Mensa, the high IQ society, provides a forum for intellectual exchange among its members. There are members in more than 100 countries around the world.
Activities include the exchange of ideas through lectures, discussions, journals, special-interest groups, and local, regional, national and international gatherings; the investigations of members' opinions and attitudes; and assistance to researchers, inside and outside Mensa, in projects dealing with intelligence or Mensa.
With more than 57,000 members, American Mensa is the largest national Mensa operating under the auspices of Mensa International, Ltd. Members of American Mensa range in age from 2 to 106. They include engineers, homemakers, teachers, actors, athletes, students and CEOs, and they share one trait — high intelligence. To qualify for Mensa, they scored in the top 2 percent of the general population on an accepted standardized intelligence test.
