In one of the threads, Mike said he failed the Mensa test.

a Porn star has passed the test: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asia_Carrera

I am somewhat surprised that a porn star passed the test. (I'm more surprised that she chose to be a porn star given her prodigy level accomplishments as a teenager.)

and I'm shocked that Mike didn't. (Mensa, not porn star) :P

I guess the test is more than math and logic puzzles?

I congratulate Ms. Carrera for passing the test. As for me, I think it was the verbal section that did me in.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

not much math, apart from simple arithmetics involved with the logic part. There is some geometry involved.
with his analytic mind set, he should have no problem passing, unless he screwed up real bad in the geometry.

I've heard before that there's actually a few porn stars that have high IQs. I know Katie Morgan said in a HBO special that she scored extremely high.

Funny, i remembered reading it but can't find it now. They specifically mentioned that their test is without words, to avoid social and cultural bias. Its just numbers, and geometry. And thats how it was when i did it 10 yrs ago.

With that voice, you'd never guess.

Asia Carrera was arrested for drunk driving in Utah a few days ago. You wouldn't know she was a porn star by looking at her mugshot.

Modanna has an IQ of 140. I would have thought it was closer to 90. Jill St. John has an IQ of 167. James Woods, I believe, is above 180. A few years ago I started doing a lot of tests online, and I got some books from the library. It seems you could impove your IQ by familiarizing yourself with the way and kinds of questions that are asked.

I hear she did well on the oral part
of the test.

That's very penetrating.
