A lot of comments were made on this blog about Kalvin Korff saying he has a 219 IQ. Kalvin says he was administered IQ tests when he was younger and said he never claimed to have taken a magazine IQ test.
As with just about everything Kalvin says you have to take it with an entire salt shaker. I was pointed to some Internet websites so I thought I would check it out.
Sure enough it appears Kalvin DID INDEED claim that he had a "219 IQ" as per a test in a science magazine. I found out Kalvin is a regular on an Internet show called X Zone and has his laughable biography listed there. It also appears now that Kalvin is attempting to cover up this IQ claim.
I took this picture of this X Zone website listing Kalvin guest information. It is dated as "Wednesday June 11 2008" Now, my understanding is most f these shows ask their guest to send in their background information so I am going to assume this is what Kalvin did. This background information states without question "Armed with an IQ of 219, according to the Omni Magazine's World's Hardest IQ Test" Really the claim is made quite clear and this isn't open to interpretation as none is needed. There is no reading between the lines here as the message is perfectly clear in relaying to the reader that Kalvin claims to have a 219 IQ as per a magazine test.
If you look on the same Internet website I also found another ALTERED guest information bit for Kalvin dated later as "Thursday June 26 2008" and there is NO mention of Kalvin's self proclaimed genius.
If Kalvin did have this high of an IQ then why is he not in the Mega Society?
