IQ testing

PCareer education specialists pay a lot of attention to the IQ. Getting to know yourself is an important objective for career builders wishing to really take control of their own careers and lives. The IQ and other intelligence tests will do much more than just let you know “how” intelligent you are. You will learn what your stronger and weaker points are, and this will help you and your career advice helpers to decide on your career as you will be able to choose the kind of tasks and responsibilities that better match your mind and personality.

The IQ or Intelligence Quotient is a score derived from a set of standardized tests that were developed with the purpose of measuring a person's cognitive abilities ("intelligence") in relation to their age group. It is expressed as a number normalized so that the average IQ in an age group is 100 —in other words an individual scoring 115 is above-average when compared to similarly aged people.

Intelligence Quotient scores are generally taken as an objective measure of intelligence. Modern IQ tests produce scores for different areas (e.g., language fluency, three-dimensional thinking, etc.), with the summary score calculated from subtest scores. Individual subtest scores tend to correlate with one another, even when seemingly disparate in content. Analyses of an individual's scores on a wide variety of tests will reveal that they all measure a single common factor and various factors that are specific to each test. This kind of analysis has led to the theory that underlying these disparate cognitive tasks is a single factor, termed the g factor, that represents the common-sense concept of intelligence. In the normal population, g and IQ are roughly 90 % correlated and are often used interchangeably.

You can buy one of the many books of Intelligence Quotient and similar tests and conduct it at your home, or you can find many online and other resources on IQ testing.
