With his 187 IQ, Reid sits at the very far end of the. While this is quite an impressive feat on its own, what’s even more impressive is who he outranks in that position. The estimated scores of both and — figures synonymous with the idea of intelligence — come in at around 160, meaning that Reid beats them by more than 20 points. And though Hawking himself may have insisted to that “people who boast about their IQ are losers,” this number makes Reid smarter than some of history’s greatest innovators and a formidable adversary for any bad guy.
A couple of more contemporary figures fall short of Reid’s score as well — like the then-youngest member of Mensa, Kashe Quest, who was admitted in 2021 at just two years old with an IQ of 146, says. Then there’s Jacob Barnett, who has a reported IQ of 170 (per ); he was the for Theoretical Physics and now studies quantum gravity. It’s safe to say that Reid enjoys some very good (and very smart) company.
