The IQ test relevance

Since it was created, in the early 20th century, the IQ test led to many arguments about its accuracy and relevance. The IQ test evaluates the mathematics, logic, spatial and grammar skills of an individual, skills also known as academic intelligence.

Recent theories say that there are many more types of intelligence that academic, such as emotional intelligence, physical intelligence found at athletes, and musical intelligence that great musicians have and artistic intelligence that characterizes famous artists.

The general intelligence levels according to the IQ standards are:

Under 70 – Definite feeble-mindedness

70 – 79 – Borderline deficiency

80 – 89 – Dullness

90 – 109 – Normal, average intelligence

110 – 119 – Superior intelligence

120 – 140 – Very superior intelligence

Over 140 – Near genius or genius

Scoring a high IQ does not necessarily mean that you will be more successful in life. There are much more factors that can influence some one’s success in life not just his mathematics and logic skills. The individuals with higher IQ scores are more likely to succeed in life than the ones with a lower IQ score. Yet in many circumstances, a more determined individual with an IQ of let’s say 95 can become more successful than an individual with an IQ of 120 but with no ambition.

Another aspect of the IQ tests that very disputed regards the scores that can be manipulated. The same person can score less if did not sleep well before the day of the test, and can have a higher score than the true level if he drinks coffee in the morning.

IQ test can be used as a source of information and guidance in choosing the further points of interest or even choosing a future career. A lot of work, determination and special attention towards the lower skill areas can increase your chances to succeed in life. Do not get disappointed in your IQ score if it’s not over 110, you still can have the life you always dreamed about.
