Marilyn von Savant was not the smartest. First of all IQ test vary a lot. When she made a Guinness world record of 186 it was for women only. Despite her high IQ she hasn't made ground breaking discoveries or inventions. Einstein had "only" 160 IQ, but achieved much more. The most intelligent human ever was William James Sidd. He had an IQ of 280. He could learn a new language a day. Garri Kasparov and Leonardo da Vinci, are both smarter than her. Please do your research before claiming anything.

TL;DR: Marilyn von Sidd was not the smartest, a guy was.

Smartness is something that I think can't be measured, therefor I said that the human who has the record for the biggest IQ in the world can be named the smartest. BUT, as you can see in the description, I didn't claim she is the smartest human in the world, I just said it she has the biggest IQ in the world. In the comic I said another thing just because, as long as the person who said it is just a character of my comics, doesn't mean I have the same opinion. I didn't do that to make her look stupid or anything, is just that I don't give a bottle of filthy craps about what you think.

The comic's funny. I pinkieed it. But she doesn't have the highest IQ either. None of the things I said are things that I "think", but instead plain facts.

There have surely been people with a higher IQ than her, but none of them actually took an IQ test. The human being who is known for having the biggest IQ, and who has the Guinness record is Marilyn vos Savant. Once again I am not saying she's the smartest human, because , despite her big IQ she didn't do much for the world and didn't make any important discoveries.

The IQ test was taken 1989 and was measured at 185. Since then Garri Kasparov was measured at 190. Kim Ung-yong has gone to the very same tests as Marilyn vos Savant and received 210 IQ.

word. intelligence is a subjective measurement. the IQ test is not an objective scale that holds it's validity regardless of context. for example, if given an IQ test today, someone like Abraham Lincoln would probably test at a retarded level. IQ tests measure your ability to adapt to the cultural context in which it is given. so...a high IQ doesn't necessarily mean anything. there are savants that can do mind-boggling things, who might test at genius IQ levels in some areas, but are completely moronic in others.

Indeed. IQ measures the capability to learn new things. A savant may have a high IQ, but not the capability to learn normally. Kind of like a super computer without a screen. Latency is another intelligence factor. It basically is the filter of important and unimportant information that we receive. Geniuses have usually a very low latency and see thing that we don't. Insane people also have a very low latency, but not enough IQ, thus their brain overloads.
