  •  I wrote Standard IQ test (0+ / 0-)

    Nice section about this subject in Wiki. Plus I have a masters in psychology and gave people IQ tests and wrote up evaluations so I have a little bit of knowledge about it.

    Lots of evidence that there are cultural biases and more. Google works well if you want to find them.

      I wrote Standard IQ test
      And what exactly did he write?
      Standard IQ test

      Pretty much is invalid for many people.

      Except, of course, there is no "Standard IQ Test".
      Plus I have a masters in psychology and gave people IQ tests and wrote up evaluations so I have a little bit of knowledge about it.
      If you actually had a masters in psychology or had "a little bit of knowledge about [IQ Tests]" then you would know that there is no "standard IQ test".

      FAIL....

      •  done responding to someone (0+ / 0-)

        who is just trying to bait me.

        Seriously you have no clue.

        Stanford-Binet and the WAIS have been the standard IQ tests in the US for decades.

        I do have a masters in psychology.

        Try using Google instead of antagonizing strangers on the internet. It's a much more positive thing to do.

        •  So, you're admitting straight off that there is (0+ / 0-)

          no one standard IQ test - you are claiming two.

          Stanford-Binet and the WAIS have been the standard IQ tests in the US for decades.
          But, of course, even that is not true and there are many many IQ tests used for different purposes and with different populations.  For example, WAIS is for adults, but you did not mention WISC, which is for children.  And what about Raven's Matrices?  Per Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/...
          Raven's Progressive Matrices (often referred to simply as Raven's Matrices) or RPM, is a nonverbal group test typically used in educational settings. It is the most common and popular test administered to groups ranging from 5-year-olds to the elderly.
          So you did not even mention the most common one.

          If you have a masters in psychology the school that gave it to you should be embarrassed.
