Question and answer
Q: Did you feel the results were accurate when u toke a IQ test?
A: A variety of IQ tests are available for the visually impaired. Many tests are adaptations of instruments that are in use for the sighted while others are designed specifically for the visually impaired. [ [ There are tests that examine verbal IQ or performance IQ or both. Many of these tests are regarded as accurate predictors of success in the workplace and indicators of academic abilities. ]
There are a number of sociological problems that are thrown up by IQ testing. The main problem being with language - if English is not your first language or you're just no good at it, tests in English will yield a lower score. IQ tests also only test certain thinking processes associated with intelligence, and individuals have different mental strengths and weaknesses. A low score on an IQ test does not specifically mean you are "less intelligent". For instance, a person who is highly intelligent in a non-academic field, for instance interpersonal communications or automotive maintenance, may score poorly on an IQ test because the test is based solely on performance in traditional academic subjects. Scores on an IQ test are comparative by nature; they do not test a subject's 'true intelligence', merely their performance on the given tasks in comparison to those of the same age group. Test scores can also be affected by simple things such as a lack of sleep, or having not eaten enough that morning. IQ tests also fail to assess creativity levels ]
