  1. Tests still reflect a specific model. And they measure indicators within the framework of this particular model.

    And models are certainly needed, but no model is a reality.

    First of all, I think it is worth remembering, because the tests with their numbers and statistical analysis are very scientific.�

    There are Eysenck tests, Kettel tests, tests (in the sense of test variants) Amthauer, etc., – they all do not measure exactly the same thing. Amthauer simply considers 8 different facets of intelligence, and here is a good example that lower scores in one hypostasis can be accompanied by high scores in another. In short, exactly first you need to recognize very clearly, and what is being evaluated is something specific.

  2. This is an indirect assessment and measurement of something relative to the view of psychology about the field of intelligence (for which, according to psychology, intelligence should be responsible in the human mind). Moreover, all tests have one feature – they are instantaneous, because they assess the state of something in a person at the moment. And even such a slowly changing substance as intelligence. The measurement is made in comparison with the average temperature in the hospital. Try to pass the Eysenck IQ test honestly. And then train yourself on various resources by answering and looking at the answers, let's say 20 times. You'll have to spend about 20 hours of your time, though. And then pass the first test again. The result will undoubtedly increase greatly. But! This will not, unfortunately, indicate your increased intelligence. Therefore, this is an indirect, relative, and approximate estimate.
