    My only experience with Mensa is through a friend of mine. For some reason a lot of people think that his pushiness/forcefulness makes him dumb. There are always interesting reactions when they try to pair their view of him with their view of Mensans.

    Ragingkat knew exactly why I posted that image and how it connected directly with your quote.

    Let me explain the obvious.

    Here's your quote:

    "Interesting to see so many people who are passionately against an organization they know almost nothing about personally,
    just because it has an element of exclusion."


    Instantaneously I burst out laughing and thought of the KKK.
    Here you are thinking it's "unusual" for people to be passionately against an organization they know nothing about personally,
    and yet millions of people are indeed passionately against an organization such as the KKK.

    In other words, yes, you can indeed be passionately against an organization without having personal experience with them.
    Do I need "personal experience" with terrorist organizations to be passionately against them?

    Uh, no.

    If you still think I was comparing Mensa to the KKK, literally, I don't know how you can call yourself an intuitive.

    Dagnamit! So does that mean the cross burning is off following the lecture on nanotechnology in medicine?

    I qualify, but I don't really see the point of it. And looking at the poll, the other NFs don't either .

    I'm trying to find my old IQ tests but I don't know where they are in my papers. It's funny to see my report cards and other dumb stuff!

    Joined because I heard some girl I hardly knew call me "ditzy". It made me feel better (even if I am a ditz to her), and haven't been to even one meeting or told many people since. You all don't count because you don't know who I am, right?

    Hmmm...Maybe I am a ditz, though...Showed up to work with two different shoes on once...:blushing:

    My GRE scores qualify at 1920. Fortunately I took it during the years it included the Analytic section which was my high score at the 92 percentile. Language was my lowest score. I wouldn't care to join necessarily for myself, but there might be a way to work it into a resume' because my field is competitive beyond much hope. I think any external validation on paper can't hurt.

    My observation was an expression that people did not have knowledge, but were so willing to judge. For the sake of the OP or any discussion, it's usually an encouraged thing for people to brush up on a topic. My observation had nothing to do with having experience, it had to do with information they had gathered instead of taking the second/third/fourth hand information passed by others. Ignorance is a leading cause in conflict, wilful ignorance is even worse. I would want someone to call me out if I were speaking about a subject that I did not put any effort into understanding.

    Using your terrorist analogy, do I know that there are organizations who cause disruption and fear to create the chaos necessary for their other goals? Absolutely. Do I research them before I speak about them with other people? Absolutely.

    Also, your last line mirrors your signature very well. I am amused temporarily, but mostly bored.

    I use it on my resume, and yes, it does help. My hiring manager for my current position was a member, so at least it got me noticed. It can't hurt (well, maybe a little on here).
