Does anyone know who I had in mind?
Wouldn’t it be George Bu$h? But 90 is too far on the high side.

We were thinking about the brightest person in class making a 75, and the instructor calling that a "perfect" 100, based on the curve.

IQ is old, what about EQ? It's more interesting, but difficult to measure. Is the OP claiming to be a genius? What you do with it is more important.

They say left handed people have higher IQs, Einstein was left handed. How could he do that in those days with mice that are right handed? Maybe he had a touch screen instead?
