The Top One Percent Society (TOPS) was founded in July 1989 by Ronald K. Hoeflin, Ph.D.
TOPS is a high IQ society, at the 99th percentile of intelligence, dedicated to the intellectual stimulation and growth of its members. To this effect a journal (Termite) to which any member can submit letters, essays, poems or art, has been set in place.
Membership requires minimum qualifying scores in a variety of tests. Hernan R. Chang, M.D. is the Membership Officer of the society. Former or inactive members of TOPS are eligible to enter the group immediately upon proof of membership.
