Binet-Simon tests
   three to twelve, and they have formed the basis for much of the scholastic intelligence testing done in Europe and America for nine decades. The score of 150 is accepted as that of a genius and below 70 as an indication of mental deficiency. According to historical researchers the intelligence score of John Stuart Mill, who learned Greek at age three, was "over 200."
   Binet was a pioneering figure in modern psychological research. Among his writings are Psychology of Reasoning (1886) and Alterations of Personality (1892). Since Binet's death, the tests have been revised several times.
