Izaak Miller is already lapping some intellectuals twice his age. With an IQ of 154, he already knows all 50 states in the U.S., in addition to the alphabet in three different languages: English, Greek, and Arabic. It is no wonder why Miller has officially joined the ranks of intellects that make up Mensa.
In the top one percent for his age range, the four-year-old brainiac actually passed the admission test for Mensa at the age of three.
Miller taught himself to read books by the age of two and in addition to knowing the alphabet in three languages, he can write and speak in all three with ease, despite having no Greek or Arabic heritage.
His mother Michelle Nelson told The Mirror UK that, “he just loves language” as he is already asking for books on the Russian alphabet.
Boasting a reading age of seven-years and ten months and math skills seen in the average six-and-a-half-year-old, Miller was unquestionably a shoe-in to join the ranks of Mensa.
His mother, who is a secondary school teacher, told the popular news outlet that, “Izaak is my only child so going through the process of parenting I was shocked that one day he could just read. It was more from being outside with him and him reading signs on the bus and the underground, reading names of stations and reading instructions on posters like ‘please sit down take a seat’. People were looking at him and asking whether he was at school because they couldn’t believe a child that young could read. Every time I walk out the house someone compliments him.”
In addition to his English, Greek, and Arabic, Miller can also count to ten in Spanish. He knows all of the planets in order. For fun, Miller spends time putting his alphabet blocks next to corresponding items, for example, “A” next to his “aquarium”.
His mother also told The Mirror UK that, “I had to tell the nursery [about his Arabic] – they thought he was writing nonsense! They couldn’t believe it because none of them know that alphabet.”
Amazing things are definitely on the horizon for Miller. We cannot wait to see what the future holds.
