Well I scored 14 out of 25. Come on take the test. Just so you know I dont feel bad because I come from a family of hillbillys.

[mensa.org...]

I wonder how the rest of you will fare on this one.

"I can possibly pass the Mensa IQ test..."

Ive done the supervised exams and although there's a bit more pressure (like 2 minute time limits for some sections!) I faired a bit better than one the one above.

Some more puzzles at British Mensa:

24/30 FWIW, the test said this score is very good and that
I would have a good chance of passing a Mensa membership test.

Also FWIW, I used to be a member of Mensa. I stopped being a
dues paying member many years ago.

IIRC, one simply needs to score in the top 2 percent of a general
intelligence test to qualify for membership. So 1 in every
50 people on average qualifies; one doesn't need to be a
"super genius" to get in -- rather just "gifted", as many here
likely are.

Also, while many likely imagine Mensa folks as a bunch of
stuffy professor types discussing the most minute details
of very boring stuff, the folks I met at Mensa gatherings
were quite the opposite. They were quite lively, fun loving
and spirited...and not at all interested in posturing or
snobery of any sort.

FWIW,

Louis

NFFC,

You got 31 out of 30? Did you get the "cloaked" quiz
offering an extra credit questions for those finishing early?

jk, ;-)

"Which of the following sentences given below..."

Hmm... was this thing written by a Mensan?

I think someone should come up with a bone head test that only knuckle heads can join.

Criteria
- high school grad only.
- scored less than half on the mensa test.
- iq less than 75.
- cant pronounce posthumously correctly. (just a side note I have beenn struggling with that one for about a year now.)
- can make anything out of Duct Tape including wallets.

Thats all I can think of at the moment. Chime in with more.

For those who do badly on this test there is always the option of joining the sister organization, Denza.

When I was a kid I took a lot of grief for being too smart. I was hoping this test would give me a chance to prove that I wasn't all that smart -- but I goofed again. 28/30

Yeah, that makes it tough. I was lucky 'parachute' comes from the French :).

Hmmm... That test must have been designed by americans. British folks would have known that there are such things as tealight, teabreak, and teatime.

I thought that but then i didn't know what a tea light was!

A tea light is one of those little candles in an aluminium shell that you put under your teapot so it stays warm (at least that's what they're called in German... ;)).
