  1. The reliability of the IQ test developed by Eysenck (1916-1997) in the middle of the last century is quite high. Another thing is that here you need to understand that there are other, no less well-known theories about human mental abilities. In particular, the theory of the famous scientist-psychologist Professor Howard Gardner of Harvard University (born in 1943) about “multiple intelligence”.

    According to this theory, all people have different types of intelligence.

    To cover the full range of abilities and talents that people possess, he identified nine types of intelligence: naturalistic, musical, logical-mathematical, linguistic-verbal, existential, interpersonal, intrapersonal, body-kinesthetic and visual-spatial. So his theory, to a certain extent, contradicts Eysenck's theory, but does not exclude it.

    What to believe is, of course, a matter for everyone personally, but my opinion is this: the Eysenck test really determines the brain's abilities, but only in terms of logic and analysis, since Gardner's theory looks just as strong and quite reasonable and logical. Therefore, it is possible, with a considerable degree of probability, to assert that the IQ test is by no means an indicator of the entire spectrum of human intelligence. And if, for example, you have a low score on this test, it just means that you have poorly developed logical thinking. And, most likely, you just have better developed other brain abilities.

    Here it should also be noted that in the world scientific community, studies of functional asymmetry of the human brain hemispheres have been conducted for a very long time and not only in psychology, but also in medicine, of course. And there are a huge number of scientific papers and different opinions, but the consensus, to this day, has not been reached.

  2. many people on this planet have tried different tests.

    for all occasions.

    the purpose of tests is to identify inclinations, not to determine something exactly.

    sitting with your ass on a chair, you can not understand how a person will think and act under pressure .

    some companies also take an IQ test when applying for a job/

    then some of them fall apart.

    for me, in my 50s, these tests are no more than a ruler for a kid measuring the length of his phallus. ()

    the very formulation of the question is generally unproductive. meaningless in the context-free space under discussion.

    just a pointless conversation. it's a waste of time not doing anything.

    of course, this is not a subject forum . on oncology ..by weapon. in veterinary medicine. on psychology. believe me-there people blame for life, not for tests . and they take it seriously.

    this is just an elementary school. congratulations you are studying in it.

    when the time comes , you, dear “Yandex radio listeners” will be able to face real problems, in which , I hope, your iq will help you find a way out.

    otherwise, why pass this test? (at his wife's work, they pass it once every six months for the sake of humor…and men are offended when they are bypassed by girls..only the main work is done by these men….).

    It reminds me of my time at uni-I knew everything , but I couldn't do anything.

    good luck to all. and don't get too sick. (“you come in if th”)

  3. The answer will be off-topic. I pass tests only in moments of boredom.

    Just 3 days ago, I was looking for interesting questions on IQ, but I was disappointed. Ravina was the first to pass the test. It seemed boring and more likely to attract attention. It took place at night, resulting in 2 incorrect answers. I started looking for something more complex, and came across Eysenck's IQ test. It is much more interesting, some tasks are baffling, but I strongly doubt the reliability (coefficient 129, cost.time 25m. 45s., 18 correct answers). I've never considered myself smart and I don't think so, so Eisenka is also in the red). Probably not the best idea to try to translate intelligence into numbers, there is only one test that works here-life. From psychology, the only test that really impresses is the Lusher test, it's not for IQ, but I can't help but mention it. Surely many have passed. If you haven't heard about it before, �be sure to go through the full version only.

  4. No. IQ refers to the quantitative expression of intelligence.And since there are several approaches to understanding intelligence: intelligence as the ability to think abstractly, intelligence as the ability to adapt, as the ability to learn, etc., then, accordingly, tests are created and created within these approaches. And since all these approaches can be challenged, there is no objective SINGLE test. After all, among the inert people or those who have problems with adaptation, there are smart and very smart ones.

    There are other methods besides the Raven Test, such as the Wexler or Amthauer Test, etc….The Wexler test is currently used mainly in medical institutions.

    The Amthauer test is quite extensive.

  5. Strictly speaking, a reliable IQ test is an IQ test that measures intelligence and is not adapted to the Russian culture and language. �There are many tests for intelligence, I would single out the Raven test, it measures the G – factor(General-main, key) интеллек of intelligence, to be more precise, it shows how successfully you find связи connections between objects. Its advantages are that it is cross-cultural and easily accessible.

  6. Important introduction. IQ is an outdated concept that is practically not used in science and practice anymore. In addition, after the penetration of mass culture, it became harmful: the mind began to be identified with IQ, and people with low results on IQ tests were considered (in their eyes, first of all) stupid. It is more fair to talk not about IQ, but about intellectual abilities that are not limited to the mind – the speed of memorization and recall, the speed of perception and processing of information, etc. What is” mind ” – science, strictly speaking, still does not know. We can definitely say that this is a concept constructed by people 🙂

    Now about the tests of intellectual abilities. Two leading companies that develop tests for organizations share their research methods for free.

    1. ECOPSI Consulting Intelligence Test: https://linkis.ecopsy.ru/g/7d826daf-7f36-413c-861a-dd31461432d5/

    To receive the report, write to the email address specified at the beginning of the test.

    1. Club of testers of test technologies: http://testbytest.ru/index.html Upon full registration, the KTO-2015 test of the Humanitarian Technologies company becomes available (at the bottom of the list).

    IMPORTANT: These tests are for self-discovery only. You can't use them when testing candidates and employees.

  7. I will even say more: the IQ itself can only show how you can solve IQ tests. And no more than that. A person thinks on two levels — logical and emotional-and the IQ test not only checks one layer of thinking, but also does it terribly badly.

    And I will also add that the IQ test is constantly becoming more complicated, because its principle is based on the fact that more people fluctuate around 100 points. This is covered in Pinker's Best of Us. It won't leave any doubts, I guarantee

  8. First, it is necessary to determine what is IQ. Intelligence Quotient or intelligence quotient is a certain number, the result of the corresponding test, which must be completed in a specific period of time. As a rule, people with a high IQ are considered geniuses, and those with a low IQ are left on the bench, but is this fair?

    The IQ test was created in the early 1900s at the request of the French Ministry of Public Education to determine the abilities of schoolchildren. Two psychologists, Alfred Binet and Theodore Simon, developed a series of 30 tasks. The workload increased from task to task. The result of this test compared mental indicators, i.e. the results of passing the test, with physical indicators and the age of the student. Thus, the Simon-Binet test determined how much the child's development corresponds to his age, i.e. literally the speed of mental and physical development.

    Later, other psychologists became interested in this test. In particular, Lewis Thurman modified it while working at Stanford University. Since then-since 1916 – we have been using the Stanford-Binet test to determine the mental abilities of an adult. Do you see what metamorphoses have taken place?

    Next question – how does this test measure intelligence? It provides various tasks for logic and basic cognitive functions of the brain-attention, memory and thinking. A special feature of testing is that when solving problems, you are offered a choice of several possible answers. And there is also a limited time to complete the game. In total, we get that several factors can distort the picture at once: a random choice of the correct answer, the emotional state of the test subject (stress due to the time frame), the person could simply not get enough sleep, feel bad, etc. It turns out that any such test cannot be objective. And not only for these reasons. Intelligence is a combination of many aspects of personal development: accumulated knowledge, their correct application, experience, broad horizons, and cultural development. These factors cannot be measured in any specific terms, but it is absolutely proven that in general, intelligence can weaken if it is not fed.
