IQ Testing

What is IQ?

We have all heard the term IQ (an acronym for intelligence quotient) in one context or another - it's well known that Einstein had a high IQ level, and he is one of the most intelligent people in the world. Hence, it seems reasonable to assume that IQ level is related to one's intelligence.

What is intelligence?

The word 'intelligence' originates from the Latin word 'Intelligere' and means to choose or decide. Human intelligence has occupied us throughout history. We like to have it, love to analyze it and single it out, try to measure and quantify it, compare it, and above all, try to understand what it really is.

When was the first IQ test created?

Many psychologists made the first attempts to describe and measure IQ in the 19th century. In 1905, Alfred Bina and Théodore Simon, two French psychologists, first presented an IQ test for children, which was designed to divide them into classes in order to fit them with a curriculum based on the assumption that intelligence should be measured through tasks that require logic and problem solving and not by perceptual skills. Bina established the term "mental age" - the "intellectual" age (measured by the test and the ability to answer and complete tasks) was compared to the child's chronological age to assess the level of his intellectual development.

The more modern IQ tests, used by diagnosticians today, were developed in 1939 by David Wechsler, who believed that the Bina-Simon test was unsuitable for adults. The Wechsler IQ test for adults, WAIS (Wechsler Adult Intelligent Scales), includes a verbal part and a performance part, for which you receive two separate scores in addition to the general intelligence score. The verbal part includes general knowledge, abstraction skills, word interpretation, verbal comprehension, and mathematical skills. The performance part consists of completing and arranging pictures, cubes, assembling objects, and more. The average test score for all ages is 100, and about 95 percent of the population has an IQ in the "normal" range (up to two standard deviations in each direction, between 70 and 130).

Although the test results have been proven reliable and stable over time, they describe general abilities, do not change over time and training, and mainly describe potential over available and present abilities. Beyond the fact that these tests were directed and designed for use by children and the adaptation of their curriculum, the tests determine 'intelligence level', give a general assessment of the person's general abilities, and do not provide him with information about his dominant domains and in which areas he can excel. For these reasons, intelligence tests are not suitable for measuring specific skills in the context of employment.

Specific skills and employment tests are designed to evaluate a person's abilities more accurately for each position and match him with the most suitable profession. Thus, he can utilize his available and existing abilities to reach and realize his occupational potential.
