A boy who taught himself to read and count – including in Mandarin, Welsh, French, Spanish and German. – while playing on his tablet has become the UK’s youngest member of Mensa.
Teddy Hobbs managed to gain entry to the exclusive organisation for the intellectual ‘elite’ aged just three years and nine months.
Teddy was admitted to Mensa late last year after smashing an IQ test with the group, scoring 139 out of 160 on the Stanford Binet test and shocking his parents, who had no idea quite how smart he was.
Mensa is an International Group for high-IQ individuals founded in 1947 that only accepts members who are above the 98th percentile of IQs worldwide.
