Genius: At three-years-old Alexis Martin has become the youngest person in Arizona ever accepted into Mensa

A three-year old girl with an IQ above 160 has just become the youngest person in Arizona to be accepted into Mensa. 
In fact, doctor's said young Alexis Martin did so well on intelligence tests they couldn't even calculate her IQ score exactly.
Mensa is an international club which only accepts members who have an IQ score in the top two per cent world wide.



Gifted: Though blessed with a wonderful mind, children like Alexis may suffer high anxiety and would benefit little from normal schooling


The average person scores an IQ of approximately 100.
But when Martin scored 160, the highest possible rating on the test, she matched the IQs of geniuses like Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, and BIll Gates, who are also thought to be in a similar range.
Martin's parents said their little girl had given them signs she might be gifted for a long time.
 'From 12-18 months old, we'd be driving around in the car and she would recite her bedtime story from the night before,' her father, Ian, told ABC 15.
'She didn’t just recite them, she recited them exactly.'
She's currently consuming books at a 5th grade reading level and even taught herself Spanish on the family's iPad. 
'Anytime she learns a word and just picks it up through anything, she never ever uses it in the incorrect context, ever,' said Ian.

And while her parents are grateful for her intellectual prowess, they are worried about what unique challenges it might give to raising Alexis.
One of the doctors who tested her said Alexis could never go to a normal school and that children with her level of intelligence often suffer from high anxiety unless they're around similarly gifted boys and girls.
'Does she go into kindergarten early? We are kind of hesitant because we do want her to get that social aspect,' Ian said.
