About Us

Welcome to HighestIQ.com. This website is dedicated to helping people achieve their highest level of intelligence. 

Intelligence Quotient (IQ) is a measure of intelligence where 100 is considered the average of the population at large.

Many scientific studies have been conducted to gauge why some people are more intelligent than others and the general consensus is that it is a function of both their genetic and environmental background. There is not much at present that you can do about the genes you were born with but there is a lot you can do to change your environment and that of your children.

Infants are especially susceptible to environmental factors and stimulating your baby with love and learning activities can make all the difference to their eventual IQ. A recent study even noticed that a group of babies that was breast fed in the first nine months showed a higher overall IQ than the bottle fed control group. Our own experience has shown that the first child always gets the most attention when they are born because there are no siblings to compete with. As a result if this baby is properly stimulated they will usually learn to recognize letters and read at a younger age than their potentially less nurtured younger brothers and sisters. 

Most baby's brains are like a sponge they are constantly absorbing all the information around them so the more stimulation they receive like touch, taste and music and visual clues like alphabet decorations etc the more neural pathways their brains will develop and effectively the smarter they will become. In the past it was considered that only babies had this ability to grow their brains but studies of cab drivers in London have shown that even adults have this ability. The London cab driver is required to memorize the street plan of the center of London before they can get a license. These adults have shown increased brain size, and activity after acquiring the "knowledge" especially in the areas of the brain associated with visualization. Older people that play puzzles or keep their brains active have been shown less likely to suffer from degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease. 

So what can you do?

If you are having a baby we recommend that you stimulate them as much a possible. Simple things like playing classical music, dancing with them, reading to them tracing their fingers over the shapes of letters in the alphabet etc can all have a profound effect. The best part of all this is that it is really fun and will help you to bond with your baby. If you run out of ideas on what to do we have two excellent guides full of suggestions and of course you should check out our Alpha-border as a wall decoration for your baby's room. If you cannot afford it then make your own but please spend all the time with your baby that you can, it really will make a difference and when they get that scholarship to Harvard you will be glad you did!
