The only qualification for membership in Mensa is a high IQ. How high you ask? If you score a minimum at the 98th percentile or higher on a standardized, supervised IQ or other approved intelligence tests, have an IQ of 130 and above.

Now, to gauge just how many people are considered a part of the 98th and 99th percentile, the Simon-Binet Scale recognizes at least  2.2% of the world’s population can be described as very superior, the highest classification of IQ (Intelligence Quotients).

Being the largest and oldest high IQ society in the world, those accepted into the society is indeed very very very hard, and this one Malaysian kid did it at the age of 3!

Highlighted in Metro UK, Muhammad Haryz Nadzim became the current youngest person to be accepted into Mensa, with the youngest entering the society and the age of two).

As parents, Anira and Mohd thought Haryz was like any other kid before their son’s genius was made known to them by the nursery Haryz attends. They speak both Malay and English at home too.

 “It was only when he started going to nursery, we were told he is more advanced than other children, then we realized he was special.”

Seen by reporters reading his own storybooks, Haryz was accepted in British Mensa after achieving 142 on the Stanford Binet test – making him the top 0.3% of the population.

In the process of testing Haryz, which was led by psychologist Lyn Kendall, who specializes in gifted children said: “We just really wanted to clarify how we could help him to reach his full potential.”

The kid from Durham, born to parents with an engineering background will surely do us proud and be an inspiration to others just like him.

You can watch him in action memorizing and reciting stories via his Youtube channel Little Haryz.

Speaking to Mensa, the society confirms that Haryz is currently its youngest member. Here is what they have to say about him.

“Mensa members are highly individual and come from vastly different backgrounds and careers, but there are several traits which keep recurring.” 

“Probably chief among those is curiosity – people with high IQ take little at face value and are continually asking “Why?” and “What if ?”

SO if you have a child or relative who asks too many questions, fret not, he might just be the next kid genius. While this kid is accepted into MENSA at 3 years old, we can only wonder what we’re doing with our lives!
