  1. wow. love the parents, too !

  2. Hope this kid invents a zero point energy sick of paying electric bill

  3. The elites and the media love there elevens.

  4. That's amazing! You go Jaxon! 🙂

  5. Anyone notices that this kid is not only a genius but left handed?

  6. Can you still play basketball and your stupid by spoilers

  7. Wtf this kid graduated college at 11. I got a ged and graduated trade school and my parents call me smart and different? Lmao thank you mom and dad

  8. The part when he was 2 he could name up to 15 digits.Fake
    Humans must be taught.Humans don't know unless they are taught.

  9. How come the dad didn't have to eat any fruit with his pizza?

  10. How does a 2 year old know what he knew?

  11. It’s actually a little relatable because I’m in a gifted and talented school, I knew all my letter by 2 and in 2nd grade they had to make a whole new spelling group just for me😅 I’m best at spelling, “publicity” was on my spelling list in 2nd grade! But I do get mad when people just see me as a child I don’t feel….like a child! Because I can talk about mature topics like bills and religion. I go to therapy and I’m writing a book currently and I love creative writing! My mind moves differently then the normal child’s does. Letters and putting sounds together make me so happy! My brother is 2 and he might be autistic but I teach him kindergarten type stuff! So he gets it and I make it as fun as possible. I read at an 9th grade level too! My teachers are amazed by me! I can animate and edit and I built a structure out of pasta, tape, a marshmallow and some strings. I hope you enjoyed my story!

  12. how frankly he can talk this is amazing

  13. Ahhh… skills from a former life, one with his cognitive.

  14. How is possible that the baby know those numbers even when no one taught him that

  15. But your not just a kid.. your a freeking boy genius now get your butt to college

  16. 1. I feel really bad for his sister. Because she’s always compared to her brother.
    2. Of course he is a left handed. I m not being mean to right handed people but left handed people are the best

  17. Has an iq of 150+
    Cant tie his shoelaces:

  18. Love it when I see stories about a child genius who is still allowed to be a kid 🙂 Why rush them into growing up faster than need be

  19. again one of those dumb stories – this kid is going nowhere. let me just quote one of the best studies done on these kinds of people:
    "Similar considerations may explain why mathematical prodigies can fail as adult mathematicians. The lack of overlap in the performance of precocious children and adult scientists in mathematics is even clearer than in music: Superior ability in mental addition and multiplication demonstrate efficiency in the mechanics of mathematics, whereas major adult contributions in mathematics reflect insights into the structure of mathematical problems and domains."

  20. A kid that age shouldn't be watching E:T, he'll have nightmares well into his twenties.

  21. He’s smart don’t get me wrong. But Jacob Barnett is a true genius. This just seems like a bright kid

  22. This is the only problem I want to have

  23. This is the man who will lead us into area 51 boys!

  24. I’m quite smart
    My iq:100
    His iq:150

  25. he is correct about graduating college at 11

  26. I spelled my son's name JAXON back in 97' …
    He did the 9th grade 3times, so pretty smart too… 👍

  27. I hope he can do something with his gift most kids dont do anything with their gifts I think he could change the world

  28. 1:34 him: I normally try to do it without a calculator
    *is literally doing a division problem

    Also did anyone think about the fact that the mathematic part of his brain could be bigger than average because they mentioned that he couldn’t tie his shoes

  29. Sorry but no one is born knowing the name of large numbers. This kid was taught either youtube or the babysitter

  30. My son eats his Boogers…

  31. Oh geeze another Left handed Genius.

  32. Someone get this kid an Xbox. No kid should own a Jenga game

  33. some geniuses are good at mathematics

  34. Smart kid. Nothing out of the ordinary tbh.

  35. I am talented, I can eat a goldfish whole.

  36. He looks like childhood Christian bale

  37. Not gunna brag or anything thats nothing compare to what china has to offer or the average asian category. Abacus is my top priority so if you can top that than ur a real child prodigy
