I'm thinking about joining Mensa and I was wondering what experiences others have had with them. I really don't know if it's something I want to do or not. What are the benefits of joining?

Yes I do have some doubts, that's why I was asking. As to why I would think about joining, this is going to sound bad however I put it, but it's nice to talk to people at your own level for a change.why do you feel the need to join? surely you must have some doubts if you are asking others about their experiences?
I disagree - I don't think it's jealousy, but a justified reaction to people thinking they are, in fact, better than other people.Originally posted by LogicalAtheist

We commonly call this jealousy. People will up and down refute any claim that makes someone else "better" in any way, than them. It's just jealousy. Don't you want the general population to hate you because your intelligent, rich, famous, or attractive?
