The Top Ten
Hi died a month ago
In the honor of Stephen Hawking (1942-2018) - yanzchenthebest
Totally agree. This man has some serious brain muscles! - Britgirl
He's humble and kind which would be the first quality that IQ requires. Regarding string theory and his ability to demonstrate the beauty and harmony of mathematical formulas, he concentrates on the present questions more so than the past.The past is relevant as well, but what we mostly know so far are approximations of the whole. He embraces the uncertainty principle in a variety of his views and is leading the science community by example. Whether in theory, the lab, or stretching uncertainty, he represents the capacity of what humans should become. Thank you Edward for all you do.
Evidence of Edward Whitten's true brilliance is very simple to find in that he is the most highly revered physicist by the vast majority of other brilliant people in the field of physics. I think it is fair to say that anytime a group composed of 100s of the most elite minds on earth say that Ed is the most intelligent person... he most likely is!
My son studied under Stephen Hawking and also met and discussed String theory with Ed Witten. My son said Ed Witten is by far the cleverer person.
Ed Witten is the smartest man in human history. Hawking is overrated and just a media figure.
Totally the smartest... why I don't know... heh
At age 3, he entertained himself, at the grocery story, by calculating the total bill of items in his parent's shopping cart, item-by-item, by weight, quantity, discounts, and sales tax; youngest medalist ever (age 13) of the International Physics Olympiad; age 14, entered Caltect and two years later began working with NASA on a project exploring the possibility of colonizing Mars; age 16 cited with IQ of 225; age 17 penned a “Physics of Relationships” theory based on chemical thermodynamics, chemistry, quantum mechanics, and people defined as reactive molecules; age 23, Princeton PhD on weak gravitational lensing; currently working on the "dark matter" and the "accelerating universe" problems jointly at CalTech and Ohio University.

He has dominated Theoretical Elementary Particle Physics for decades, discovered laws of weak and strong interactions. In fact, almost everything what we know today about forces in universe formulated by him starting at a very early age. He has also influenced some other areas of modern sciences such as linguistics. Quantum Chromodynamics and quarks are his inventions. Hands down, he is the smartest man alive (even Richard Feynman could not compete with him).
Taught himself calculus at age 7; in 1961, he (and Kazuhiko Nishijima) to introduce a classification scheme for hadrons, elementary particles that participate in the strong interaction; in 1964, he and George Zweig, independently, went on to postulate the existence of quarks” (a term coined by Gell-Mann), particles of which hadrons are composed; co-founded the Santa Fe Institute think tank; typically ranked in the top 50 greatest physicists of all time. - JohannGoethe
One of the greatest scientists in the world in 2013. Like Marie Curie, he won two Noble Prize, but unlike Marie Curie, his contribution to the world is by far greater than her. Radium and Polonium? I would say the radiation effect wasn't discovered by her and the discoverers of Oxygen and Hydrogen are greater than her.
One of four people (including Curie, Pauling, and Bardeen) to have ever one two Nobel Prizes; one for the structure of the insulin molecule; the other for virus nucleotide sequencing; quote: “I and my colleagues have been engaged in the pursuit of knowledge. ” - JohannGoethe
How is Messi on this list?!
Bill Gates did not change the way people live. Steve Jobs did. Bill Gates may have invented the Windows, and Apple may be overrated, but Steve Jobs beat Bill Gates to it.
Changed the way people live
Just so you no, first guy, Steve jobs is DEAD
Famously turned down the Fields Medal, after solved the Poincare conjecture in 2006, the most famous open problem in topology. - JohannGoethe
Very smart man
Former child prodigy; cited with IQ of 211-230; known for: mathematics, green "tao theorem; Fields Medal age 31; SuperScholar.org Top 10 Smartest Person Alive (2012). - JohannGoethe
He has an iq of 228. This is the highest in the world.
His financial intelligence is that of a genius
At age 16, had read at least one hundred books on business; shortly thereafter, he entered the Wharton School of Finance, wherein upon arrival he reported that ‘he knew more than the professors’; from 1965 to 2005 has produced an annual average return of 21.5%, a feat unsurpassed, becoming, along with Gates, one of the world's top five wealthiest persons. - JohannGoethe
Raised by a illiterate single mother he would go on to become one of the most celebrated neurosurgeons of the world; director of pediatric neurosurgery of Johns Hopkins by 33; and in 1987, made medical history by being the first surgeon in the world to successfully separate siamese twins (the Binder twins) conjoined at the back of the head. - JohannGoethe
He proved that a negative background can never stop one from becoming the best, considering that he and his brother were raised by a single depressed mother who was illiterate and who supported her family through working as a domestic worker.

When all the other politicians are corrupt fools, Sarah Palin stands up for America. She knows that every day is the right day to "drill, baby drill", and she would never raise taxes on the wealthy. I salute you Sarah Palin for being a true American.
No one writes better and smarter lyrics bot even bob Dylan
