Mensa HungarIQa Association, the group of the most intelligent 2% of Hungarians, celebrates its 30th birthday this Monday. To mark the anniversary, the organization will promote intelligence and the importance of problem-solving thinking with a series of national events, IQ days and a range of test-taking opportunities.
Over the past 30 years, Mensa HungarIQa has raised awareness of the importance of intelligence through a number of initiatives and programs, the association points out in its communiqué.
In 2003 and 2005, an all-night television intelligence test was organized under the title 'IQ – The Test of the Country', in cooperation with RTL Klub. The Mensa football team won its first World Cup title in 2005 and has since added more title wins. In the 2010s, tens of thousands of matriculation exam participants and university students had the chance to test their intelligence through the Big Student IQ test, organized in partnership with the Student Credit Center. In 2015, Hungarian Bibiána Balanyi became the chairman of Mensa International, based in England, for four years.
Mensa is an international association with nearly 145,000 members. Its aim is to bring together people of high intelligence: its only membership criterion is that the person’s level of intelligence reaches that of the most intelligent 2% of the people.
Its Hungarian organization is Mensa HungarIQa, founded on March 20, 1993. The association is celebrating its anniversary with a series of national public events: the first IQ Days will be held in Székesfehérvár on April 1.
