OPRAH WINFREY - 140A few readers think I’m crazy for thinking Oprah Winfrey IQ is around 140. For some dismiss her as just another mediocre celebrity entertaining the unwashed masses. And 140 is a truly astonishing figure, when one considers that the average white U.S. college graduate has an IQ around 111, the average white PhD has an IQ around 123 and the average U.S. president has an IQ around 130. Many find it unimaginable that overweight black woman who entertains housewives could be so much smarter than all those people.
But the first thing to keep in mind is that Oprah’s not just an entertainer, she’s a billionaire, with a B, and she’s a billionaire several times over. Think about how hard it is to go out and make a million U.S. dollars, and then imagine doing so 3000 times, and keeping every penny, and you have a sense of just much genius is required. The following chart is a very rough approximation for the relationship between money and IQ in America. It’s hard to pin down exact numbers, but a good rule of thumb is that Americans tend to be close to ten IQ points smarter than Americans who earn ten times less than they do, and they tend to be ten IQ points dumber than those who earn ten times more:
Homeless people (three figure income earners): Average IQ 76
The working poor (four figure income earners): Average IQ 86
Average Americans (five figure income earners): Average IQ 96
Self-made millionaires (six figure income becomes seven figure wealth): Average IQ 106
Self-made decamillionaires (seven figure income becomes eight figure wealth): Average IQ 116
Self-made centimillionaires (eight figure income becomes nine figure wealth): Average IQ 126
Self-made billionares (nine figure income becomes ten figure wealth): Average IQ 136
Self-made decabillionaires (ten figure income becomes 11 figure wealth): Average IQ 146
So just the fact that Oprah is a self-made billionaire implies Oprah Winfrey IQ is about 136.
