International Society For Philosophical Enquiry - Membership

Membership

Admission is generally limited to people in the top 0.1% (99.9th percentile) of cognitive ability as measured by accepted tests of IQ or aptitude in the general population. The ISPE is known informally as "the Thousand," the name first (and briefly) given to the society in 1974, because its admission level is one person in a thousand (3.09 standard deviations above the mean of a normal distribution). This works out to be a score of 149 for IQ tests with a standard deviation of 16, such as the Stanford-Binet, or 146 for tests with a standard deviation of 15, such as the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale.

The Society is governed democratically by vote of full Members and above.

Famous quotes containing the word membership:

    The two real political parties in America are the Winners and the Losers. The people don’t acknowledge this. They claim membership in two imaginary parties, the Republicans and the Democrats, instead.
    Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (b. 1922)
