Participaremos de documentário na TV


É com grande prazer que anunciamos o amável convite enviado por nosso amigo Albert Frank, para participar de um documentário para TV e possível livro sobre pessoas com QI no nível de raridade acima de 1 em 1.000.000. O convite foi enviado a Albert e lhe foi solicitado que indicasse pessoas neste level. Para nossa grata surpresa, o único nome indicado por Albert para o documentário foi de Hindemburg Melão Jr. :-)

O programa incluirá entrevistas e uma mesa redonda com a participação de membros de Pars Society, Mega Society (registrada no Guinness de 1990 como a sociedade de alto QI mais exclusiva do mundo) e outras das mais seletas sociedades de alto QI. Tão logo tenhamos conhecimento de mais detalhes, este artigo será ampliado.

Brevemente viajaremos a Los Angeles, para participar deste trabalho.

Meu muito obrigado ao amigo Albert pela lembrança.

Assunto: high IQ book/TV project update

Hi Melao:

The project is coming along well. I interviewed Irene Alexandra recently. She's delightful! I will have a US publisher soon and will let you know the schedule of events as they unfold.

In the meantime, I am writing to ask your help in getting email addresses for some of your Sigma members. I would like to contact the following individuals for possible participation in the book:


Also, I want to learn to play chess better. I haven't played in 20 years, though I once beat a guy rated a US master. Is there one or two books you would recommend? I don't want to be overwhelmed as I do not have much time to devote to hobbies.

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,
John Hallenborg


Hi Melao:

I was referred by Baran Yonter and Albert Frank.

I am a writer (30 years pro exp.) based in Los Angeles, developing a high-profile TV documentary series about the lives and times of very high IQ individuals. I am hoping you would like to participate as an interview subject and as a member of unstructured roundtable discussions. You could either fly to L.A. or we could come to you for an interview only. Expenses paid, of course.

Please advise.

Best regards,


Dear Friend Melao,

I received this mail from Los Angeles: To the second mail (about + 5 s.d. people that could be interested to be invited to Los Angeles (!)), I spoke (only!) of you and give them your address.

It could be nice and interesting, what do you think? We could go there !!




Hello Albert:

I am a writer (30 years exp) based in Los Angeles, currently developing a TV documentary series and possibly a book about people with very high IQs. I got your name from the PARS list of members, after Baran Yonter was referred to me. The project will be about the life, work and times of such exceptional individuals. Please consider participating in a videotaped interview plus other aspects of the project, depending on your inclinations and availability. We would either send a production team to you or you could join us in Los Angeles next year for a roundtable Q and A and other activities. All expenses paid, of course. Thank you for your attention.

Best regards,


Thanks for responding. I will review your site and soon write a summary of the project and get it to you and the others who might participate.

Do you have others in mind who might want to participate? I am looking for 99.9999% IQ incidence or greater.

Thanks, John
