Watch: 'Genius' 4-yr-old with 140 IQ is 2nd youngest Mensa member

A four-year-old has become the UK's second youngest member of Mensa after achieving an IQ score of 140 - meaning she is officially a genius.

Little Alannah George is "obsessed" with words and numbers and taught herself how to read before ever stepping foot in a classroom.


The reception class pupil, from Iver, Bucks., would rather recite the alphabet and times tables than singing nursery rhymes.

Some notable people with the highest IQs include Albert Einstein, whose IQ score was ranked between 160-190, and Stephen Hawking (IQ score of 160).
