A four-year-old boy has stunned psychologists—after intelligence tests revealed him to have the same IQ as Einstein.
Sherwyn Sarabi has tested off the scale for intelligence—scoring an IQ of 160—the highest mark on the test.
It's the same score that experts believe scientist Einstein had, as well as being identical to that of Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking. Sherwyn from Barnsley, Yorks, started school two years early and became a member of Mensa at the age of three.
He spoke his first words aged just 10 months and has been amazing his parents, teachers and doctors ever since. Now after gaining the maximum marks in his most recent IQ test, 160 marks on the Whechsler Scale, Sherwyn has proven his intelligence to be extraordinary.
Educational psychologist, Dr Peter Congdon said: "Sherwyn has a very superior level of intelligence, he is incredibly gifted and his vocabulary is out of this world. "His intellect reaches the highest possible levels of reason and when he talks to you he has the social skills of a much older child.
"His mental age is measured at 8 years and 9 months, more than twice his actual age. "It is very unusual for a child to have this type of intelligence, he came out at the very top on the tests.
"I specialize in specially gifted children but when I tested Sherwyn I knew I had come across something very special." Whilst most four-year-olds have not yet started school, Sherwyn is already studying work for eight and nine year-olds at Rastrick Independent School, Huddersfield, West Yorks.
Sherwyn's mother, Amanda Sarabi said: "He is a very happy healthy child and loves to talk.
"He questions everything and I have been doing my best to answer his questions to the best if my knowledge. "His general knowledge is amazing for a four year old, I think it's because of all the questions he asks all day long.
"Sherwyn has read over 190 books and his favourite is the encyclopedia as he loves learning new things."
