The Polymathiq Society was founded by Ronald Altmann in 2009. Polymathiq stands as one of the most exclusive high-IQ societies in existence. Its purpose is to identify and gather living polymaths with profound intellectual ability. Membership requires: (1.) an IQ at or above 180 IQ (SD=16), corresponding to a theoretical rarity of 1 in 3,500,000; plus, (2.) polymathic learning, as defined by expertise across a wide range of disciplines. As of February 25, 2011, only three individuals have met both of these rigorous requirements. Membership in the Polymathiq Society is free for all who qualify.
