IQ 180 is totally out of possibility. This level of IQ has one in 20 million people. This means, that he would be the Jew with the highest IQ. These people like Netanjahu or Ehud Barak, could be around IQ 140-150, which is rartiy 1 in 250 (IQ 140) or 1 in 2500 (IQ150). But not more. Also, this IQ 140-150 could have been reached years ago and not now, when they are old and brain get slower when being older... So ple, tell us rather truth than to lie impossible lies....p.s. the more important than IQ is anyway love, intuition, creativity, beautiful emotionality and sense to be and act wisely, IQ is only a small part of what truly intelligence is.
