the neuroscientist Prof. Dr. Fabiano de Abreu became a member of Intertel, a high-IQ society more restricted than the Cafeteria (the best known association of its kind) and achieved an unprecedented feat so far.
Responsible for revealing names such as Gustavo Saldanha, Laura Büchele e Romeu Gutvilen, Fabiano confirmed his rank as one of the smartest people in the world.
Mensa International, founded in 1946 in England, is the largest, oldest and best-known high-IQ society in the world. There, only those who measure scores above 98 percentile on the IQ tests are approved, which is equivalent to above 131 points with a standard deviation of 15.
The second oldest and even more restricted that Mensa is Intertel, founded in 1966 in the United States inspired by the first, but with the requirement that the pass score must be above 99 percentile points, which is equivalent to 135 or higher in the Wechsler scale (statistical mean 100, standard deviation 15).
Born in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and son of a Madeiran mother (Portugal), land of Cristiano Ronaldo, Prof. Dr. Fabiano de Abreu Agrela Rodrigues is a Luso-Brazilian who has already said he wants to take the name of Lusophony, countries that speak Portuguese, internationally.
After discovering his high IQ, tested more than once, he plunged into intelligence studies and discovered ‘DWRI Intelligence’. He also created two therapies, uncovered a collective disorder in Brazilian society arising from anxiety, violence and an excess of social networks, and was one of the first to say that the internet makes people less intelligent.
He has a 99.9 percentile which is equivalent to 155 on the Wechsler scale (statistical mean 100, standard deviation 15) and is equivalent to 188 points with standard deviation 24. Already known for having one of the highest IQs in the world, the neuroscientist member of Mensa he has just been approved as a member of Intertel and is also a member of the IHIGS (The International High IQ Society).
With this, Fabiano becomes the only Portuguese member of this restricted association which has four Brazilian members and a total of less than 1400 members in the world. He is currently divided between Castelo de Paiva, where he spends most of his time, and Brazil, where he has most of his clients.
My biggest goal is to raise the name of Lusophony
We spoke with the neuroscientist about what made him sign up for Intertel and what it’s like to be the only Portuguese and one of the few Brazilians in this association[display-posts orderby="rand"]
“A friend from Mensa commented on Intertel and I signed up. Not to prove anything, but to make more friends and have more challenges. About being the only Portuguese and one of the few Brazilians at Intertel, which encourages others to take the test, as well as for Mensa and me to be able to interact with more fellow countrymen”, he explained.
My main objective is to raise the name of Lusophony, there is a devaluation in relation to Portuguese-speaking peoples, especially Brazilians; we, from Lusophony, do not value ours. When I wrote about the misuse of the internet making people less intelligent, they didn’t listen, when a Frenchman wrote two years later, it was repercussions. We need to give reason, reason, so that others arouse interest in discovering, unraveling, standing out, seeking knowledge and changing the current situation in which we live.
The neuroscientist who is also a journalist and advisor, due to his vast experience and his condition, serves parents of children and gifted people in order to bring better answers and paths for people in this condition, since he did not have the same monitoring.
Prof. Dr. Fabiano de Abreu has a PhD in neuroscience, Doctor and Master in Health Sciences in the areas of Neuroscience and Psychology, Master in psychoanalysis, with training also in neuropsychology, history, anthropology and advanced training in clinical nutrition.
It has more than 50 titles including diplomas, registrations and certificates. In Portugal, he has the title recognized by the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, with training at Cognos, TrainingHouse and is currently a student of educational neurosciences at the Catholic University. Other formations in Brazil, United States, France and Spain.
