What is Mensa?
Mensa is an apolitical and non-religious association of people with a high IQ that was founded in England in 1946 and has been present in Mexico since 2007. Mensa accepts as members whose IQ is within the top 2% of the general population and offers them the possibility of enriching each other’s company and participating in a wide range of activities.
Mensa Mexico is part of the largest and oldest intellectual society in the world, Mensa International, which comprises more than 110,000 members in 100 countries. Its name comes from Latin and means “table.” It refers to a round table of dialogue, where race, religious creed, nationality, age, political position, ideology, educational level and socioeconomic status are irrelevant, since members have equal rights and obligations.
Its main objectives are: To provide members with a socially and intellectually stimulating environment, identify and foster intelligence for the benefit of humanity, and motivate research, characteristics and uses of intelligence.
