TM is not a religion or belief.  TM is the natural
opposite of the Fight or Flight Response.

High IQ Society


TM Helps Idiot
Get Smart

"I was a C student before TM,
then started getting A's and
high SATs. TM raised my IQ
to qualify me for Colgate
University and Mensa."

"TM also improved my mind
body coordination, to be the
Monroe County & Section 5
Tumbling Champion"

"TM improved my motivation
to achieve more merit badges
and become an Eagle Scout."

"TM helped me see the value
of Bitcoin, which transcends
national currencies, in 2011. "

"TM helped me transcend
shyness and ask a beautiful
lady to be my wife"

Discussing and Promoting Scientific Research and Investigation on
the effect of TM on IQ, EEG Coherence, GPA, and Learning Ability

This SIG is one of the many nonprofit groups formed by members of Mensa on various topics. 
Members can communicate through a web based bulletin board (coming) and this TMSIG.org site.

This SIG studies ways in which more people may unfold their full mental potential, and perhaps qualify for Mensa membership.


TM Increases Intelligence Quotient

Students at Maharishi University in Fairfield, Iowa, who regularly practiced Transcendental Meditation, increased significantly in intelligence over a 2-year period, compared to control subjects from another Iowa university. This finding corroborates the results of two other studies showing increased IQ in students practicing TM.

Reference I: Transcendental Meditation and improved performance on intelligence-related measures: A longitudinal study, Cranson, Orme-Johnson, Gackenback, Dillbeck, Jones, and Alexander.  Personality and Individual Differences 12: 1105-1116, 1991.

Reference II: Longitudinal effects of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program on cognitive ability and cognitive style, Perceptual and Motor Skills 62: 731738, 1986.


Improved Perception and Memory

College students instructed in Transcendental Meditation displayed significant improvements in performance over a 2-week period on a perceptual and short-term memory test involving the identification of familiar letter sequences presented rapidly. They were compared with subjects randomly assigned to a routine of twice- daily rest with eyes closed, and with subjects who made no change in their daily routine.

Meditation and flexibility of visual perception and verbal problem solving, Memory and Cognition 10: 207215, 1982.


This study found that during the Transcendental Meditation program some of the early sensory components of the brain's response to somatosensory stimulation (0100 msec) are more widely distributed across the cortex. This study, by Dr. Nicolai Nicolaevich Lyubimov, Director of the Moscow Brain Research Institute's Laboratory of Neurocybernetics, indicates that during the Transcendental Meditation program there is an increase in the areas of the cortex taking part in perception of specific information and an increase in the functional relationship between the two hemispheres.

After one year of practice of the Transcendental Meditation program, elementary school students showed significant gains on the lowa Tests of Basic Skills, a nationally standardized test (ref. 1). A second study showed significant gains in high school students (grades 912) on the lowa Tests of Educational Development (ref. 2). A third study (ref. 3) found that the length of time students had been practicing the Transcendental Meditation program was significantly correlated with academic achievement, independent of student IQ scores.
