Intelligent Three-Year-Old Accepted As Member Of Mensa
Kathleen Shipman 1/22/2016
Alexis Martin is only three-years-old, but already has an IQ of over 160. Just recently, she was accepted into Mensa - making her the youngest member in all of Arizona.
From early on, Alexis's parents could tell that there was something special about their daughter. She would recite books from memory, and even began reading when she was only two-years-old. Now that Alexis is three, she has a fifth-grade reading level and can speak fluent Spanish. Doctors were blown away by Alexis's intelligence. The toddler scored +160 on her IQ test - which is higher than 99.9% of people in the entire world! In fact, the doctors stated that they hadn't of seen a child that brilliant in 20 years.
Even though she stands only knee-high, Alexis recently became a member of Mensa. The high IQ society requires that you have an IQ of 140 or above (which is the highest 2% in the world). Alexis's parents are extremely amazed and proud of their daughter - yet, cautious of her moving ahead to fast. They would like to make sure that she has a proper social upbringing as well. After all, she is still just a kid!
