High-IQ Society Mensa to offer admission test


DAYTON — Dayton Area Mensa, the local chapter of the international high IQ society, will hold a testing session on Friday, March 17 from 4 – 6 p.m. at the Kettering-Moraine Branch Library at 3496 Far Hills Ave., Kettering. Test takers should arrive about 15-20 minutes prior to testing to complete registration. Each test taker must have a photo ID and the $40 testing fee.

Those who score in the top two percent of either of two tests of logic and deductive reasoning are eligible for membership.

The test is open to anyone age 14 and older, but parental permission is required for those ages 14-17. The test Mensa uses is not valid for persons under fourteen years of age, who may qualify by other means. Applicants of any age can also use prior evidence from a wide variety of other standardized IQ tests to qualify. If appropriate please contact membership@dayton.us.mensa.org or 937-878-1467 for additional information.

Members of American Mensa range in age from 2 to 102. They come from all backgrounds, walks of life, occupations, races, and ethnic groups. They share only one trait — high intelligence. The Dayton chapter regularly organizes lunch and dinner groups, games nights, pub crawls, movie nights, and visits to various educational, cultural, and just plain fun events around the area.

For additional information about the test or to preregister, contact Todd Bowman at 937-546-7885 or testing@dayton.us.mensa.org. Preregistration is encouraged.
