Mini-genius Adam, aged 2, is Mensa's youngest member

He's brighter than David Cameron and more intelligent than Barack Obama – but Adam Kirby is just two years old. And now, the toddler with an IQ of 141, has become Mensa's youngest member.

As well as being able to spell 100 words, Adam knows his two, three, four, five and 10 times tables and the planets of the solar system.


Parents Dean and Kerry-Ann said he potty-trained himself after reading a book on the subject when he was one.


Dad Dean, 33, an IT consultant from Mitcham, London, said: "Adam's abilities are outstanding and we've been actively developing his intelligence since he was 10 weeks old. We're certainly delighted for him.

"While most children are just learning to stand up or crawl, Adam was reading books. His development was just mind-blowingly quick."

And he expects Adam's brother, two-month-old Ethan, to be even brighter.

He said: "He will develop at a faster pace as we are more experienced and he has Adam to learn from."

The test of intelligence and cognitive abilities tailored for younger children suggested the 141 score – 10 more than the reported IQ levels of David Cameron or Barack Obama in the adult test.
