Top 10 Smartest People Known to Man Rated by IQ

Evidently, "intelligence" is a concept that needs relativity. To begin with, we would have to reflect on the criteria that define this concept, which in turn are closely linked to the cultural map and the psychosocial patterns from which we understand our immediate reality. And since these criteria are inevitably subjective, then we could say that intelligence is, to some extent, an arbitrary concept.
According to the Intellectual Quotient scale, 50% of the world population oscillates around 90 and 110 points, while only 2.5% exceeds 120, and only 0.5% reaches the border of 140. F
