For me, a Mensa membership claim would provoke a little additional
scrutiny of an applicant, for over the years I have found that a
fairly significant percentage of active members have some difficulties
in interacting with others.
It seems that mental and emotional maturity do not always develop at
the same speed. On the job, I am very focused on teamwork and
cooperation because over the years I have found that effective
interaction with colleagues is a vital ingredient in a good work
There are, of course, exceptions to this experience--but again in my
experience, those who are the exceptions rarely are regular in
attendance at Mensa functions. (In case you wonder, over the years I
tried three different chapters in three different areas, but found too
few people who were sufficiently grounded in common sense to be active
Therefore, I would think a claim of "former Mensa membership" might be
a better indication than a present membership would! 8:)
