Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates all have (or had) an I.Q. of 160, but it is time for the old guard to move over and make room for 16 year old Lauren Marbe of Loughton, Essex, England, who has an I.Q. of 161. Marbe, who gets straight A’s, said her teachers always thought she was clever, but the 161 I.Q. test score shocked everyone. Lauren is a typical 16 year old girl enjoying tanning, fake nails, make-up and dating and she’s blond. She says people didn’t take her too seriously because she’s a blond, but she wants to show people just because you’re hair is light you don’t have to be ditzy.

She’s now enrolled in the Mensa Society which means she is in the top 1% of the most intelligent people on the planet. She’s also torn between her high academic ability and her dream of becoming an entertainer as she already takes dance classes and singing lessons and has performed on stage. Her parents are proud, but have no idea where her intelligence comes from, saying there has always been a misnomer that Essex girls are stupid and blond girls are dim. Seems that stereotype has been disproved by Lauren Marbe of Essex, England with an I.Q. higher than anyone, ever!
