[quote:Anonymous Coward 13835707:MV8xODI4Mjc4XzMwNDU1ODEwXzRCMkJFN0VD] OP, Standardized tests are only good at measuring things within a couple of standard deviations. IQ is a good metric for the middle 98% but not good at distinguishing among the top or bottom 1%. I'm several standard deviations above the norm on standardized testing, but most people who share that property with me seem like complete retards. [/quote]
This subject came up the other day in another thread. I.Q. was discussed as a satisfactory and mainstream tool to measure Intelligence. However, dissent popped up right away and those who support I.Q. as a significant test were mocked.
The gauntlet was thrown down: Okay, name some other tests that are better and in use?
"I will gladly answer that in another thread"
Okay, let's have it...
If you mock I.Q. (and those who have it and are not afraid to say so) what test do you prefer? Is your test used by Mainstream analysts?
This issue needs to be resolved, once-and-for-all, so when it gets down to this sub-argument, people can link back here to back up whatever they're saying.
