Six-year-old prodigy soars to genius status: Joins Mensa with Einstein-level IQ



New Jersey wonder kid Declan Lopez impresses with IQ of 138

In a remarkable feat, a six-year-old prodigy from New Jersey, Declan Lopez, has been officially inducted into Mensa, showcasing an astonishing IQ of 138—placing her on par with the legendary Albert Einstein. Her exceptional intellect surfaced when, during a family trip at the airport, she spontaneously began counting in Mandarin, leaving her parents in awe.

Declan’s mother, Meachel Lopez, recounted the moment, saying, “We were on a trip in the airport, and she just started to count in Mandarin.” This extraordinary display of intelligence prompted the family to explore her capabilities further, leading to her induction into Mensa, the high IQ society.

Despite her remarkable intellectual abilities, Declan’s parents emphasize the importance of allowing her to experience a normal childhood. Meachel expressed her desire for Declan to “laugh and joke and make mistakes and do things that 6-year-olds do,” highlighting the need for a balanced upbringing.

Declan herself is already delving into a diverse range of subjects, expressing a keen interest in arts, science, math, and geography. Her favorite topic of study? “I’m interested in arts, science, math and geography. My favorite thing to learn is a force in motion.”

Interestingly, Declan’s younger brother Maddox seems to be following in his sister’s footsteps, raising questions about whether the family possesses a genetic predisposition for high intelligence.

The family humorously notes that their newfound best friends are now Alexa and Google, as the children’s curiosity leads them to ask questions that challenge even their parents’ knowledge.

While an elevated IQ is one measure of intelligence, critics argue that intelligence is multifaceted and cannot be solely determined by an IQ score. The complexity of human intelligence, especially in children, adds a layer of nuance to such assessments.

Regardless of the ongoing debates around IQ tests, Declan Lopez’s story stands as a testament to the extraordinary potential found in young minds, and her journey into Mensa marks a remarkable milestone for this budding genius from New Jersey.
