IQ tests seem far too random to measure anything. As a 14 year old I achieved 167 on a Mensa test. However, I did not fancy paying to have my tests marked afterward, what a crock. However, on the television and internet ones I can only score around 120/130, respectively...

The entire thing is clearly rubbish. Isaac Newton, please stop saying regards at the end of every post. It isn't really necessary, is it?

is anyone else here actually in mensa?

(i havn't bothered to read all the posts, i'm quite tired really)
I was a member for a year. Mainly because i wanted a pen (I like pens) and i thought it would sound good on my UCAS and Tesco application forms - to which i got rejected, by the way.

It was shi*. The magazine was full of pompous tw*ts who somehow thought they were better than everyone else and arranged special 'moots' for everyone. All seemed a bit weird to me.

I joined thinking it would help my UCAS, and true, i did get the place i wanted but i somehow doubt it was due to Mensa membership. It's not the sort of exclusive club everyone used to think it was where you'd get revered as some sort of a god. Everyone knows how unreliable IQ is now and the only thing that will spring to mind when you tell an intelligent person that you are in Mensa is what a pretentious wanke* you are.

Needless to say, my membership lapsed 6 months ago and i have no intention of re-joining.

Lol, yeah it was for shelf-stacking. Although i think the major flaw in the application was the fact that i'm left-handed and thus my entire form was smudged.

Maybe that's because Tesco need robots, not intelligent thinking staff memebrs.

Asda took me, be that was on nights and they were working at about 50% staffing levels!

I lasted a whole three weeks or so. Stacking and packing all night just bored the hell out of me!
