The IQ society was founded in 1946 in Oxford, England, by Roland Berrill and Lancelot Lionel Ware. Its mission is to “identify and foster human intelligence for the benefit of humanity,” according to the official website.
Getting into the elite society is notoriously difficult and is a privilege reserved for those who score in the top 2% in its famous IQ test.
According to an 11-year-old Londoner who earned a perfect score on the test, it’s “written in a way that any person can do it.”
