Founded in the UK in 1946, Mensa has only 134 thousand members spread 100 countries. This is because its members are only the so-called 2% the world's population, with IQ above 127. Among the members of this exclusive club, the level of education is not what determines intelligence. They can be either people with multiple doctorates or have never finished high school. The list of professions is diverse. In Brazil, according to the website of Mensa, are about 1,4 thousand members.

Fabiano de Abreu tells how he discovered belong to this intelligence group above average:

"When I had 17 years, I made my first IQ test, and the result was 175 points. So, I was recently in Rio de Janeiro, and then I decided to do a test, this month, this time with 37 years, with psychologist Roselene Holy Spirit Wagner, that did not show me numbers (QI), but a result naming me as “above average intelligence ". Then I went to Sao Paulo to Cristiane Costa neuropsychologist Cruz, who is a member of Mensa and expert on intelligence test. Making a broad test of various types of intelligence, as verbal skills and reasoning. After these two tests, I also did the test for Mensa, Association of higher IQ's of the world. After, then I received the approval confirming the high IQ and I became part of the international Mensa ".

There are several methods to measure the intelligence quotient. Yet, the most accurate method, which is adopted by Mensa and Mensa International Brazil, It is based on percentile: “In consultation with the neuropsychologist expert IQ test and association members, the correct IQ percentile measure is. These numbers are said in the press and on websites are not accepted. To get into Mensa must have at least 98% percentile, that serious or equivalent 2% the world's population. In my case, 99% equals 1% of the population. If we base ourselves in numbers we will have results for. some tests, maximum score 150, 99% It would be something between 130 and 150. Already in a maximum score test 200, 99% REPORTING 180 to 200. In the last test I did this month, if it were me based on it, I could say I have 180, 190 or 200, but this is not correct, it is not so over rated. Tests of Mensa has the approval of its headquarters in England, and the association is a pioneer and the most important in the world”.

Fabiano says that is happy to be able to positively represent Brazil abroad: "For me it never mattered the degree of IQ, I never really worried about it. What I find cool about this is able to take the name of Brazil abroad, in a positive way. They need to know that there is here also super brains, not only there.”

Fabiano reports that was rebellious as a child and came to be expelled from school for being tearaway.

"Even the high school was not the so-called model student. I had discipline problems. But I came to maturity and become a journalist, writer and respected professional in Brazil and abroad. I am a philosopher who did not graduate in philosophy. To be approved in Mensa, Plead condition of a scholarship at Harvard and other equally prestigious universities around the world. How to live in Portugal, I intend to go to college in Oporto or Coimbra. "
