Omg, you people are still harping on this? What a waste of time. It's "mensa", not "mensu", and I have taken a mensa pretest and was invited to take their acceptance exam, which I may do eventually. Anyway, it's ridiculous that I even feel the need to reply to this nonsense. I honestly wouldn't care if my IQ was less than average. I've spent my entire life not living up to my "potential", and have been reminded of it on numerous occasions. Intelligence can be a curse as much as a blessing. Just the fact that I applied a number to my intelligence seems to have started an avalanche of ridicule. Though my own intelligence is of little concern to myself, it has become apparent that it must be important to some people. And though I do not consider myself to be in competition with anyone, it has become obvious, from reading the posts in this thread, that perhaps I'm not among as many "equals" as I once thought. May you find peace (and maybe something positive to fill the void created by your own insecurities.) May the least secure be the first to reply.
