While different institutions and organizations keep comparing top scholars and business minds to measure their level of intelligence, the decades-long controversy on IQs is far from over yet.
The harsh controversy has not spared Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates either, as the public often debates their IQ scores. So, what is Zuckerberg’s IQ?
Is Zuckerberg a Genius, What Is His IQ Level?
Zuckerberg has an estimated IQ of 152, as reported by several sources. He is considered to be a genius and within the top ranks of intelligent people across the world.
152 is considered a high score, with 100 representing the average score. Not so many individuals have an estimated IQ of 130 and beyond. So, Mark is within his rights to be associated with the ranks of high-IQ personalities.
The world has long been comparing the young entrepreneur to Bill Gates, whose IQ score stands at 160. Besides, Bill Gates is safely considered a prodigy and obtained his MENSA membership as a young man.
However, experts have hinted that it is tough to compare the two top business minds due to the different factors leading to their individual success stories.
How Smart is Zuckerberg?
There is, no doubt, a lot of controversy around Facebook and how Mark developed it. Some of the Harvard students that studied with Zuckerberg claim that he stole the Facebook idea from two brothers. But, this is the least of our concerns anyway.
It is easy to believe that no ordinary person can develop a vast social platform like Facebook. Managing Facebook since 2004 is also an underrated skill that most of Zuckerberg’s college mates back in Harvard keep overlooking. It is fair to associate Facebook’s success with Zuckerberg’s reported IQ levels.
Different sources have confirmed that Mark Zuckerberg is more into social matters and how the internet can help achieve them. He is said to be a down-to-earth business leader who is keen on how his Facebook company can help develop other business firms using technology.
Whether Mark Zuckerberg was academically bright back in Harvard or not, we must appreciate that we have at some point benefited from using his development – Facebook.
