The Smartest People in the World


Hello, I’m just an ordinary teacher and I have a little brother who is still studying at junior high school. Every time, I always try to motivate my students and my little brother to be better and to be the smart kids. That’s why, I looked for articles about the smartest people. I hope it can be a good reference or a good model that can inspire them. And absolutely for me too.
Here are some of the smartest people in the world….
  • MUHAMMAD SABIEH ANWAR
 Dr. Prof. Muhammad Sabieh Anwar (Born 1970) is a Pakistani physicist and an electrical engineer who has made instrumental and world class research to the field of Quantum computing.

  • KIM UNG-YONG
 Kim Ung-Yong  who was born on March 7, 1963, is a Korean former child prodigy. He scored a 210 IQ on the Stanford-Binet test according to the Guinness Book of World Records. He began to learn differential calculus at the age of three. He was able to read and write in Japanese, Korean, German, and English by his fourth birthday.
At the age of four, on November 2, 1967, he solved complicated differential and integral calculus problems on Japanese television, demonstrated his proficiency in German, English, Japanese, and Korean, and composed poetry. At the age of seven he was invited to the United States by NASA.[1]. He finished his university studies, eventually getting a Ph.D in physics at Colorado State University [1] before he was 15. He got his Ph.D. in physics at Colorado State University when he was 16 years old.

  • CHRISTOPHER MICHAEL LANGAN
 Christopher Michael Langan is the smartest man in America. Langan was born in San Francisco and spent most of his early life in Montana. He began talking at six months, taught himself to read before he was four, and was repeatedly skipped ahead in school. During high school he started teaching him self, advanced physics, math, philosophy, Greek and Latin. Then he went to college but dropped out because he thought he could teach the professor more than they could teach him.
This guy has had a rough life. As a kid he was abused by other kids and even his step father because he was smarter than all of them were. For over 20 years he worked several jobs, he worked as construction worker, cowboy, forest service firefighter, and farmhand. In 2004, Langan moved with his wife Gina (née LoSasso), a clinical neuropsychologist, to northern Missouri, where he owns and operates a horse ranch. On January 25, 2008, Langan was a contestant on NBC’s 1 vs. 100, where he won $250,000.

  • MARILYN VOS SAVANT
 Marilyn vos Savan was born in St.Louis Missouri on August 11, 1946; she is an American magazine columnist, author, lecturer, and playwright who rose to fame through her listing in the Guinness Book of World Records under “Highest IQ”. She was named one of fifty “Women of the New Millennium” by the White House Vital Voices: Women in Democracy campaign. She was a winner of a “Women Making History” award from the National Women’s History Museum. Marilyn is the recipient of honorary Doctorates of Letters.
Since 1986, Marilyn has been writing the "Ask Marilyn" question-and-answer column for Parade, the Sunday magazine distributed by 379 newspapers, with a circulation of 34 million and a readership of 79 million, the largest periodical in the world. Questions from readers range from philosophical to mathematical to "just plain nuts," as Marilyn puts it. Her most recent books are Growing Up: A Classic American Childhood and The Art of Spelling, both published by W.W. Norton.

As I always say to my students and my brother, “Even though you’re not good looking, but you will be much more charming and impressive if you have intelligent brain or brilliant idea.” It’s not about how high our IQ is, but it’s about how hard we’ve tried to be smarter.
