Ask A Genius 245 – Ultra-High IQ

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

July 31, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: Why?  How?

Rick Rosner: I’ve taken more than thirty tests to measure ultra-high IQ, and have gotten the highest score ever earned on more than twenty of them.  Nobody has that huge record of maxing out all of these high-end IQ tests.

The most that anybody else has done is two or three or five.  Where they get the highest score ever.  I don’t know if anybody would even doubt it’s high.  I would think that other’s people’s claim to their IQ’s generally rest on one or two really good performances on an IQ test.

Mine rests on my performance across dozens of tests.  And decades of messing around with these tests.
