What is Mensa

Mensa is for those who rejoice in the exercise of the mind. If you enjoy mental challenges and revel in the interplay of ideas, Mensa is an organization that will stretch your mind and expand your horizons.

Mensa is an international society that has one -- and only one -- unique qualification for membership: you must score in the top 2% of the population on a standardized IQ test.

Mensa does not hold any opinion or have, or express, any political or religious views.
