Dr. Clarence Johnson, PhD
Clarence Johnson was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in a household where education was encouraged, and love for others was emphasized. Much of my joy in life came while attending John Adams High School. I met many outstanding people and forged friendships that still exist to this day. I believe that my experiences there are instrumental in my current success.
I am a member of the International Society for Philosophical Enquiry (ISPE). ISPE is the third oldest high IQ society in the world after Mensa (98%) and Intertel (99%). The only criterion for admission is a score on any standard psychometric test of intelligence reflecting ability at the 99.9th percentile. I have an IQ of 180 which is the reason that I was admitted into the society.
In addition, I have also written several books, including the book Business Statistics: Clearly Explained, which is a textbook that is being used at a major university. My goal is to help students be more successful in mathematics and in life.
