Skip to comments.4-year-old with IQ of 145 becomes Mensa's newest member

Anala Beevers is 4 and smarter than you.
Anala who learned the alphabet when she was only 4 months old, her parents say has an IQ over 145. The New Orleans toddler recently was invited to join Mensa, the high-IQ society for people who score at the 98th percentile or higher on the standardized intelligence test. Anala is in the 99th percentile.
Anala loves geography, knows the location of every U.S. state and the names of their capitals. She even carries a map of America everywhere she goes.

A striking photo. She does look clever.
Yeah, but can she make baskets like that other 4 year old.
Isn’t this the kind of kid who will grow up and build satellites and space craft?
My son had a puzzle of the US and he knew the capitals, etc, at 3 years old. And then learned the license plates of most states, not all.
Idiot Father says she needs a reality show. Good idea...BONEHEAD! Let’s not help her get an education and just let her be an active, happy little girl. Typical. Jerk wants to capitalize on her. The reality show will happen by the way.
That’s a really bad idea. Ic she’s this bright, she is almost guaranteed herself a free education on scholarships alone.
There is no need to do this.
I applied but was turned down.........I was too smart for them.......
145 is bright but no phenom. She’s more precocious than anything else.
We should all take IQ tests. They used to be given in schools back in the 50’s, 60’s and part of the 70’s. Mine was 136 in HS, and several years later was still at 136 in the military. Then at the beginning of the modern Internet, I took an on-line test and was still at 136..........
Wow - one hundred points higher than the average Dummocrat.
I’ve noticed the smartest people on FR never post their IQ scores on these threads. Some others do.
Didn’t you wonder why they haven’t fixed that test after all those years?
Nah, I’ve read that your true IQ changes very little over time and it seems to be true, at least in my case..............
I’m glad to hear that the IQ test ‘indicates a person’s mental abilities relative to others of approximately the same age’ because I was thinking can this four year actually be smarter than me, a 42 year old, lol.
I have never seen anything about how good Einstein's memory was. Did he know all fifty states and their capitals? I don't know. But he had the ability to detect patterns that others did not. Memory and intelligence are not synonymous.
If she can fold that map, it puts her way ahead of a whole lot of folks...
Can you tie your own shoes?.......
I do. THE ANSWER IS NO........There were only 48 states when Einstein was live......
Wow - one hundred points higher than the average Dummocrat.”
...lol. Actually more like a 149.
if she’s so darn smart, why does she carry a map around?
“Isnt this the kind of kid who will grow up and build satellites and space craft?”
No. They are paraded around like a circus act by their parents for money, never are allowed to be kids, go to college at 10, become disillusioned 19 year olds, and end up in middle management.
The real geniuses are the ones that can come up with something brilliant from nothing. These kids are just sadly steered to be really good a regurgitating stuffed they learned for the cameras.
Betcha one day she’ll wish she could trade some of those iq points for a different first name. Anala? Really?
135, but I’ve got a bad attitude.
Einstein had a terrible memory when it came to things he placed no importance upon, like changing out of his pajamas and into a suit of clothes before leaving the house, wearing shoes, that sort of mundane thing, lol.
On the other hand, an eidetic memory is an indication of a certain sort of high intelligence, and is usually found among those who are at least “bright,” but memory in and of itself is typically not all that great of an indicator of intelligence, imho.
My 4 year old niece explained to me how ‘her’ iphone works.
My daughter could do that at age 2. As someone above said, that shows she's precocious, but doesn't mean she's another Einstein.
(Some of Einstein's biographers painted him as a dull child and a poor student. His genius didn't become apparent until he was in his teens and early twenties.)
Well, good luck to this little girl. I hope she doesn't get a big head with all the praise and adulation ... and then once she faces real competition, finds out she can't measure up to all the hype. I'm always suspicious of parents who push their little children into that rather pathetic, self-congratulatory assemblage of [mostly] losers called Mensa.
Don’t know if it’s true but I once read that Einstein never memorized anything he could look up easily, like telephone numbers he could get from a phone book.
She's only got me beat by 5 points. I'll take her on.
Nice article, thanks. Such a lovely little girl — I hope her parents appreciate and nuture her natural abilities (IOW please let the “reality show” crap be just a nasty rumor).
This little girl belongs to a clade of humanity who typically skew 15 pts lower on that chart (and with a narrower variance). If she really does have 145 IQ then she lies five or six sigma from the mean.
It does my heart good to see her. I hope she has a long and happy life and that she is able to fulfil her impressive potential without being pulled down by toxic memes.
Many homeschoolers can do that... I know a few that can..
She needs to know/do something extra ordinary.. she hasn’t..
you’re just jealous because we won’t let you in
My own experience with gifted friends is that they over compensate and think they have to treat you like an idiot and engage in trivial, inane activities so as not to lose you.
Good for her. She’s cute but she’s not smarter than me, and I have the paper to prove it. Also have a Mensa membership.
By the way, for some who don’t know what they are talking about, I’ve been to many Mensa gatherings and the subject of IQ almost never comes up. There’s certainly no comparing or bragging about IQ at a Mensa meeting.
well, that explains why i think everyone’s an idiot...
high IQs ...
They want to market this little 4 yr old....they see dollar signs...
So sad....she seems sweet and so soft spoken, I hope they don't ruin her.
“well, that explains why i think everyones an idiot...”
From our everyone is an idiot department:
Today my wife was out driving with our 3 yr old son. He spotted a tow truck crew ministering to a stranded car. He asked his mother; “Who are they?” She said, “They drive the tow truck”. He asked “Are they idiots?” She said “No. Why do you ask that?” He said “Daddy thinks everyone are idiots...”
Daddy suspects he mumbles audibly when he is out driving with junior.
An IQ number has no meaning without the SD. A much more accurate description is IQ as expressed as a percentile.
That is only true for a test with a specific Standard Deviation.

Wow, you are smart!
Intelligence Quotient = Mental Age divided by Chronological Age times 100, IIRC. Does this mean her Mental Age is about 6 years old? That my Mental Age is about 106 years old? Tell me what this is about, please.
Ive been to many Mensa gatherings
I'm sure you are and I'm equally sure you're happy this topic finally came up.
Just curious, what do you self-congratulatory geniuses talk about at yer meetings? Porn fantasys, sports or equations?
So who are you, Pinky or the Brain?
The story is told that once a person was speaking to Dr. Einstein and wanted to know his telephone number. Einstein went to a telephone directory and looked up his number and read it off to the visitor, adding that he saw no reason to use up his brain space (or some such term) with things that he could simply look up.
Sorry, I see you pointed this out earlier in your post 32; I hadn’t seen it...honest!
