A Mensa three-year-old girl named Alexis Martin has an IQ above 160, which is higher than Albert Einstein's IQ and higher than 99.9 percent of the world's population. Three-year-old Alexis Martin has become officially the newest genius in the chapter of Arizona’s Mensa organization which only accepts individuals that have an IQ in the top two percent of the world. According to a Feb. 17, WRTV report, the doctors who tested Alexis said that she tested so high, “they couldn’t even calculate her IQ score.”

According to her dad, Ian Martin, Alexis showed signs of some unique abilities at the age of one and that she began reading when she was two years old. “From 12-18 months old, we'd be driving around in the car and she would recite her bedtime story from the night before,” he said. “She didn’t just recite them, she recited them exactly.”

Now at the age of three, Mensa’s newest member reads on a fifth grade level, excels pretty much in everything, and taught herself Spanish by using her parents’ iPad.

While Alexis Martin’s parents are proud that their three-year-old daughter has become a member in Mensa, they are also aware of the price that comes with every gift. According to a doctor who helped test the young genius, Alexis will never be able to go to a normal school. “One of the reasons, often times, kids this brilliant have high anxiety and it's easier for them to be around similar children.”
