Social Media User Claims Melania Trump Has A Higher IQ Than Michelle Obama - But People Think He’s Lying

Date October 24, 2019

When Melania Trump became the First Lady, many people wondered about her IQ. Her modeling career took off when she was 16 and after turning 17, Melania enrolled at the largest university in Slovenia, the University of Ljubljana.

She chose design and architecture as her major but dropped out of the university a year after to pursue modeling career abroad. Michelle Obama, on the other hand, studied at Princeton University and majored in sociology and minored in African-American studies.

The former First Lady graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts. She then earned her Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from Harvard Law School. However, some people claim that Michelle Obama’s IQ is much lower than Melania Trump’s.

How much IQ depends on education?

A new meta-analysis on the correlation between IQ and education, consisted of the results collected from 28 studies, showed that an added year of education lifted participants’ IQ from 1 to 5 points.

However, it’s been noted that ‘IQ and general intelligence are not the same thing.’ The effect of education may be related to improving particular skills but not to an elevation of general intelligence.

Who has a higher IQ: Melania Trump or Michelle Obama?

One social media user compared Melania Trump and Michelle Obama’s IQs, claiming that Melania has a higher one but not everyone agreed with him.

Melania’s former professor said she has a very high IQ

Melania Trump’s former professor, Blaz Matija Vogelnik, who taught her at the Slovenia’s University of Ljubljana, noted that the First Lady had to pass a ‘rigorous’ test in order to enter the institution, which indicates she has a ‘very high’ IQ.

It’s also been known that Mrs. Trump fluently speaks 5 languages. Moreover, she settled in the US after getting an “Einstein visa,” which is an ‘elite’ program reserved for people with an ‘extraordinary ability.’ But does this mean her IQ is actually higher than Michelle Obama’s?
