Freaking Genius of the Time [Lydia Sebastiann]


  A Freaking Genius found in England. 


   This is an amazing record of a girl who rates extra-ordinary on IQ score. How can someone rate as high as that? It is wonderful to think and re-think this astonishing gift of nature which has brought this girl to a spotlight. In the mind of many, scores like this still remains a fiction but in reality IQ tests when found to be reliable and valid are the sufficient criteria to justify the truth of such matters like this. 
  Tests with adequate psychometric properties are infallible and as such, plausible in the determination and/or prediction of intelligence. The daughter of migrant Roma workers in England has blown away the scientific community with her impressive IQ test results. The 12-year-old, Nicole Barr of Essex, scored an incredible 162. That score is higher than Hawking and Einstein’s scores and places her among the smartest 1% of the human population.
The average score for adults is 100. Anything about 140 is considered genius.
“When I found out I got such a high score, it was so unexpected,” Barr told the Western Daily. “I was so shocked.”
Barr took the test with her father, James, 36, who hoped she’d be accepted into the illustrious society with her score.
“She’s always loved numbers and puzzles,” he told Yahoo Parenting. “And she’s always been excellent at math, performing several years ahead of her age group in school. She likes challenging herself.”
  The pre-teen currently lives in a Gypsy caravan with her father and baby half-sister. Her father is incredibly proud that her academic achievement has been the talk of their community.
“It’s nice for us to be in the news for something good for a change. This shows that it doesn’t matter where you come from, anyone can be academically brilliant,” her father said.

It's no doubt Nicole has always been a bit ahead of the game academically, extremely above average. At the age of 10, she had mastered complex algebra. Currently she loves acting in theater and hopes to be a doctor someday. “Nicole is a brilliant pupil,” said Helena Mills, head of Burnt Mill Academy. “She works incredibly hard and has thrown herself into many different activities in her first year with us.”
We have a tendency to look down on migrants, but you never know who you might be rejecting when you turn them away from your border.
   What modern scientific era elucidate about geniuses like this
  The order of scientific thought about geniuses are the thoughts of neuroscientists and clinical psychologists that geniuses by theory and practice depend on the influence of genetic and environmental factor. Here it seems genetic has more influence on the girl's IQ although little or nothing is known about his parents and family but as it is obvious, she is not from a very wealthy family which suggest an average to maybe below average socioeconomic background. Environmentalistal psychologists, who by the nature of their study, believes that the environment makes a gross impact in the determination of behavioral attributes but this may not always be so. This also is true from the data gathered from resilience. It is also correct if they may want to argue that the country which the girl inhabits is a developed country. Before concluding about the collective nature of the environment of England, what about the individual way of life from the Gypsies ancestry? You shouldn't forget that the Gypsies were once persecuted, face a lot of trials, killed because of the nature of their believe system, the  ancient Roma magic folklore which is now practices somewhat secretly. Many of them were accused of witch-crafts and the practices that was against the norms and conducts of the then England.
  The Gypsies where low populated people scattered in the native America and some countries in Europe. They were killed mostly in Germany based on cultural and religious grounds such as:

i. Being racially inferior
ii. Practices of witchcraft and
iii. Sorcery
  To not digress a lot, the background of the said girl might only have gained some meaningful level of resilience too. So to not contradict but rather compliment both the genetic theory and environmental theory of behavioral attributes, both are sufficient to answer the questions about Nicole's IQ.
