Thank you for your interest!
You can follow our Lab at Researchgate https://www.researchgate.net/lab/Mensa-in-Deutschland-eV-Tanja-Gabriele-Baudson
One of Mensas stated purposes is “To encourage research
in the nature, characteristics, and uses of intelligence;” We’re more a loose bond of researchers (mostly psychologists) and researchers in training who cooperate in different projects. Some of which I coordinate. That’s why I’m the group leader besides our lab head.
But it’s not exactly the same as a research group at an university because, with exeption of our lab head (@tanja.baudson), no one is paid for their research. In America with a bigger membership base there’s more research, as far as i know. But our declared goal is to expand the research conducted in germany as well and enter cooperations with different (research and charitable) institutions/organizations.
In the last months we established a lecture series https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJB4A0VN6h2LG7H8ezplMiPlyF7RuqClv .
Also, under my guidance, we set up a survey server on which we can conduct studys in compliance with data protection laws and are about to launch an online panel for our members, so they can be notified about upcoming studys.
The next big projects I am working on are a study about prosopagnostic individuals and a study about relationship attitudes and (deviating) sexual behaviors in high-iq individuals. In the future I’m interested to research connections of different cognitive domains with intelligence, especially complex attention.
Also I’m supporting a longitudinal study about our members and some other bigger projects which are mostly managed by our Labhead Tanja.
PS: Attached you find our leaflet for english speaking researchers. Constructive criticism is very welcome since I designed the flyer myself and only have limited expertise in the field of design . The conference where it was to be distributed was cancelled due to corona Wifo Flyer 2 (4).pdf (3.5 MB)
