  • Yes, I know several people who paid their $55 and took the test.
  • My oldest brother is a member of MENSA. He is extremely bright and has just been awarded a Fellowship at the University where he works. :)
  • I got the chance to join about ten years ago, but I couldn't see the point; I only took the test out of curiousity.
  • There are several users in here who are members, but I don't remember their names. They are quite pleased with MENSA I did not join but had my test.
  • I was offered the test a couple of times, but didn't want to spend the money. I took the Weschler Adult Verbal in the 70's as part of my attorney's preparation for my divorce hearing and assumed I may be able to qualify from what I was told. They didn't give me a score. I don't know if they do now but they didn't that long ago.
  • I'm a member of Menses. There's a meeting every month at my pad;)
  • No but I saw a Columbo once where the MENSA guy thought he was smart enough to fool COlumbo. And nobody ever fools Columbo!
  • I don't know. I know some people who have the I.Q. of Genius and above, but they are very modest and not braggarts so I don't know and I wouldn't ask. :)
  • I know someone who refused to join them.He told me that he does not like to be a member of a group,especially one which considers itself elitist.He's awesome:)
  • I know 2 people who 'qualified' to join mensa but refused. They said that the members there were arrogant & one of them said that if they were going to join a club, it wouldn't be one where people sit around & talk about how smart they are (I'm not actually sure if that's what goes on or not).
  • Yes, I have experience of it. It's overrated and serves no useful purpose.
  • Yes. Does that make me a better person?
  • There are several MENSA members here at AB. I can think of two right off the top of my head. Neither of these people are the type to "Toot their own horns" but you can rest assured "they are here". You can take the test if you like. YOU may be the newest member! http://www.mensa.org/index0.php?page=12 http://www.mensa.org/index0.php?page=10 http://www.mensa.org/contact.php?action=show
  • I used to own a Mensa book, I did a lot of the puzzles. I am not a member though.
  • my old boss was a MENSA member so he said.
  • My grandfather was in it. A bunch of bastards that think they are smarter and better than everyone. That`s what he told me.
  • As a matter of fact I am. I have been creating its parody site for the last year http://www.dumbsa.com/ When I applied for college I took a battery of tests, one of which was the Wechsler. I actually told myself that I had to go to one meeting in my lifetime. Maybe it was the wrong meeting. Wow! It was very bizarre. There was a person there who talked to herself the entire time. There also was a college professor, a teacher and many other people with different occupations. Are some people arrogant? I am sure there are. I didn't find anyone to be. The test is based on critical thinking and problem solving skills. Belonging to Mensa also looks good on a resume.
  • I tried to join them once, but I was too smart apparently.
  • I'm a member of Mensa and I'm not afraid to say so, in spite of the amount of dreadful comments against it here by people who have no idea what they are talking about. I met my current and my former husband in Mensa. I have been a member since 1970. Among the 50,000 members in the US and nearly that many more world wide, you will find all sorts of people, just as you can find on Answerbag.
  • My friend of 40+ years is a member of Mensa. Over the years he has introduced me to many of his friends some who are also Mensa members. Each has been a good conversationalist so I can provide only positive feedback on Mensa people. They come from all professions and have a wide variety of thought on various subjects. None supported their position in a discussion by waving a Mensa card to claim superiority.
