    now, I know that everyone at PF hates MENSA immensly, but I don't care.

    I'm wondering if anyone here know's how to join. it seems like the MENSA test is figuring out how to become a member. I know I'm qualified. I'm in the international high iq society, and my iq is about 135. but how to join?

    I'm not quite sure but I think that you need a genius IQ to join MENSA which I think starts at 160. Maybe I should check first huh?

    Ok.. so appearantly since scores can vary depending on the test you took the criteria stands at testing in the top 2% for whatever intelligence test you take. There's more info on the site.
    Since geniuses tend to be absent minded I doubt they will mind your lack of ability to use Google. :tongue:

    I have a big problem in taking any kind of test which are abit long! :grumpy: I get tired and bored too soon and I just answer the last questions randomly! :rofl: How can I be more patient?

    140 and up is near-genius/genius level.
    In some countries apearantly Mensa members can get special credit cards and insurance. A friend of mine suggests that to quell an ignorant population all Mensa members should be issued a firearm and a liscence to shoot people for being idiots.

    Based on IQ or based on actions? Cause I don't feel like getting shot.

    Yeah I know, I didn't think it was avery good idea either. :wink:

    To me, IQ never mattered much because I never actually knew what mine was or could be until tonight. I never let it hinder me or haunt me throughout my life, you know?

    Just becuase I'm 104 doesn't mean I can't achieve my goals of becoming a nuclear engineer. ;)

    Hmm--I took the "Tickle" IQ test (searched google for "IQ test")-->and got 136. Where exactly does that fit in on the IQ curve? Can I really trust that IQ test??

    **Btw, minimum IQ to join MENSA is 140, according to http://www.cableforum.co.uk/board/archive/index.php/t-2433.html. Smart indeed, for them to have their own IQ test, b/c online is risky business; there are sites with really WEAK IQ tests...:frown:
