As for the ex-JW aspect, I never mentioned my flirtation with Mensa to anyone other than family, but I've been told several times that I'm "too smart for [my] own good." Whatever that means. I think it was just a way to avoid answering my questions that challenged the way they were told to think.
Yeah, when being intelligent is viewed as a negative, someone really needs to start reevaluating things. After I quit the cult my father-in-law came over to talk about my reasons. I was fairly open about many of the flaws that lead to my awakening. He called me "computer brained" and told me that he's known several JWs that he put in the category of being "computer brained" and all but one had left. Apparently my problem is I just need to learn how to turn it off.
