Oh, so THAT'S why!

I have been informed, by a supporter of a certain former mayor from Vermont, that there's only one reason anyone has for supporting Hillary: "gender reactionary hysteria."

This same person, who professes to be a member of Mensa and uses that status frequently in an effort to shut down discussion, is apparently quite thin skinned. She did not take it well when her "explanation" had me laughing so hard that I nearly peed myself.

2. I have never been impressed by people who brag about being Mensa members.

Truly intelligent people realize how little they really know and would never brag about their intelligence.

Mensa membership is just based on IQ score anyway, which is a very culture - specific and not a definitive measure of intelligence.

4. Yep.

 

If you'd pay for this you're truly lacking in confidence and would be better off paying a counselor and explore why.


Annual dues are $70.00 unless specified in a multi-year or life plan. Memberships for additional Mensan family members are available for $47.00/membership and may only be purchased in single-year increments

6. Here is one opinion

Who is the most intelligent woman in the world?

She went on to be listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the “World's Highest IQ,” and, as a result, gained international fame. Despite her status as the "world's smartest woman,” vos Savant maintained that attempts to measure intelligence were “useless,” and she rejected IQ tests as unreliable.

10. I have been acquainted with many Mensa qualified people who never went the

Mensa membership route, it is not a marker for me. Now those who became Rhodes Scholars is different.

11. The nice thing about posting anonymously is that you can make any claims to fame that you wish.

You can create any persona or resume you wish, and no one can disprove it. Of course, as long as you remain anonymous, you can't prove who or what you claim to be either.

Anonymous posting both protects and weakens the one who posts.

13. So a Mensa member with sexist tendencies, has the the view that "other people's

opinions don't count", because they are supposedly intellectually superior, I think has just demonstrated why IQ has nothing to do with common sense
