导读:英国四岁女孩Heidi Hankins智商达159,只比爱因斯坦和斯蒂芬·霍金低一分,而普通成年人的智商是100。Heidi的父亲是大学教授,母亲是艺术家,她两岁即可数到40、画人物画、背诗、读7岁孩子读的书。目前,Heidi已经成为世界顶级智商俱乐部门萨俱乐部的最小会员之一。



By the age of two, she could count to 40, draw pictures of people, recite poems and read books meant for seven-year-olds.

Within a year, she was adding and subtracting.

Now she is four, Heidi Hankins has an IQ of 159 – only one point below Albert Einstein’s – and has become one of the youngest members of Mensa.

She took an IQ test after nursery staff struggled to find tasks to stretch her.

And her parents Matthew, 47, a University of Southampton lecturer, and Sophy, 43, an artist, are hoping their daughter can skip a school year when she starts in September.

Heidi sat a Wechsler IQ test, which uses puzzles to measure a child’s intellectual potential.

Dr Hankins said: ‘We always thought Heidi was bright because she was reading early. I was curious about her IQ and the results were off the scale.

‘I got her the complete set of the Oxford Reading Tree books when she was two and she read through the whole set of 30 in about an hour. It’s what you would expect a seven-year-old to do. She was making noises and trying to talk literally since she was born and by age one her vocabulary was quite good. She was using full sentences almost as soon as she started to speak.’

Dr Hankins said Heidi was drawing princesses and animals aged 14 months – an age when most children can only mark the page.

And at 18 months the family found her using the computer to teach herself to read.

Heidi is a head taller than her classmates, and at 3ft 10in is closer to an average six year old. The Hankins, from Winchester, Hampshire, also have a nine-year-old son, Isaac, who is a chorister at Winchester Cathedral.
Dr Hankins said: ‘Heidi has really flourished quicker than other children – academically, artistically and physically.

‘We don’t push Heidi at all. She has taken up everything herself and teaches herself.

‘She is not precocious, she is just a little girl who likes her Barbies and Lego but then you will find her sitting down and reading a book.’

The average adult IQ score is 100 while a ‘gifted’ score is 130. John Stevenage, chief executive of British Mensa, said: ‘Heidi’s parents correctly identified that she shows great potential.'
