Hawking and Raniere – on high IQs

Up until recent changes, Keith Raniere’s bio on his website, http://www.keithraniere.com [Aug. 13, 2017] proclaimed: “Noted as one of the world’s top three problem solvers, Keith Raniere was honored in 1989 by the Guinness Book of World Records in the category of highest IQ. He has an estimated problem-solving rarity of one in 425,000,000 with respect to the general population.”
Stephen Hawking [January 8, 1942 – March 14, 2018was asked in 2017 if he believed he was the most intelligent person in the world.
He gave a sharp response: “I would never claim this. People who boast about their IQ are losers.”

So, who’s the loser?

  • Ha! I saw this quote yesterday and thought instantly of Keith Raniere. Loser indeed.

    The biggest difference between Hawking and Raniere, outside of the fact that only one had a productive and joyous life that actually made our world smarter and better, is that only one is a malignant narcissist. At least Raniere has that in common with L. Ron Hubbard.

    All the KR culties have been promoting Hawking and his passing on their social media accounts. Hawking would be dismayed.

  • In any case, Stephan Hawkings’ answer explains that he was very intelligent, and above all he did not define intelligence which is exellent. The question will always remain ‘what is the intelligence’ ???? ……
