(full title)The Essex blonde Towie fan who's officially smarter than Albert Einstein! Lauren, 16, scores a whopping 161 on IQ test

Lauren Marbe, 16, wants to 'blow away' the negative view of Essex girls

Planning to study A-Levels and hopefully applying to Cambridge

But she loves watching trash TV, having blonde highlights and manicures

Her dream is to become a West End Star like idol Denise Van Outen

A self-styled 'ditzy' blonde TOWIE fan was today revealed as the one of the brainiest Essex girls around after it was discovered she has a higher IQ than Albert Einstein.

Lauren Marbe, 16, stunned her teachers by scoring 161 on the Mensa brain test after she was entered with other pupils from her school.

The teenager loves fake tanning, having blonde highlights, manicures and getting glammed up for TOWIE parties with her friend.

But it appears that as well as being very pretty, she also has a beautiful brain.

This daughter of a black cab driver and dreams of one day being a performer in the West End - like Essex celebrity Denise Van Outen.

But her amazing brain test score means she is brighter than Professor Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and even Albert Einstein - who all have an IQ of 160.

If Prince Harry was smart he would stop by to meet her.

She doesn’t look black to me.

Just like Einstein. Being a STAR doesn't require math.

The Quentin Tarantino one is a well-known myth, he has admitted himself that his mother just used to tell people that; he never even took an IQ test. Also, Charles Dickens died before the first IQ test was even invented. I’d be surprised if those were the only anomalies on that list.

I’ve read that black taxi drivers are amongst the smartest people with the largest most well organized brains. To get a license you practically have to memorize London. I could probably dig up the article if I searched hard enough.

Geena Davis has a high I.Q. and is a member of Mensa. Sharon Stone seems like a ditz and I don’t know what a “Shakira” is.

IQ just ain’t everything. In my teens I tested between a low of 158 and a high of 164. I wanted to be an architect. I was designing buildings in the 7th grade. But the school’s curriculum offered very little for me. It was terribly frustrating, and, as a Fifties kid, one never questioned one’s elders. And,,, I went to a very good Prep School. I had to take Biology, Latin,,,, courses that had nothing to do with my desires or future. Graduated at the bottom of my class, but was accepted everywhere I applied because I scored the highest ever achieved on the Architectural Aptitude Test. Went to the wrong school. Stressed engineering not design. Totally frustrated, I dropped out and became a musician. So,,, IQ, plus no common sense, and poor decision making? Things don’t always work out. Just sayin’. Best of luck to her!

Isaac Newton - 190

Adolph Hitler - 141

Hillary Clinton - 140

Geena Davis - 140

Albert Einstein - 165

There is definitely a difference, however, between IQ and widsom.

This daughter of a black cab driver

I find it hard to believe this girl has 50 % black genes...

Unless "black" in England means something else...

My niece is 25 % black and she has tell tell signs of black genes... slightly wider nose, fuller lips, kinky hair. Beautiful girl...

When I was in the Marine Infantry some of our biggest screw ups, $hit birds and just don’t give a rats a$$ types also happened to be amongst the smartest of us. It was always funny to hear some idiot NCO ragging on one of these guys and calling him an idiot when we knew that the Pvt,Pfc or Lcpl was twice as smart as the NCO in charge, he just didn’t care.

Albert Einstein never took an IQ test

Einstein’s estimated IQ was over 180

Marilyn Monroe’s IQ was alleged to be over 145

Jayne Mansfield’s IQ was alleged to be very high too

If you hire an employee to do most types of work a 110 IQ is fine - like a soldier employees need to act and not delay or question the boss - If the do the need to go start and run their own business(es)

When Blondie exhibits the ability to comprehend a nuclear theory, build a massive corporation, or write a classic book she might get a cashier’s job at a grocery store and show the world how smart she really is when she becomes CEO in five years.

Ego is the killer of creative thought and invention.

She needs to cut her hair shorter and get a life.

Obama’s IQ must be dismal as he hides all of his records - I’ll wager 10K that I know people that can (independently) prove their IQ easily exceeds his by 70

MENSA will never certify Bill Clinton or Hillary Clinton to have alleged “genius level” IQs

When the Clintons attempted to intimidate MENSA into accepting them - MENSA simply told them they would need to be tested by a MENSA certified shrink.

It never happened.

Incidentally marijuana and “blow” significantly destroy brain cells

MENSA - once in Brooklyn NY - is now located in Texas

Phone MENSA - get your high school transcript photocopied and notorized and look for very high 90s scores on your Mental Maturity test

- when you get an invitation to join - you can frame your invitation and put it up on the wall - and save the membership fees

MENSA parties tend to be meat markets for people seeking to improve future children’s gene pool and meet some well of but otherwise boring people

That is what I am told

Order a pizza, crack a beer and watch “SKYFALL” for only $4.75 “On Demand” on Optimum Cable

Not best ever classic 007 flick - but purty durned good enyhoo - especially after several fine brews

Email your kids and wish them a corny Valentine’s Day

Life is short - but so was the alleged genius Napoleon - and he (like Hitler did much later) decided to invade Russia and freeze-dry his own troops

Caution - Do not invade Russia

or send in the Commies

Forget it!

They are here already -

I’ve read that black taxi drivers are amongst the smartest people with the largest most well organized brains.

I recently spent a couple of days in London and I'd agree.

FWIW, Black cab drivers are people (typically men, typically native Brits) who drive black cabs.

It's the color of the taxi, not the driver (who's most likely a white, native born Englishman --a minority in London these days).

My wife recently took an IQ test and scored a 152, so it’s okay if I’m a dummy. She has enough brain for both of us.

Yeah, I was tested by a shrink when I was about 12, and managed to sneak a peek at the report, which included an IQ test. So, I’m sure I could get into MENSA, but what is the point? I find that associating with extremely intelligent people is usually pretty boring, and even depressing. Most of them can’t socialize with normal people at all, and they don’t know how to stop thinking either, so they have all sorts of neuroses.

Ordinary folks, on the other hand, know how to kick back and have fun. They don’t put unreasonable expectations on themselves or others, so they can actually be content with small victories and simple pleasures. Not everything has to be perfect all the time, and they’re more than happy to just shrug their shoulders, say “I don’t know”, and crack open another oat soda.

Funny how we age every year, but a quotient that is based on both age and acquired intellectual ability over time never changes. Hmmmm.

Re your question: “What is 0’s IQ?”

You just answered it in the question - ZERO.

Now his Marxism IQ is quite high. He graduated from the Saul Alinsky School of Marxism with honors.

That should explain everything.

MENSA isn’t that impressive. I remember looking at entrance years ago and I was eligible because of my SAT scores. And I happen to be an idiot.

It’s 75, but affirmative action raises it to 180.
