The high IQ society

Marco Ripà (sPIqr Society Founder)

**Marco Ripà was born in Rome, Italy, 35 years ago and he still lives there. **

He initially studied Physics but he gained a First Class degree in Economics. He speaks Italian, English, French and a little Spanish, while also being able to understand some Portuguese. He is good at mathematics and he likes science very much too. His interests and hobbies include philosophy, Italian poetry (especially Dante Alighieri's verses), literature, chess, powerlifting, fishing and martial arts. He often relaxes by listening to classical compositions, but he prefers rock music and melodic songs. He has a younger sister plus some very good friends. He is an author of number theory papers and the father of a 60+ integer sequences listed in OEIS.He has been voted "

**His personal YouTube Channel, focused ****on mathematics**, logic and philosophy, counts about 160k subscribers.

**His average score on the first submissions of high range IQ tests (the mean of all the spatial tests and numerical ones he has taken) is close to 200 points on the Cattell Scale (sd=24), while his best performance reaches 211 points on the same scale.**

**He is the creator of the X-Test, a very difficult logical/numerical test with some divergent thinking, and of the ENNDT/ENSDT.**

Ripà's Conjecture on the 3^k Points Problem (09/07/2020) states that, for any k (i.e., considering any number of dimensions): "It is possible to solve the 3x3x...x3 Points problem with a minimum length covering trail consisting of h(k)=(3^k-1)/2 links starting from every node of our 3x3x...x3 grid, except from the central one. Moreover, if we start the trail from the central node of the hypergraph, h(k)+1 links are needed" (see https://www.researchgate.net/publication/343050221_Solving_the_106_years_old_3k_Points_Problem_with_the_Clockwise-algorithm).

This is a true example of a serious open problem to test your genius capabilities,

in order to let your high IQ achieve some real goals. Do you wish to give it a try?
