Mensa is not for assholes.
I am a Mensan.
I got 156 which is the top 1% on the Raven's Progressive Matrices test.
Most folks in Mensa does not think they are geniuses,
and Mensa itself does not state that it is a community for "geniuses" or "the gifted."
Mensans are aware of that Mensa is just a "high IQ society."
They also are aware of the most of the IQ tests have not much predictive validity.
People with high "scores" in IQ tests, nothing else.
Mensa is not for self-esteem. I am in Mensa just because I like to meet people.
There are a bunch of societies out there require much high IQ scores.
For example, Mega Society(http://www.megasociety.net
) requires top 0.1% IQ (IQ 175 in LAIT).
