Mensa, perhaps the most well-known high-IQ society worldwide, selects for the top 2% in general intelligence (approximately two standard deviations above the norm). One person in fifty would theoretically qualify for Mensa. The Prometheus Society, however, discriminates at the 99.997th percentile, which equates to "1 in 30,000" (four standard deviations above the norm).
Our members have the kind of extreme intelligence that often makes it difficult to find understanding and intellectual camaraderie in the general population. Prometheus attempts to provide some of that.
Membership in the Society is open to anyone who has received a score on an accepted IQ test that is equal to or greater than that received by the highest one thirty thousandth of the general population. The Prometheus Society is a world nonprofit organization. We currently have approximately 120 members worldwide. Our members represent over two dozen countries around the world and come from all walks of life.
