Selena Janik from East Tennessee scored in the top one per cent of an intelligence test – well above the entry requirement of two per cent.

Her parents decided to get her IQ tested after she proved to have a natural ability for maths and reading.

Selena’s mother Cristy Janik told local media: ‘She would point to a letter and she would tell me what the weather said and then she would go to the next one and tell me what that letter said and the next one. Then she could put them all together and read the whole word.’

Eric Janik said he knew his daughter was special when she stopped crying just nine seconds after being born.

‘Everything comes naturally to her. She picks up a book and she’ll know it. She picked up my wife’s nursing book and asked her about the vascular system and stuff,’ he added.

While Selena’s talent proves she could be a bright spark when she grows up, she is not the youngest member to join the super intelligence group.

London-born Elise Tan Roberts was just two years old when she joined the IQ society in 2009. She could name 35 capital cities, recite the phonetic alphabet and count to ten in Spanish – giving her an IQ of 156.

Two-year-old Adam Kirby, from Mitcham, Surrey, also gained membership to Mensa last month. The clever tot potty trained himself, can spell 100 words and has an IQ of 141.

Mensa normally only tests children who are aged ten or above, but younger children are tested on cognitive abilities tailored for them.

The suggested score for admittance is 141 – which is ten more than reported IQ levels of David Cameron and Barack Obama in the adult test.

Mensa is the oldest IQ society in the world and has about 22,500 members in the UK and Ireland – about 900 of whom are under the age of 18. The club’s oldest member is 103.
