Default Does anybody know of any good Mensa forums or forums with people like Mensa?

I am looking to get in contact with "gifted" individuals associated with organizations such as Mensa... I would like to know what forums would be best for this... I am not looking to take IQ tests... I notice that the people of Mensa on some of the sites sound similar to me... Any ideas?

What is your motivation for hanging out with other "gifted" individuals?

If I can't communicate with somebody, then how can I work out my ideas? I already got banned on several forums, so I am pretty pissed off. If nobody wants to answer the question, then fine...

This is something I see rather often. Why do people believe that just because someone is smart, they are automatically competent at everything? It seems like such an obvious fallacy but apparently other smart people fall for that.
Here is a rather interesting Cracked article where this is taken to the logical extreme and shows that even Nobel prize winners really shouldn't do anything outside their specialization: click

Mensa is a "group" of "smart" "people". I assume that there would be at least one member that would be competent in designing a website that is not ugly.

Those who hate MENSA please line up on the right; Those indifferent go to the left. Then we will have a battle royale. There is no reason why we can't settle this.

Very good. For that you get to pass thru the portals of MENSA. Now where are you? You may be a master manipulator. Even a masturdebater. Be sure to shut the door when you leave and don't let any of them out.

Those of us on the outside, our motto: WE HATE MENSA!

I had money, fortune, good looks, a babe on either arm. I was fleet of foot and fast on the draw. They still wouldn't let me into MENSA. For that I HATE MENSA.

You too can hate MENSA. Join the anti-MENSA club. Qualifications?

No, it's okay. MENSA really does suck. It's not like you get together and talk about how to end world problems, travel the stars, or make cold fusion. It's just a bunch of people who happen to be smart, and they gather together and talk about their lives, just like everyone else does. It's not a solve-world-problems thing, it's a prestige thing. "I have a MENSA card, I'm SOOOOO smart! Go me, yay!"

These forums are filled with mindless pleasure seekers... Perhaps I am looking for somebody with moral principles...

Yes, Zeldon, you have people who are pleasure seekers. You have just seen examples and they are bad people. However we can attain a higher morality. We can either take it upon ourselves to do so or look to others, but can we trust them? I admire your spunk.

I'm going to start a group titled "People who are at least as smart as squirrels, but not quite the intelligence of bottle-nosed dolphins".

Zeldon. If it's morality you are seeking look to ProxyAmen. He is not all he seems to be. His morals reach to the highest in spite of appearances. He is not to be dismissed as are some of the others around here. I do not speak of this lightly.

I commend you on your search and hope you find what you are looking for. Sometimes it takes a little digging.
