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

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 product.

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 for long!)

Therefore, I would think a claim of "former Mensa membership" might be
a better indication than a present membership would! 8:)
