I heard stories his IQ score was 180 at age 12 or so. Could be a myth created to deify him...

In any case, he was was admitted in a STEM PhD program at Stanford.

Having said that, I have never heard him say anything I would call impressive. I found much more impressive people in grad school, namely, physics grad students. I am tempted to conclude that Musk dumbs down his speech to cater to idiot investors. Since he's not exactly eloquent, it should not be that difficult.

The crux of the matter is that Musk is smart enough to understand that if people perceive him as a brilliant visionary genius, then he will have access to resources to do what a brilliant visionary genius would do. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy. If enough people believe in it, it becomes real.
