American Mensa members are, as a group, diverse in their ages, interests and stages of life, but they do have a few things in common.
- First, Mensa members are, overall, highly educated with strong incomes and influential occupations.
- They are lifelong learners. New topics, new experiences and new resources are important to them as these are the things that challenge and inspire them.
- They’re bright as well. They’ve scored in the top 2 percent on a standardized intelligence test, which means they are likely to evaluate and make decisions quickly.
- They are curious and many are highly social. When they encounter new things, they ask lots of questions and share their discoveries with friends and colleagues.
