Denmark Mensa

I scored a 162 on the Raven Matrices, and passed the Denmark Mensa Admission test when I was 14. I'm a member of Mensa, but I can't seem to pass the WAIS at the required 98th percentile. I know Mensa would have accepted this test too, so it irritates me to know that I can't seem to score high enough.

I scored a 186 on the Mensa Denmark tests... this was just after getting out of bed. I'll take it again when I'm fully alert. What exactly do people do at Mensa? Apart from being a member of a pretentious group of individuals with a certificate to justify their pretension, what is the benefit of being recruited? I'd imagine there'd be career prospects and other such opportunities that would come easier for a Mensan.

It's worth repeating:)))

I passed WAIS with 140, which I took to mean 98% percentile [maybe it doesn't; who cares, really?], since it was good enough for MENSA USA who accepted me on its weight alone. I was a member over 10 years and grew weary of paying dues and listening to the endless "well I scored in the 99% percentile, or I scored in the 99.6th percentile. I mean, really - that DOESN'T make you god and me a cretin, can't we get past the posturing already and enjoy some intelligent dialog instead of constant competition? It smacks of an inferiority complex.

Mine was one group in one geographic area. For all I know other groups are interesting to be in as I hope yours is. I find people of high intelligence to be more interesting not because I\'m a snob but because average people frequently cannot hold up their end of a dialog. :(

No matter how smart you are, if you don't know how to communicate with people on their level, you'll never enjoy a conversation.
