Kim Ung-Yong, The Man With the Highest IQ and His Powerful Message That Will Change The Way You Think

Who says there are no more geniuses these days? Now and then we meet an extraordinary person who can succeed in incredibly hard tasks at a very young age.

South Korean civil engineer and also a former child prodigy, Kim Ung-Yong, is such a person. He displayed unbelievable feats of intelligence not long after his birth. Actually, the Guinness Book of World Records listed him under “Highest IQ”. Nevertheless, Kim now wants to let the world know that a high IQ doesn't bring happiness, but there other things that really matter in life.

Born March 8, 1962, Kim began speaking at the age of six months and understood algebra at eight months old! By the time he was two years old, he was fluent in four languages: Japanese, Korean, English, and German. When he was three, he mastered more languages.

He started attending university at four and graduated at fifteen. His IQ was 210 when he was just two years old!

Kim Ung-Yong mastered algebra at a very early age.

When he was still a teenager, NASA scouted him. He served there for 4 years as a researcher. However, after a long time of pushing himself to the limit, he began having a feeling of emptiness and void in life. In 1978, when he was 16, he decided to return to South Korea. His people back home were calling him “a defective genius.” After he received much criticism from the public, he chose to pursue his education at a local university.

In 2007, he served as adjunct faculty at Chungbuk National University. Seven years later, in 2014, he becomes an associate professor in Shinhan University, and then vice president of North Kyeong-gi Development Research Center.

What constitutes a person’s IQ?

IQ, or Intelligence Quotient, is a term that describes a score on a test that rates the person’s cognitive ability in comparison with the general population. IQ tests usually use a standardized scale with 100 as the median score.

In most tests, a score between around 90 and 110 indicates average intelligence. A score above 130 proves exceptional intelligence and a score below 70 might indicate mental retardation. Modern tests take in to account the age of a person when determining an IQ score.

However, is being special as significant as living a simple, ordinary life?

A high IQ isn’t always a gift. Kim Ung-Yong missed many things ordinary kids experience. His entire childhood was lost. He insisted that life without human relationships is a life without a purpose.

Kim Ung-Yong's Powerful Message Will Change The Way You Think

Kim Ung-Yong believes the way to happiness is living an ordinary life.

Kim said:

“People always try to be somebody special by neglecting their ordinary happiness. But they should know happiness means ordinary things that we take for granted, such as nourishing friendships, sharing memorable moments with friends at school and so on…I couldn’t have these things even if I wanted to. This is why I know that what I’m saying is important.”

His message is simple and clear:

“Being special is not as important as living an ordinary life.”
