Rank: 4

Post time 2012-5-31 19:45:30 |Display all floors
According to  Mensa, an organization that register high IQ percentile population across the world, they are 2 males to every one females members:

at IQ 130 (+2SD) the ratio becomes highly skewed with male at 83% to female at 18%

at IQ 145 (+3SD) the ratio becomes male at 88% to female at 12%

at IQ 160 (+4SD) the ratio is 97% male to female at 3%

We all know males perform better than female on average IQ tests, but why are the numbers so skewed the higher IQ level we go?

Does Mr. Seneca actually post anything nice about other members or is he simply the forum's biggest bully wannabe?

Does it kon-sider the possibility that women don't bother joining MENSA?

I think it's cause not so many female are qualified, but why is the number so skew the higher IQ level we go? It's not only Mensa statistic, all major IQ test in the world have showed there are very few female geniuses, but far more male geniuses!
