IQ: Intelligence Quotient

IQ: Intelligence Quotient

  • The IQ (Intelligence Quotient) is a test to measure a person’s cognitive ability, using a standardized scale of Median=100.
  • The test has questions that score us on our ability to solve problems, perceive relationships between concepts and our ability to process information.
  • Scores above 130 indicate high levels of intelligence, while scores below 70 generally mean the person is not very intelligent, at least cognitively.

Kinds Of IQ Tests

Intelligence may be of different kinds, like:

  1. Spatial: The ability to visualize change in shapes.
  2. Mathematical: The ability to solve problems that require logical processing.
  3. Language: Ability to recognize words and letters, or being able to complete sentences.
  4. Memory: Being able to recall information.

Most people do not perform well in all kinds of questions, and the best tests feature an assortment of the various categories of intellectual ability, not biased towards any particular kind of intelligence.

  • Our intellectual ability can depend on genetic and environmental factors, our diet as a child, and the degree of intellectual stimulation(like solving puzzles) received in our formative years.

Our IQ(Intelligence Quotient) does not measure our creative skills, social skills, acquired abilities, or even wisdom. It is just an imperfect method for measuring a small part of our intellectual ability: Cognitive skills and information processing.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
