What is Mensa?

Mensa is an international society with only one requirement for membership: a score in the top 2 percent on a standardized IQ test. Mensa follows no political agenda and holds no opinions, but rather serves two purposes:

(1) as a social organization, it provides a means of assembly and communication for its members, and

(2) under the auspices of MERF (Mensa Education and Research Foundation), Mensa promotes research and understanding in the area of human intelligence.
