Speaking about his brilliance 5 years after he joined Mensa, Ramarni said he gained his intelligence out of having a desire to understand everything he comes across.
It’s probably a place of me not knowing something, and from that ignorance having a desire to understand it, to know it. It’s about finding… what you want to learn about,” he told BBC.
