All kinds of people are in Mensa

You’ll find all sorts of people in Mensa. But Mensans worldwide have one thing in common: they’re bright.
Mensa is an international society with only one criterion for membership: a score on a standardised IQ test higher than that of 98 per cent of the general population.

So no matter what you think or how you vote, why not consider joining us? We’re always on the lookout for new members to further enrich our diversity of abilities, interests and opinions.

Mental and social stimulation.

If you enjoy brain-teasers, stimulating articles and lively exchanges of views, you’ll appreciate TableAus, our bi-monthly magazine, which incorporates the Mensa World Journal. If you like to discuss world problems or the latest in science and technology, you’re sure to find like-minded people at a Mensa event. Perhaps you just want to relax and exchange repartee with others who’ll get your jokes and add their own quips. Many find Mensa a welcome relief.

Mensa offers opportunities to meet people, exchange ideas and make new friends at your intellectual level. Quick minds are welcomed; instant communication and comprehension are the rule rather than the exception. The Mensa network is not limited to Australia, with International gatherings in America, Europe and Asia and a chance to meet fellow Mensans when you travel the world.
