This week’s Sunday Times backpage model is MENSA member, Lindsey Becker.

Lindsey Becker mensa model

Here’s some story from GQ magazine:

I’m sitting in the conference room of Ice Models when in walks a petite girl with striking features and piercing blue eyes. However, this girl, Lindsey Becker, is more than just a prettty face: she’s a member of an elite society only accesible to those with an IQ over 130.

As a member of Mensa, the girl is most definitely bright.

She’s pretty nervous though, evidently worried about how the interview is going to turn out, and often asks just that.

‘People can be so ignorant when they box people into stereotypes,’ she says. ‘It shows insecurity.’

I reassure her that I will present her as more than the stereotype.

You see, Lindsey Becker is tired of being ‘pinned down’ and declares herself a ‘rebel against sterotypes.’

And yes, this model defies the norm, working as a copywriter and as a Mensa member she has not been cast from any generic mould. And while I had mentally prepared myself for conversations on topics like the global economic climate, the debt-ceiling in America, world history and the politcal future of South Africa, no such conversation takes place.

Though undeniably nervous, she’s sweet and charming, and even tries directing the interview at me (smart move since she admitted to disliking talking about herself).

I want to know how dangerous a combination it is being both attractive and intelligent?

‘People expect so little, so it’s easier to impress them.’

Mensa hasn’t turned out to be all that Lindsey expected. She hoped the society (or ‘mensans’ as she calls them) would entail formulating ideas to save the world, but instead found it to be social gatherings where people get drunk.
