Question and answer
How do you feel about IQ scores being used to compare you with another person?
IQ only measures one aspect of intelligence and may not be valid across every person. Some people may be more skilled in certain areas, and some people may not have had the background to excel in IQ tests. [ So, having IQ tests to compare different people is not very meaningful. ]
