Anna Chapman: profile of a 'Russian spy' (Anna Chapman 28-year-old Russian with an IQ of 162)
telegraph.co.uk ^ | 9:46AM BST 02 Jul 2010 | Stephen Adams, Andy Bloxham and Gordon Rayner

Posted on 07/10/2010 4:16:40 AM PDT by valkyry1

Anna Chapman is a beautiful 28-year-old Russian with an IQ of 162, a diplomat father and a taste for the high life.

She also has a romantic streak, having married her British boyfriend within a few months of meeting him.

With such attributes it is hardly surprising that she has been called a real-life Bond girl.

Anna Kushchenko, to use her maiden name, was born in the industrial southern Russian city of Volgograd, then Stalingrad, to a maths teacher mother, Irene, and a diplomat father, Vasily.

She does not appear to have had an especially gilded youth, having suffered from scoliosis - curvature of the spine - as a child and having lived with her grandmother there.

If she's so smart then this "genius" should've never been caught.

The CIA and other intelligence agencies regularly employ some very high IQ folks themselves.

The people on the cutting edge of the conflict of civilizations are all pretty bright ~ and both sides catch their fair share of them.

I knew a girl once, looked just like that. She used to dance artistically in a New York City nightclub.

She asked me if I could guess where she was from.

I said “the Ukraine?”

It blew her away, since I Judged it correctly first time right out of the box.

She then thought I had an IQ of 162.

“Ha ha ha ha IQ of 162.”

You doubt? IQ has nothing to do with social behavior. You think all with high IQ are introverts? Are incapable of being normal, down to earth sheeple? Those with ‘normal’ IQ are either awed by, or ridicule those who are intelligent. :)

I believe, no proof just speculation, that she was involved in money laundering for real spies not espionage. I doubt she had an IQ of 162. She probably took one of those internet IQ test. btw, I'd hit it faster than Boris Yeltsin could down a bottle of stoli.

You are right. She was apparently involved in kinky sex according to her ex. Intelligence has nothing to do with adrenal activity.

Let’s look over here instead of over there.

All this attention to bimbo serves the purpose of the administration and their cohorts in the msm.

Kind of like all Lindsay Lohan all the time.

In 1996 I was writing letters to women in Russia and I jumped on a plane and went over to meet one. She was from Ryazan Russia but we met it Moscow. She was supposedly a school teacher 26 and stunning.

Long story short it did not work for us, but you should have seen the women who approached me in the hotel bar after that!

Probably the idea of some publicist. Years ago the MSM stupidly ran story after story about the allegedly high IQs of various starlets. Later it was revealed that it was a PR stunt to get some free media.

The media are out to turn poor, little Anna into a sympathetic figure.

Her power over men is on display, even here on FR.

Hehehehe! I, too, jumped on a plane to Moscow to finally meet a Russian lady with whom I had been communicating for about a year. It DID work out. Been married six years now. Her being a 46 year-old English Ph.D may have been a contributing factor to stability. She is now a professor at two universities.

Raw "smarts" doesn't match years of training in the craft. I would rather have a surgeon with 20 years of experience and a 120 IQ than a 162 IQ intern. Similarly even brilliant rookie spies make mistakes that trained pros wouldn't. Since the FBI has been following this spy cell for 10 years, the mistake was made long ago (although I'm surprised they didn't notice they were being tapped, tracked and trailed during that time).

Just a little below Einstein yet a party girl ???

Actually Steven Hawkings was a known campus wide as a party animal. One associate related a story where Hawkings and his other class mates had a project where they had 7 possible results they could turn in to a really tough professor. The more they turned in the higher the grade. The others in the class spent months working on these projects and at best got 1 or 2 parts done. Hawkings partied all semester, went on a drinking binge the night before the projects were due, went home and crammed and turned in 4 or 5 parts and blew the curve. I think this story is part of the documentary they did on him a number of years back.

Later on, his disease disabled him. I wonder, however, if we would have been able to keep up with him in a drinking contest in his prime? I'm just glad he had those times at all.

The Russian women can be incredibly gorgeous and they’re very competitive with each other - their looks are their way to a better life - more so than Americans.

I have a Russian neighbor, claims her father was KGB and he told her to come here because in American you can do anything. So she did anything. Married a rich guy who supposedly committed suicide (there are rumors she killed him) and she blew the money he left her and has been living in her place for free for several years, hasn’t paid dues, mortgages, and even now that the place has foreclosed she is still there. Her main concern in life apparently is finding another rich husband but I’ve heard men find her somewhat scary.

And yeah...she’s good looking.
