Adolf Hitler IQ 141


Adolf Hitler IQ 141. Hitler was reported to have an IQ of 141. However, there is no evidence supporting this claim. Hitler had no formal education, he was not a great student but he did well enough to be accepted to the university preparatory school "gymnasium" which is a technical school or Realschule in Linz. They had an art school which was his interest at the time but he did not do well and dropped out after 4 years at age 16.

It would seem that if Hitler had an IQ of 141, he would have acheived better grades in school; however, it was noted that "he was not a great student".

Hitler later applied to the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts art program but was rejected. Hitler liked art and could paint but he had no formal training and was self-taught. He was rejected because his art was not good enough to join the art program so the school suggested he apply for the architecture program because he mostly drew or painted buildings. Furthermore, his grades were poor; however this would not have prevented him from going to the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts because they did have make-up courses which he could have taken to catch up, but he did not follow up on this for some reason.

His inability to go to the Viennese Academy of Fine Arts was the end of his formal education. Beyond this point, as he says in "Mein Kampf", he self educated himself from books and newspapers. Throughout Mein Kampf he does quote many philosophers and theoriticians.



Adolf Hitler IQ 141 Fact or Fiction


Adolf Hitelr IQ of 141. Did Adolf Hitler really have an IQ of 141 or is this just a hoax? I really can not answer that question. However, he was living during a period in history where IQ tests were being administered. It's possible that he sought out a licensed psychologist to administer an IQ test to him. Afterall, Hitler was a vain person and had a personal physician travel with him to routinely administer amphetamine injections to keep Hitler focused. But it was reported that he was a poor student and aside from a desire to rule Germany and the world, he had no formal education and no higher education aspirations except go to art school. So in my opinion, Hitler did not have an IQ of 141 and I doubt that he had an IQ any higher than 115.
