"50 greatest living geniuses" list includes Greek physician

Thebestschools.org's list is a way of representing genius in all of its forms, it writes. Any good list, be it The 50 Greatest Living Geniuses or Top 50 Hairstyle Trends in 2014, is really designed to provoke debate, incite discussion, generate collegial disagreement, and ultimately promote reflection.

In the list, among internationally acclaimed innovators like computer programmer Paul Allen, businessman Warren Buffet, street artist Banksy, president Barack Obama, brilliant director Joel Coen, actor Sir Ian McKellen, novelist Cormac McCarthy, Bill Gates, Tom Stoppard, Stephen Hawking and Bob Dylan, there's also Greek physician and psychiatrist Evangelos Katsioulis.

Here's why.

"Greek physician and psychiatrist Evangelos Katsioulis is at once a consummate medical practitioner and a possessor of one of the world’s highest recorded IQs. Scoring a 205 on the Stanford-Binet scale, Katsioulis is noted for an intelligence largely unparalleled in the various fields where he has been a leader.

Following his graduation in 2000 from the School of Medicine of the Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Katsioulis remained at the university to earn an MSc in Medical Research & Technology in 2003 and a Faculty of Philosophy MA in 2012.

His career in medicine would see Katsioulis rise to mastery in nearly every field he entered, including radiation oncology, neurology, and general practice. He has subsequently ventured into psychiatry and psychopharmacology, making particular contributions to research in antipsychotic medication.

Katsioulis is a member, and in some cases founder, of numerous high-IQ societies and organizations."
