Our understanding of the complexities of the human brain has evolved, and so too has the notion of IQ, what it really means, and how it is most accurately captured.
There are many aspects to evaluating intelligence. In fact, there are at least three components that affect overall performance on tests. These include short-term memory, reasoning, and verbal recall.
IQ is an oversimplification of the spectrum of human cognitive ability. IQ scores may be somewhat misleading and will vary in scale or even direction depending on the exact type of intelligence that the test or set of tests are designed to evaluate. Nonetheless IQ remains an element to be considered.
Here are the top ten celebrities with highest IQ:
