Mark Zuckerberg intelligence score is not known by the public. The best aptitude test score results were those that he submitted on college applications, including the one that got him into Harvard, and are the best way to estimate Zuckerberg’s IQ score.
When asked about this topic, Mark Zuckerberg said that intelligence is hard to measure. He also said that there are some things he does better than others but intelligence cannot be measured accurately.
Mark Zuckerberg intelligence test score is estimated between 120 and 155. A score of 140 is considered genius level intelligence. So, even if the exact intelligence test score of Mark Zuckerberg is not known nor ever seen by the public, it can be determined that his intelligence is out of the ordinary or at a genius level.
Other estimates place Mark Zuckerberg’s intelligence score at 160+. This is largely based on his reported perfect SAT score of 1,600. While the type of questions that can be found on the SAT can also be found on IQ tests, not all IQ test question types are found on IQ tests. So basing his IQ score off of an SAT score alone is not conclusive.
About Mark Zuckerberg
He has intelligence , confidence, and smarts. He’s a genius in many senses of the word, but he is still just Mark Zuckerberg – one person.
Mark Zuckerberg was born on May 14, 1984 in White Plains Hospital in White Plains, New York. His father Edward Zuckerberg was an electrical engineer born to Holocaust survivors from Poland and his mother Karen was a psychiatrist at the same hospital where Mark was born. His parents both worked at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. Mark has three sisters, Randi, Donna and Arielle.
Mark Zuckerberg attended Ardsley High School and in his sophomore year he was transferred to Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire when Edward relocated his company to New Hampshire. Mark attended Phillips Exeter Academy with Christopher Hughes, who was an inspiration for the founding of Facebook later on.
Mark Zuckerberg was shy when he was young, but he got over that when he started college at Harvard University in 2002. He met his roommate and best friend Dustin Moskovitz through Chris Hughes (who had moved on to Columbia University).
Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook with Chris Hughes and Dustin Moskovitz in 2004, but had help from Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Adam D’Angelo and Sean Parker. The first version of the website was called “TheFacebook” and it was exclusively for Harvard students. Later throughout the year of 2004, Facebook opened to other Ivy League schools (Yale, Stanford and MIT). Then in 2005 it expanded to more universities like Boston University, NYU, Columbia and even high school students.
At one point before the site started growing rapidly Mark Zuckerberg was called by many people for breaking the law by stealing all their information from their online social network profiles. He had to get lawyers involved, but he didn’t get in any serious trouble because of it.
Rumor has it that Mark Zuckerberg was willing to sell Facebook for $1 billion before the company even went public, but some people say this rumor is false while others claim it’s true.
Mark Zuckerberg married Priscilla Chan on May 19, 2012. They had been together since they were students at Harvard University.
Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest CEO in history to have a company valued over $1 billion dollars. He currently has an estimated net worth of $120 billion dollars, but this largely fluctuates of the stock price of Meta (the parent company of Facebook and Instagram).
Most of us probably know Mark Zuckerberg for founding Facebook, but he actually founded another social network before Facebook. He called it Wirehog which allowed users to share things with their friends through Bluetooth technology. The idea was shut down by the school administration because they felt it wasn’t safe and they were afraid it would be hacked.
About IQ Scores
IQ tests are very common and popular measures of intelligence. The distribution of IQ score is often compared between groups (gender, gender identity, ethnicity) and then conclusions or predictions about ability are made based on the distribution of that group’s scores.
The distribution is often modeled using a normal distribution. For a distribution that is normally distributed, the mean represents the arithmetic average of all values in the distribution. The median represents the middle value when values are ordered from smallest to largest. In a normal distribution, a quarter of all scores fall below the defined median and a quarter above it (also known as the interquartile range).
The distribution may not be exactly normal if there are only a small number of test takers or if some groups take the test less frequently (less represented in the distribution). A distribution is considered normal if it roughly follows a bell-shape.
Most IQ tests are scored with an average score of 100 and a standard deviation of 15. The distribution, then, has 68% of scores falling within ± 1 standard deviation (between 85 and 115) and 95% within ± 2 standard deviations (between 70 and 130).
