Apparently, it’s all in how they write or introduce the “intelligent” characters in their manga.
So you’ve memorized thousands of kanji, you can name all the members of AKB48, and you actually understand the ending to Evangelion. You’re probably pretty smart, but are you smart enough to take down a question from Japanese Twitter?
Japanese Twitter user @yabazin_gazou, an account with over 250,000 followers, recently posted an unusual math problem, claiming that if you could solve it, that would prove you have an IQ of 150 or higher. While we’re not exactly sure on the science behind that claim, check it out to test the overlap between your math and creativity skills.

How high is your IQ? It is said that most people score between 85 to 114. Scores exceeding 140 are considered to be quite high, but you only get your “Genius” badge if you’ve managed 160 or more.
Albert Einstein had an IQ of 160. Issac Newton was scored at 190. Barack Obama is said to be at 130 while Madonna is a 140. Go figure. Some people consider IQ to be the best measurement of intelligence, while others think otherwise. Whichever it is, this list of fictional braniacs is sure to blow your mind.
For many, the word “dolphin” conjures up images of docile, intelligent creatures that are often considered to be the heroes of the sea, pushing stranded swimmers back to shore and fending off predatory sharks whenever they’re not skipping alongside boats and generally being cute. However researchers from St. Andrew’s University in the United Kingdom have released controversial information that suggests that this is far from the case, resulting in uproar among dolphin conservation groups who argue strongly that dolphins should be protected on account of their high IQs. The news has also shocked many dolphin lovers who regard the creatures as some of the most intelligent and sociable in the world.
