    Kashe Quest: 2-Year-Old Girl With One of the Highest IQs in the World Becomes Youngest Mensa Member

    Must Read

    While an average adult has an IQ of 100, a two-year-old scored 146 during an IQ test – That earned her a spot at Mensa, a society of individuals with the world’s highest IQ

    – According to the Mensa website, only 2% of the population scores above 130, which makes Kashe Quest remarkable

    Two-year-old Kashe Quest from Los Angeles has become the youngest member of Mensa, a society comprising of the world’s most intelligent people.

    Quest earned the prestigious spot after garnering an impressive score of 146 during an IQ (Intelligence Quotient) test. The Mensa website indicates that an average adult of sound mind has an IQ of about 100, with a paltry 2% of the population scoring above 130 and regarded as very intelligent.

    At the moment, the kindergarten kid can read comfortably, knows 50 signs in sign language, and speaks Punjabi and Spanish. Her mum said:

    “If we read a word incorrectly, or we say a word incorrectly, she’s going to correct us.” Athwal was, however, quick to point out that despite being highly gifted, Quest behaves like any other two-year-old. She, for instance, loves watching the movie Frozen and has memorised all the songs.

    Athwal added: “Kashe loves playing make-believe with her friends.”

    It is against this backdrop that the parents decided to let her go through normal schooling like her peers so that she is not made to feel like she is under pressure to grow up too fast.

    The executive director of American Mensa, Trevor Mitchell, described Quest as remarkable, adding that it is good her abilities have been recognised early in life.

    He told TODAY:

     “Her parents will be able to help her with some of the unique challenges gifted youth encounter. Being the smartest person in the room isn’t always easy, and Mensa understands the importance of being challenged by others, of having our potential recognized, and of celebrating achievements.”
