Are You Mensa Smart?

I always thought I was smart. I always scored in the 99th percentile on all the standardized tests and such. (Although the SATs were a bit more challenging, but I still scored up there.) But the other day there was a short lifestyle segment on the local news about Mensa, the International High IQ Society. To join Mensa, you must have attained a score within the upper two percent of the general population on an approved intelligence test “that has been properly administered and supervised.”

This peaked my curiosity. I went on their Website and started taking the 30-minute, 30-question Mensa Workout. I did not adhere to the time constraint, but I will say that I think I spent up to 20 minutes on a few of the questions – and those weren’t even the math ones!

This same segment that intrigued me to the Website featured the newest Mensa member, a 5-year-old boy. Seriously.

If anyone wants some brain stretching, I’d dare say the Mensa Workout is fun – but it was certainly refreshing to feel the cerebral gears spinning.
