I am a very intelligent 13 yr. older, but I can’t find any organizations that will take in teens. My IQ is 169
SETI probably didn’t want you because you’re not an alien. The SETI Institute is devoted to the search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence, not smart kids.
Mensa allows children and teens as members, provided they have a high enough score on any of the IQ tests that Mensa accepts. See the link below for more information.
But if you’re looking for a free high-IQ society, you’re probably out of luck. Most organizations, of any kind, have to charge a membership fee. How else could they afford to BE organizations, with meetings and newsletters and websites and everything that goes with it? If your parents won’t pay for your membership, you’ll have to wait until you can pay for it yourself.
You also should not expect for “everyone to acknowledge” you just for joining a high-IQ society. The people in the society will all have high IQs too, and no one else is going to care. You’ll have to impress people with your own abilities, not your club memberships.
By the way, how did you obtain your score? If your testing didn’t use either the Stanford-Binet or the Wechsler scale, then its a bunch of BS. Then again, most IQ tests are designed to be accurate only within a certain range, say 65-135 IQ. Exceptionally intelligent people cannot really be accurately assessed because there aren’t enough items on the tests that challenge them.
here is an index of organizations for gifted children, organized by state:
yes, i agree with engineer girl, i doubt you have an IQ of 169.. you took a dumb online quiz.
Second Question: I thought SETI was the organization that has as its purpose the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence?
Finally, have you thought about MENSA?
Maybe the test is not accurate. I’ve once took an IQ test, and I got 192! Do you believe it?
Any chance you’re near Atlanta? We’d be glad to have you come to our meetings.
