When I was at school, a master with a taste for horrible puns put me in the "grossly intelligent" category (ie 144 and up).


This makes me intelligent enough to agree with Fjool's observation that the tests are very culturally based and not worth that much. If you were a member of one of the tribes Ray Mears likes visiting, you'd be rated an idiot if you couldn't survive in the wilderness / jungle, and there probably aren't many Mensa members who'd pass muster there.


All isn't lost if you're not Mensa material, though (the "brightest" 2%). If you're a member of the "stupidest 98%", there's always Densa. Wikipedia has an article, and it puts the whole IQ business into perspective. :)
