Feynman's IQ

Nobel prize winning physicist and science popularizer Richard Feynman, whose graphic novel biography by Ottaviani and Myrick I recently finished, claimed himself to have an IQ of about 125 on a school test, although he was off the charts in mathematical ability.

The cover of the graphic novel, by the way, features this quote, "If that's the world's smartest man, God help us.", from Lucille Feynman, his mother.

You can also read about his thesis at a recent blog post.
