FBI BAU Special Agent Spencer Reidhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marilyn_vos_Savant
Played by Matthew Gray Gubler, Dr. Reid graduated from high school at age 12. Reid is a 25-year-old former Las Vegas schoolboy with a triple PhD. Often serving as the team's statistics expert, he has an uncanny ability for spotting complex patterns. He does not believe that genius can be measured but admits that he has an eidetic memory, an I.Q. of 187 and can read 20,000 words per minute. Dr. Reid's mother is a mental patient, suffering from paranoid schizophrenia, an illness that can be passed on genetically. Dr. Reid also serves as the team's handwriting analyst.
The second intelligence test mentioned by Guinness is the Mega Test, designed by Hoeflin and taken by Marilyn as an adult in the mid-1980s. The Mega Test yields deviation IQs: scores obtained by multiplying the testee's z-score (the rarity of their raw score on the test) by a constant standard deviation (in this case 16) and then adding 100. Marilyn's raw score was 46 out of 48, corresponding in the latest norming of the test to a z-score of 5.4 and therefore an IQ of 186, a percentile of 99.999997, and a rarity of 1 in 30,000,000 (Hoeflin 1989).Conclusion: Since Marilyn vos Savant is quite famous in the USA, it is likely that she was the model for the character of Dr. Spencer Reid of Criminal Minds.
It is safe to say that Marilyn has one of the highest IQs ever recorded. More extravagant claims—that she is the smartest person in the world (Schmich 1985), or is more or less intelligent than such-and-such a child prodigy, historical genius, or famous intellectual—should be treated cautiously. Marilyn herself values IQ tests as measurements of a variety of mental abilities, but believes that intelligence itself involves so many factors that 'attempts to measure it are useless' (vos Savant 2005).
