Da Vinci’s IQ would not be any higher than 160 based on some simple observations:
  • At least half of Da Vinci’s invention failed when tested, this does not show high IQ at all;
  • Da Vinci was not a super-fast learner (the main sign of high IQ);
  • Da Vinci tried to learn mathematics but did not really get very far;
  • Da Vinci’s works do not require a high IQ.
 Nothing Da Vinci did demonstrates that he had an IQ test score of 200 or higher or even close to that. Da Vinci is so overrated that people think his IQ was higher than Newton’s.
