Now there is another way to stay connected to Central Indiana Mensa: Meetup!

According to the Meetup.com website,

Meetup is the world’s largest network of local groups. Meetup makes it easy for anyone to organize a local group or find one of the thousands already meeting up face-to-face. More than 9,000 groups get together in local communities each day, each one with the goal of improving themselves or their communities.

Meetup’s mission is to revitalize local community and help people around the world self-organize. Meetup believes that people can change their personal world, or the whole world, by organizing themselves into groups that are powerful enough to make a difference.

 

Joining Meetup is free, and is a great way to stay in touch and get the latest information on news and events. Meetup will send you updates and notices about your groups’ events, including any last-minute changes to already-scheduled events. You can also use the site to suggest events, RSVP to events, have discussions on line, or even find other groups devoted to your myriad other interests!

Mensa Admissions Testing 2014

by on August 24, 2012 at 3:33 pm

Mensa Admissions Testing will be held at the Wayne Library, 198 South Girls School Road, Indianapolis, Indiana on Saturdays in alternate Months.

10:00 – registration begins

11:00 – testing begins

Registration takes only about 5-10 minutes. The fee of $40 is payable by cash, check, or any major credit card. Candidates between 14-17 years old are required to have one of their parents also sign the registration form in the presence of the proctor at the testing site. (Testing for candidates under 14 years old is not currently permitted – candidates under 14 may apply to the American Mensa, Ltd. national office in Arlington, Texas using approved prior testing evidence. A partial list of accepted tests and scores is available at http://www.us.mensa.org/join/testscores/. Further questions about prior evidence admission to Mensa may be answered by contacting Mary Spencer at 817-607-0060, extension 5529.)

No smoking, calculators, or scratch paper are allowed. Candidates are permitted to take each of the two tests comprising the Mensa Admissions Test battery only once in their lives. Candidates who qualify on either test will be invited to become a member. Please bring one or two #2 pencils. I also have plenty of extras.

QUESTIONS:  Feel free to e-mail me at blazingstar32@hotmail.com, or telephone me at 317-240-3077 at home, or 317-431-8645 on my cell phone. Good luck to all candidates.

Do You Have What It Takes?

by on April 13, 2012 at 5:19 pm

Do you have what it takes to join Mensa?  You probably do, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this.  Think of it this way; 1 in 50 people already qualify, and most don’t even know it!  In the U.S. alone, six million people already qualify, but may not know it.  Are you one of them?

The only requirement to join Mensa is to have an IQ in the top 2% of the population.  Depending on the test, you need an IQ of at least 130-132 to qualify.  American Mensa accepts scores from approximately 200 standardized intelligence tests. Here is a list of the most common ones.  Schools typically will have your records on file, so give them a call.  If you have the documentation on hand, then go ahead and begin the prior evidence application process.

Don’t have documentation?  Not a problem.  Mensa also offers our very own admission testing in your area.  The test is approximately two hours and offered to anyone 14 years or older.  Fill out the form on this page and we will contact you about your local testing dates and locations.

Are you ready to give it a shot?  Take a look at this link from the national site to get you started. If you need help, we’re always here to point you in the right direction.

Are you ready to give it a shot?  If you have qualifying documentation, print your application and send it in!
