Overview

In 2002, George H. Choueiri (c.1980-), a Lebanese freedom fighter, Christianity activist[1], and supposed chess player or fan, who ranks his own IQ at 195|#13 (in his own list), and jokingly as IQ of 21000 in his "hall of shame"[2], in 2002 started a so-called an online intelligence society named “Association of the Christian Era (ACE), hosted at ACEViper.net (deactivated: 2015)[3], themed on IQ tests and freeing Lebanon, which amassed 12-members, wherein he devotes several pages to the "history of intelligence tests"[4], from Francis Galton forward, modern intelligence theorists[5], e.g. Howard Gardner and Robert Sternberg, online IQ tests, ACE girl of the month, Q&A board discussions[6], e.g. talking about how Al Capone's IQ was rumored at 200, etc.

Choueiri's list, preceded by Ulf Norlinger's 1998 list of 22 names, was one of the earliest IQ tables on the Pre-Google Books era[7] Internet, 2006 or before.

In 2003, Choueiri posted a 115-person list of "Estimated IQs of Famous People" list.

List

The following is Choueiri's list of 115 names of famous people, with his listed IQs shown in the IQ GHC.jpg column; derived from a mixture of the Cox 300 (1926), Buzan 100 (1994), Norlinger 22 (1998), Guinness Book IQ citations, and a seeming spurious admixture of his own invention, e.g. chess players, singers, actors, and some recent IQ celebrities; the column shows the updated corrected IQ or real IQ (true IQ) as found in the top 2000 minds rankings:[8]

The names: Einstein, Hawking, and Gates are bolded, per reason that this Choueiri list seems to be the overly-popular misinformed meme that each of these three had and IQ of 160 and that if you can find an IQ test where you score higher than this, then you can boast that you are smarter than them, discussed below.

Einstein / Hawking | IQ 160 meme

Image from a 2020 article “Adhara Perez reported to have a higher IQ than Einstein”, who graduated high school at age 8, and who is currently attempting a double major in industrial engineering, mathematics, and systems engineering.[11] This is classified as classified as “misleading information”.[12] In other words, there is NO way that an 8-year-old (let alone a female)[13], or any child younger than 18, for that matter, is more intelligent that Einstein! The confusion here is between "potential IQ" (assigned to children) vs "real IQ" assigned to adults (in retrospect).

Choueiri's list infamously showing Einstein, Hawking, Bill Gates, in the last two decades, as produced an unpleasant "IQ 160 meme", wherein, whenever some child scores 162 on the Mensa test, which is the ceiling score, of recent, there parents or someone passes the story to the local media, who then print a [this child] is "smarter than Einstein", "smarter than Hawking", "smarter than Bill Gates", or "smarter than Einstein, Hawking, and Gates", so to grab headline or bait click attention; a few examples:

Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking score lies at 160 while Sharma’s score topped at 162, the maximum possible that one could gain in that test.”
— Anon (2018), “Indian boy scores higher than Einstein in IQ level” [14]
Einstein's IQ was measured as 160 on the Mensa IQ Test, same as Stephen Hawking's and Bill Gate's. A 12-year-old girl, Lydia Sebastian from Essex, England has been reported to have scored 162 — the highest possible score on this test. In May 2019 Jiya Vaducha, an 11-year-old girl of Gujarathi origin living in London, also scored 162.”
— Joseph Mani (2019), Nine Luminaries of Science (pg. #) [15]

The IQ 160 meme seems to be very popular in India, for some reason?
