As with ordinary persons, celebrities have had their IQs measured and some of the results are public knowledge. If you are a fan of Brad Pitt and want to know his IQ score, this article is for you. What then is Brad Pitt’s IQ?
There is no specific answer to this question. This is because multiple IQ scores have been attributed to the award-winning actor by various sources, and he is yet to confirm or deny any of them. Keep reading to find out about his reported IQ scores and how his life has been influenced by his intelligence levels.
How IQ Scores Affects Actors
IQ is short for Intelligence Quotient. An IQ score is used to measure a person’s intellectual potential. Other than this, IQ scores can be used to determine or assess intellectual disability, fitness for employment, and educational placement. Luckily (or unluckily in some cases), IQ scores are not a requirement for becoming a celebrity in Hollywood. Still, it would be out of place to assume that stars do not require brains to do the jobs they do.
As a matter of fact, celebrities, particularly actors, need to possess high levels of intelligence to play their roles perfectly. This is reflected in the amounts of reading and character they research they have to undergo to play roles that they have been cast for. They also need to understand the human psyche so that they can adequately portray their assigned characters. Again, even though bloopers are fun to watch, actors must have great memories to be able to retain and recite their lines while displaying the right emotions. Nothing confirms the intelligence of some actors more than the fact that they did not have to go to college or some other educational institution to learn it. This is not to say that those who went to such schools are to be disregarded. It just shows that you could be naturally intelligent enough to be an actor.
Acting is a difficult task and requires high levels of intelligence. Stars like Brad Pitt, who make it seem so easy, deserve all the accolades they get and are undoubtedly intelligent.
Possible IQ Scores of Brad Pitt
As stated earlier, a fixed answer cannot be given to the question of what Brad Pitt’s IQ score is, still here’s a rundown of IQ scores that have been attributed to the Fight Club legend.
Celebrityiqs.com gives Brad Pitt an IQ score of 115. The basis of this score is not known, but the website provides a guide that IQ scores in the range of 111 to 120 imply that the individual has above average intelligence. Knowing how challenging acting is and how well Brad does it, we cannot disagree with this thesis. Still, the website disclaims that IQ scores posted on it “are not guaranteed” and “are for entertainment purposes only.”
Another source, iqtest-certification.com, gives Brad Pitt an IQ score of 126. As with the one mentioned earlier, the basis of this score is not known, and in this case, no guide was provided to help one assess the score.
Again, another source, historythings.com, includes Brad Pitt in its list of Celebrities That Have A Much Higher IQ Than You Would Expect. The site gives Brad a score of 126, thus making Brad a member of the 5 percent of the population who score above 125. How this score was determined is not known.
Similarly, iqtestprep.com, an aggregator of celebrity IQ test scores, lists Brad Pitt’s IQ score as 115. Whether this is correct is something we can’t quite say, but it certainly helps prove how much of an unknown Brad Pitt’s IQ actually is.
Despite the uncertainty as to Brad Pitt’s actual IQ score, we are sure that most persons will likely trade the highest possible IQ scores for a chance to live his life for just one day. He is a brilliant actor, and that is good enough.
