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).
