The most exclusive High IQ Society located in Italy
[ Non adatta a persone con un ||QI|| - vale a dire un "QI nella norma" ]
sPIqr is an internet-based IQ group founded on 18th February 2010 with the purpose of bringing together people who pass a certain percentile in two or more IQ tests that they have selected for admission.
The minimum accepted IQ score corresponds to 153, s.d. 15, in at least one test for each of the two considered areas (spatial and logical-numerical). Only first attempts are valid. Only one person in 5,000 of the general population is a potential member.
Theoretically, there are more than 1,000,000 members on Earth.
By comparison with Mensa, the largest society of this kind in the world, the admission qualification is over 100 times more selective.
The acronym sPIqr derives from the Italian pronunciation of what is without doubt the most famous crest of the ancient Roman Republic: S.P.Q.R., that is, "Senatus Populusque Romanus". Furthermore, pi=3.1415... is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter.
In the mind of humankind, the circle has always represented the ideal of perfection; Dante Alighieri wrote in his masterpiece that God had revealed himself to the writer via three circles of different colors. Obviously sPIqr also contains the letters "IQ", which indicates the core element of this kind of virtual cafe.
The purpose of the sPIqr is make the whole world aware of how important the inclusion of gifted children is within the school system.
Very often these brilliant children have to face up to a hostile environment that does not allow them to fully express their abilities.
-Honorary members do not exist. The only way to be a part of the society is via full or prospective membership.
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
