  • Why that social media IQ test is inaccurate
    that most people earn The average intelligence falls around 100 People who are smarter or less smart than average score outside of the normal range Outlier scores are comparable to a percentage For instance a person who scored 124 is estimated to be as intelligent as 6 percent of people The quiz alludes to the comparison structure of IQ scores The quiz tells users how their score compares to the rest of the population However it still awards a few too many surprising results Testing time Standard IQ tests including the Stanford Binet Intelligence Scales and the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale WAIS IV take a decent amount of time to complete anywhere from an hour to 90 minutes Children s IQ tests may not take quite as long about 40 60 minutes Each contain a long list of questions that test a person s cognitive abilities based on things like memory Completing only a few questions won t provide strong enough evidence for how intelligent the test taker is While taking a short quiz to fill up a few minutes can be fun you shouldn t use the assessments as the end all be all You ll only get an accurate reading of your IQ score by taking exams that are certified by a qualified psychologist Improving your IQ The quiz was spread on Facebook as an advertising tool The company says it can help people improve their IQ While the quiz provides an inaccurate IQ score the idea that people can improve their intelligence is actually correct IQ is fluid and can be exercised Children are able to improve their IQ the most as their minds are still developing and learning Adults can too just not to such a great degree RELATED ARTICLES Genetic IQ tests to begin in

  • Improving critical thinking skills
    People often use the phrase killing time to describe a period when there is no productivity occurring at that moment These are great opportunities to practice critical thinking skills You can spend this time doing self evaluations Ask yourself questions like At what point during the day did I really think through a decision When did I make poor choices What types of thoughts crossed my mind today Did I do anything to get closer to my long term goals Evaluate recurring biases When people face a problem that is difficult to solve they often look at it from only one perspective They do not see the value in looking at the situation from two or even three different angles The next time you are faced with a challenge try to think how another person might see the problem This could be a parent role model colleague or student You could also use a famous person from history known for their intelligence When you practice looking at a situation from different points of view you don t let biases cloud your judgment Take some time to think about each particular challenge What assumptions are you making in the context of this problem Removing biases from your thought process can really help you make rational decisions Solve a problem a day Try to systematically work through a problem or challenge each day Use logic to identify the different factors that play into the situation Define the problem in a way that you can understand Determine how the challenge relates to your goals values and needs RELATED ARTICLES Why that social media IQ test is inaccurate Genetic IQ tests to begin in China London mayor s comments on IQ scores spur controversy More NEWS CATEGORIES IQ Test Information Kids IQ Test Information
