1. Most do not socialize with other members; therefore it is not a social club.

2. Members are beyond "somewhat" intelligent by definition.

3. Within their own social context, they are exactly fitted.

4. Yeah.

5. Debatable.

6. Yeah.

[Sorry, could not resist giving a typical didactic Mensa reply. And, yes I are 1, but I usually don't advertise that fact, nor do I espy consanguinity with the prosaism ]
