An intelligence quotient (IQ) is a score derived from one of several standardized tests designed to assess human intelligence. The abbreviation “IQ” was coined by the psychologist William Stern for the German term Intelligenz-quotient, his term for a scoring method for intelligence tests he advocated in a 1912 book.
20 Celebrities who have shockingly high IQs

Not only is Steve Martin an accomplished banjo player, the credited inventor of air quotes and one of the funniest people on the planet—he’s also a genius.

As if being one of the most acclaimed actresses of any generation wasn’t enough, the “Devil Wears Prada” star has an IQ of 143. Somehow all that intelligence didn’t prevent her from agreeing to take a role in Robert Redford’s “Lions for Lambs.” Hey, even geniuses have off days. We still love her.
- Conan O’Brien — IQ: 160
This shouldn’t come as a shock. After all, Conan is a Harvard grad, accomplished comedy writer and all-around nerdy-looking dude. His IQ is reportedly 160, which is the same as Stephen Hawking’s. But it must be noted that the famous physicist never made millions off of a masturbating bear character. So who’s the real genius now, Mr. Hawking?

A beachgoer stumbled upon the head of the 13-foot-long beast on Luis Siret Beach in the Andalusian village of Villaricos.
The latest in a string of “sea serpent” stories has sparked an online buzz in the past few days, thanks to the gnarly-looking pictures that surfaced in the Spanish press last week. The carcass washed up on Luis Siret Beach in the Andalusian village of Villaricos, according to the local publication Ideal, and sparked jokes about the Loch Ness monster and mutant fish.
“A lady found one part, and we helped her retrieve the rest,” Civil Protection coordinator Maria Sanchez was quoted as saying. “We have no idea what it was. It really stank, as it was in the advanced stages of decomposition.”
The Europa Press quoted a coordinator of the group, Francisco Toledano, as saying that any identification would have to be made on the basis of the images — because the decomposing remains were buried by sand.
Toledano said the preliminary analysis suggests that the 13-foot-long (4-meter-long) carcass came from a “species of fish,” but he wasn’t more specific. Almeria24h.com said some experts speculated that the creature could be a thresher shark (also known as fox shark, Alopias vulpinus, or “peje zorro” in Spanish). Such sharks have a distinctive caudal fin that can stretch out as long as the shark’s body itself.
“It’s hard to tell,” David Shiffman, a University of Miami shark researcher who blogs about marine biology on Southern Fried Science, told NBC News in a Twitter exchange, “but the official guess that it could be a thresher shark seems plausible.”
