A new dating site exclusively for intelligent people has just launched. IntelligentPeople.com is an online dating and networking community which requires that its members pass an IQ test in order to join.
IntelligentPeople.com is intended for people with an IQ in the top 15% of the population. In comparison, you need an IQ in the top 2% of the population to become a member of Mensa. People with an IQ in the top 15%, are said to be “highly intelligent”. Most often, highly intelligent people communicate and interact best with other intelligent people. IntelligentPeople.com was created on the basis of that fact, with the purpose of giving intelligent people an opportunity to meet and form relationships, regardless of location, education and social status.
To become a member of IntelligentPeople.com, applicants need to pass the IQ test required for admission. The IQ test consists only of black and white images and is designed to be culture fair, meaning it will test intelligence while minimizing cultural or educational biases.
(Editor’s note: I wonder if this dating site for intelligent people is an intelligent idea at all)
