Mensa Philippines kicked off in 1992 with inaugural test sessions held at the Manila Peninsula Hotel and administered by the Director of Mensa International. This led to the birth of the first batch of members of the organization. Since then, Mensa strives to conduct test sessions regularly every year, in order to make good on its mission of identifying and fostering human intelligence.
Mensa has over 110,000 members around the world, with over 200 active members in the Philippines. Mensa members meet, collaborate, and share knowledge about anything and everything. Famous international Mensan members include Academy Award-winner and Olympic archer Geena Davis, bad boy director Quentin Tarantino, comedian Steve Martin, wordsmith Richard Lederer, the late science fiction master Isaac Asimov, and Dilbert creator Scott Adams.
Some of our local Mensa members include Mica Papa, senior correspondent of GMA Network, Inc. and winner of One World Award for “Gintong Krudo” documentary; Custer Deocaris, one of the recipients of the The Outstanding Young Men award for Science Communications; Lyndon Gregorio, creator of Beerkada comics; and Christopher Tan, one of the top ten entrepreneurs of 2005 and reality TV personality.
There will only be one more Mensa qualifying exam this year after August. This is scheduled in November at Metro Manila.
