Join PENSA*, the slow and socratic IQ Society

Mensa, our competitor, claims that: "1 in 50 people have an IQ in the top 2% (sic!) that makes them eligible to join Mensa" (1 in 50 people makes obviously 2%... It's a tautology, but thanks so much for the precision!). We, International Pensa Society, confirm that 1 in 2 people have an IQ in the top 50% that makes them eligible to join Pensa (can we say that "50% of all people are below average"?). To join Pensa, the first step is to take an online test (try first our quizzes) and, if the results are promising, take a longer unsupervised test HERE . The average IQ we demand from you is 1 GigaBrain but this value depends upon the measurement scale used (Fahrenheit, Richter, Ohm, etc)... Even if the results aren't promising, always remember you're unique! (just like everyone else)

*Pensa = Think, in Italian
