My name is Susan Richards and I have lived on the Isle of Man since 2002, having spent most of my life in various parts of the UK.
I have been a member since 1995.
I took the test because I wanted to see if I could reach the required standard and I got fed up with hearing ‘blonde’ jokes.
I like Mensa because it is interesting to meet other members, I enjoy reading the magazine, and there is the opportunity to share interests with other members through the Special Interest Groups which I hope to have more time for when I retire.
And finally I would like to see more people taking and passing the ‘test’ and discovering their IQ potential because it can make a difference to a person’s view of themselves and the amount of confidence they have!
