An intelligence quotient (IQ) is a total score derived from several standardized tests designed to assess human intelligence. The abbreviation “IQ” was coined by the psychologist William Stern for the German term Intelligenzquotient, IQ is nothing but the number that a person scores after taking one of the many standardized tests to measure the intelligence level of individuals. The general score of 95% of the population from these tests ranges between 70 and 130. Since there are quite a few different classifications, the Stanford-Binet Scale of Human Intelligence is the most commonly used one and we shall use that as a reference. According to this scale, people who have a score higher than 145 are considered geniuses.
List of 5 top people with highest IQ:
- William James Sidis (IQ – 250-300)
- Kim Ung-Yong (IQ – 210)
- Christopher Hirata (IQ – 225)
- Marilyn Vos Savant (IQ – 228)

Q5: What is link between deaf and dumb?
When a child is born, is he able to speak from day one? No of course. The child can only produce sounds for the time being. He gradually learn from his mother how to speak some words when he heard her speak, he also learn some words from his siblings by the time he reach four years old, the child will be able to speak and pronounce some words.
There is what we call trilingual deaf person; someone who was born with a hearing loss, or whose hearing loss occurred before they began to speak. Infants usually start saying their first words around one year. Therefore a prelingually deaf typically was either born deaf or lost their hearing before age one (the age when most hearing loss in children occurs). Congenital (present at birth) hearing loss is also considered prelingually, since a newborn infant has not acquired speech and language.
When a child loss his sense of hearing, he cannot hear sound even if his parents speak to him, he will not understand and even if he does, he will not know how to pronounce the world and even if he try, you will only hear him say blah blah. Those of us who are able to speak is because we were born hearing and loss our hearing a year or more years later.
Using the word “mute” or “dumb” is not the right word to use in referring to someone who couldn’t speak. Those people can make a sound, you might not hear it or it might not make a meaning…..but they have their own language in which they express their feelings. We deaf use sign language to understand and communicate with each other. With sign language and interpreters, there is nothing we cannot do because each one of us have our God-given talent.
Q6: What is Down syndrome and Moonfaced?
Down syndrome (DS or DNS), also known as trisomy 21, is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all or part of a third copy of chromosome 21. It is typically associated with physical growth delays, characteristic facial features and mild to moderate intellectual disability.
Moon facies, or moon face, is a medical sign in which the face develops a rounded appearance due to fat deposits on the sides of the face. It is often associated with Cushing’s syndrome or steroid treatment (especially corticosteroids), which has led to it being known as Cushingoid facies (“Cushings-like face”).
