$$$$$ Three-Year-Old “Brainbox” Child Achieves Rare Feat Most Adults Can’t Pull Off

When you’re three years old, your mind is going nonstop. You start figuring out how to string together coherent sentences. You ask a lot of wholesome questions. You sometimes make very little sense. That period is when you reveal your personality one goofy moment at a time, and for a small section of the population, your genius begins to show. 
The parents of a UK toddler knew their child was different from the other little ones running around the playground. He’d always been advanced for his age, but an IQ test revealed just how special he really was — and soon the rest of the world took notice. 
Muhammad Haryz Nadzim was only seven months old when he tipped his parents off that there was something miraculous going on in his mind. The baby boy blurted out his first words way earlier than the average person, and that was just the beginning.

By his second birthday, Haryz was totally capable of reading his own bedtime stories. His skill was obvious, soon mastering all the easy readers and memorizing them. This was when they started to think Haryz might have more than above average intelligence.

For Asyikin and her husband Mohd, discovering their son’s incredible mental capabilities was a dream come true. The pair of engineers moved from their home country of Malaysia to the UK for their careers, started their family, and found themselves with a child savant.

It was clear that Haryz was ready to jump with both feet into the education system. In addition to preschool, they enrolled their toddler in math classes with the popular Kumon education program. Within a few months, he made the honor roll.

Every simple math problem thrown Haryz’s way was solved with laughable ease. He was gifted. That much was clear, but everyone was curious about exactly what level of intellect they were dealing with. The Nadzims had to find out.

Was Haryz destined to be the class valedictorian? Or was his brain bound for much grander ambitions? The only way to tell was through a good old fashioned IQ test. Haryz, who they affectionately dubbed their “little brain box,” was ready to prove his smarts.

The Stanford-Binet IQ test is the standard for evaluating children. Since its creation in 1905, the test has developed through five editions and currently focuses on five key areas: quantitative reasoning, knowledge, working memory, visual-spatial processing, and fluid reasoning.

Haryz dazzled on the verbal and nonverbal components, making his parents beam with pride. Still, no one knew what to expect when it came to the results. Their theories were confirmed about his intellect when he scored 142, placing in the 99.7th percentile.

While it’s no longer an official classification, the former threshold for genius-level intelligence starts at a score of 140. This put young Haryz comfortably in that top tier position of highly accelerated minds, and important people immediately took notice.

The Nadzim family was contacted by the renowned elite society of intellectuals — Mensa. The UK chapter of the organization reached out to recruit Haryz as their newest member. All he needed to do was complete a required visit with a psychologist.

To join the club, an applicant’s IQ test results must be within the top 2% of the population. That’s it. Any person, of any age, from any different walk of life, is welcome. However, those under ten years old face far more scrutiny to determine an accurate assessment. 
A toddler Mensa member wasn’t unheard of. Previously, the UK chapter admitted their youngest ever member. At two years, four months old, Elise Tan-Roberts joined the renowned group after putting up an impressive score of 156.

Like Elise, Haryz showed an aptitude for memory. His recognition bumped her from holding the title of the UK’s current youngest Mensa member. At age three, he already has a more impressive resume than most people will have in their lifetimes.

While the prestige of a Mensa membership undoubtedly adds to Haryz’s already incredible potential, he’s under no pressure to perform. The number one priority for his parents is ensuring that their son’s life is well balanced.

For the most part, Haryz is just like any other little boy. As his mom explained to CNN, “He really loves painting and reading books, really anything arts and crafts. He loves playing with Legos and Play-Doh especially.”

Maintaining that semblance of normality is really important for gifted children. Existing under the microscope of high expectations can take its toll, particularly when high-IQ kids start achieving early on. In Haryz’s case, being a happy kid comes first.

It’s debated whether gifted children are more susceptible to depression, but it’s certain that having a high IQ makes it difficult to surround yourself with true peers. Finding a school that challenges them enough is hard, finding compatible friendships can be equally as difficult.

Haryz is on track to use his incredible brain power for academic and social pursuits. His mother continued, “He’s not only good at academics, but he’s just like other children who love playing and growing up. We know he will give so much back to society in the future.”

It’s every parent’s wildest dream that their child will be born brilliant. Face it, a high IQ individual is usually granted the best opportunities. They’re compared to great minds that shaped society, like Einstein and Hawking. The world sees them as special.
