Basketball IQ and intelligence - A critical study for dumbs.

"A high IQ is like height in a basketball player," says David Perkins, who studies thinking and reasoning skills at Harvard Graduate School of Education in Cambridge, Massachusetts. "It is very important, all other things being equal. But all other things aren't equal. There's a lot more to being a good basketball player than being tall, and there's a lot more to being a good thinker than having a high IQ."

Intelligent people have a reputation for making dumb mistakes, especially in situations that require common sense. The simplicity of these situations and the abundant intelligence of those who tend to muck them up can be downright comical.

Fluid vs. Crystallized intelligence

In the intelligence field, there is a distinction between:

  •  "fluid" intelligence (indexed by tests of abstract reasoning and pattern detection);
  •  "crystallized" intelligence (indexed by measures of vocabulary and general knowledge).
  • The IQ(intelligence quotient) is a measurement of the mind's various cognitive functions like short-term memory, logic, reasoning, spatial recognition and analytical thinking.
  • The concept of IQ was first created in 1916 by an American psychologist conducting intelligence tests on soldiers.
  • The IQ score, derived from standard IQ tests, can be in the range of 69 to 130, with above 100 scores indicating high levels of intelligence.
  • The average IQ score is 100, and if your score is 130 or above, you are having superior intelligence!
