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. Former or inactive members of TOPS are eligible to enter the group immediately upon proof of membership.
