Georgia Brown – Child Genius

Georgia Brown is 2 years old, cute and adorable but she has one quality that sets her apart from all the other cute and adorable 2 year olds; she is a genius. She is also the youngest girl member of Mensa, the largest, oldest, and best-known high-IQ society in the world. In order to become a member of Mensa you must score in the top 2% in an approved standardized intelligence test. Georgia scored 152 on her IQ test putting her in the top 0.2 percent of the population. This score earned her an invitation to become a member of Mensa.

Georgia’s parents Lucy and Martin Brown have always regarded her as a quick learner, some of her early accomplishments include:

  • Crawling at 5 months
  • Walking at 9 months
  • Dressing herself at 14 months
  • Speaking fluently at 18 months

Recognizing Georgia’s advanced skills, her mother contacted Professor Joan Freeman, a specialist educational psychologist, for advice. Professor Freeman applied the standard Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale test to Georgia and was amazed to find this was too limited to map her creative abilities. “She swept right through it like a hot knife through butter.”

“In one test I asked her to draw a circle and she did it so perfectly.

“Most adults would struggle to do that. Her circle was near to being perfect.

“It shows she can physically hold a pen well but also that she understands the concept of a circle.”

Georgia is the youngest of 5 children. Her mother, the chief executive of a charity, thinks that she had benefited from having older siblings. “She has been absorbing information from her older brothers and sisters and father, a self-employed carpenter, while not receiving any special treatment.”

But don’t think that Georgia is an adult in a little girl’s body. She still acts like any normal 2 year old according to her Mom:

“She still has temper tantrums, like you wouldn’t believe, throwing herself on the floor. She doesn’t think she’s better and cleverer than everyone else. She is a very kind and loving child.”

    Maybe her case isn’t limited to her level of IQ. I would also love to hear about how her telepathic performance is.

    Its great that she is so smart but at such a tender age what becomes of it, only time will tell. Lets think about how many could have beens and should have beens that never made it. Child actors that never paned out, I wish only the best to this young woman but from infant to adult is a long way off. I can only pray that this now shining star has the radince to shine all the way to an adult life, that hopefully she has something to better man kind in a profound way, if not then what a waste.

  13. Dressing herself at 14 months and Speaking fluently at 18 months? That is awesome, indeed a genius.

  14. Saw a documentary about Georgia on CBC (Canada) last night. The mother cried when she read the notice that Georgia wasn’t accepted into a high end school. Confused little Georgia hugged and said comforting words to her mother. Children shouldn’t be comforting adults — it should be the other way around. That mother should get some psychotherapeutic counseling before she emotionally screws up that wonderful little child.
