Has anyone ever taken the Mensa IQ test before?

I have taken the one in the American Way magazine before, but it did not say anything about determining your own IQ. I have also taken a non-mensa IQ test before and I scored a 158 (which is good, itsn't it?)

Aaron G, yah, 158 is generaly pretty good since the average is always maintained at 100. 120 is considered genius, so if you've got 158 that's good.

And yes, 787, I took the Mensa test (and passed with flying colors).

Just for the record, Mensa doesn't have an IQ test.

Although I'm not a member of MENSA, I've read several of their "official" books. Here's a paraphrase of what the note information said in one of the books:
MENSA is a high-IQ society... MENSA has members who have Ph.D.s as well as members who never graduated from high school... MENSA does not base its membership on any kind of standardized test (including the I.Q.) rather on tests it administers independently.
I gotta be honest -- I measure 160 on the I.Q. scale but I couldn't complete enough of the official books to "pass" -- perhaps I'll do better when I take an officially administered version...  
Up, up and away!

Mensa is something of an elitest group, as far as I can tell. They seem to enjoy revelling in their superiority in terms of intelligence. I will be an active member in the near future, though for now I am simply submitting poetry, etc.
