IQ which is Intelligence Quotient is something that defines the cognitive ability of an individual. We’ve also covered the topics such as The importance of IQ and Truth about IQ Test. An IQ test has a number of measures related to different abilities. The test intends to look into not how much an individual learns or how much information is already stored; it broadly assesses the intelligence ability of an individual.

Online IQ Test :

  • The test contains of a number of questions and the participant is then asked to answer the questions after which the scores are compared with the population.
  • The scores are compared because the IQ tests are usually standardized.
  • The IQ score is obtained by Mental Age divided by Chronological Age multiplied by 100.
  • Usually 100 is used as the median score for all the IQ Tests.

The test also helps to measure the fluid intelligence which focuses on solving abstract problems. IQ does not analyze the future success of anyone that matter. It only helps an individual to know what abilities are they good at to be able to either train themselves in the specified area that they want to enhance (subjective) or focus on the ability that they already have for a good career the individual intends to do in future. Ultimately helping the person use his/her intelligence ability in the specified area of interest.

Simply put,the IQ test put very simply is a measure of human intelligence. There are certain questions that need to be answered in a stipulated time to obtain the score that is then compared to the norms established for that age. The IQ of the person is very important to understand their general competence.
