Mens a offers test and meeting of mind
By Donna Slsson
People who are curious about their
intelligence level might want to con
sider taking the Mensa Test April 28.
Each year, Mensa gives a set of two
multiple-choice, written intelligence
tests, consisting of the Cattell test and
the California Adult Development test.
Anyone scoring in the top 93 percent i3
then eligible for membership in Mensa,
a high-1 Q society, said Jack Wunder
lich, proctor of the test.
The tests are sent to New York for
scoring, then returned by mail to the
participant. It's all completely confi
dential, said Jerry Baugh, a four-year
member and past Mensa president.
Those with qualifying scores will be
invited to join Mensa, Baugh said. The
invitation explains the yearly mem
bership dues which are $30 for non
students and $15 for full-time stu
dents. From the general population, one
out of every 50 people usually qualifies
for Mensa, Baugh said. However, he
said, that includes all levels of in-

Those in Lincoln who have taken the
test have had a higher success rate,
Baugh said. About 75 percent quali
fied, he said.
Mensa is a national organization
consisting of 150 local groups, Baugh
said. Lincoln, with 80 members, has
one of the smaller chapters, he said.
Members of Lincoln's Mensa group
range from 18-year-olds to 70-year-olds.
Membership is about 60 percent
male and 40 percent female, Baugh
said. There are people from varied
walks of life in the group. However,
there are few students and no profes
sors, he said.
The Lincoln Mensa group meets on a
regular basis, and some of its past
activities included tours and lectures.
Last year the group toured a computer
complex and a radio station, Wunder

people only associate with others in
their own field, Mensa gives them a
chance to get out of this rut, he said.
Another aspect of Mensa is its spe
cial interest groups, both local and
national, which correspond through
newsletters, Baugh said. For example,
he said, in Lincoln there is a group of
people who like to watch the British
science fiction show "Doctor Who."

"By that time, there will

Rothell said in the fut
