IQ Scores Of The Famous: Was Muhammad Ali’s IQ 78?

Muhammad Ali Low IQ Score Doesn’t Deter High Fame

Muhammad Ali is one of the most famous sports figures on the planet, the professional boxer born Cassius Clay, Jr. who went on to win the world heavyweight championship at the age of 22 and was ultimately crowned Sportsman of the Century by Sports Illustrated Magazine. Although his achievement ranks Ali among the world’s most famous, his IQ score is among the lowest. IQ, or intelligence quotient, is a score assigned to individuals following the results of taking tests designed to measure an individual’s intelligence in order to predict their success at earning an income and performing well in their career endeavors.

Muhammad Ali ranks at the bottom of the IQ scale with a score of only 78, which is classified as “mildly disabled”. Although Ali’s low score doesn’t seem to have curtailed his success in life, he is not the only person who failed to get a genius rating without suffering any ill effects on his life circumstances. President Ronald Reagan scored only 105, considered average or normal. An IQ score of 145 or more is considered to be “genius” material. Famous people in this category include Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Paul Allen, Leonardo Da Vinci and Bill Gates.
