This guy has the highest IQ of all time! Find out what he spent his childhood doing!

Everyone feels like the dumb guy in the room when Kim Ung-yong steps in. Why? He's the world record holder for the highest IQ at a score of an astounding 210!

He is was born in 1963 in Seoul, South Korea and was a child prodigy of epic proportions. He became a chatterbox at 6 months old and started reading Japanese, Korean, German, English and other languages by his third birthday.

By a year later he memorized nearly 2000 words in English and German and enjoyed writing poetry and short books of essays in many languages.

By four years old he scored more than 200 on an IQ test that was normally given to 7-year-olds.

As of 2007 he worked as a Korean civil engineer. In 1990 the Guiness retired the "Highest IQ" category since IQ tests were too unreliable to name a single record holder.
