Have you got what it takes to be one of the cleverest people in Ireland – officially?
Mensa, the high IQ society, will be holding a supervised test session in Galway on Saturday, October 25, to give residents chance to find out their IQ score.
Mensa membership is available to anyone with an IQ in the top two per cent by population. The session will be held at Flannery’s Hotel in Dublin Road, at 2pm. As well as finding out their IQ, those who take the test will also get a free personality profile from Mensa. Mensa has more than 900 members across Ireland as a whole, and 16 in County Galway.
Members are of all ages and from all walks of life, who enjoy a varied social events programme and keep in touch through a monthly magazine, regional newsletters and more than 100 special interest groups ranging from classical music to chocolate.
The supervised test costs £24.95 and must be booked in advance. The test is not suitable for children under 10 and a half, who are admitted to Mensa on the evidence of an educational psychologist. Under-16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Everyone who achieves an IQ score within the top two per cent of the population will be invited to join Mensa.
