    Post Anyone from MENSA here?

    Hello everyone. First post here. I would like to know if anyone here is from MENSA. What do mensans do? Also, how do you enter MENSA? I once saw several IQ tests that purported to simulate MENSA tests, however, they seemed to be tests that required esoteric puzzle solving skills rather than real intelligence tests. Anyone say anything about that?

    I believe AWAR is a member of MENSA. Apparently, membership requires that one maintains a few good gaming records, especially in Tetris-related games.

    I joined Mensa about five years ago to be able to put it on my resume

    What Mensans do depends on what regional chapter you belong to. Kentuckiana Mensa has a monthly gathering, a bi-monthly Lunch Bunch, a tavern-sponsored quiz show, etc. Mensans also sponsor SIGs -- Special Interest Groups -- like gardening groups, art groups, etc.

    If you would like to take the test to apply for membership, contact your local chapter and they'll give you the when and where info. You can also submit the results from standardized IQ tests you may have taken in school, the military, etc., for consideration.

    I took the MENSA test a few years ago, and did really well on it. I could join and actually wanted to, but I have long forgotten about it.

    Going to the MENSA website would be a good place to start.

    I took the mini quiz on the MESA website and failed miserably. I guess I'm out.

    I have once ordered a MENSA test, and even completed it - but never sent it back for evaluation.
