Average IQ Testing Online
All of these IQ tests measure your fluid intelligence (Gf) with a high degree of accuracy. Culture-fair, fluid intelligence IQ tests do not require any knowledge of a written language other than understanding a simple set of instructions for the test. IQ tests of this kind therefore do not have any cultural or gender biases. These types of IQ tests focus on pattern recognition, rotation, and logical sequencing. Non-verbal fluid IQ tests were first administered during WW2 in the form of the Army Beta test. Fluid IQ tests are now widely administered and are often a staple for acceptance into high IQ societies such as Mensa.
The key to a good performance on these types of IQ tests is to balance speed and accuracy. The most difficult element of the proctor-administered fluid IQ test is that of time. Test takers should budget between 15-18 seconds per IQ test question for maximum effectiveness.
Well-designed culture-fair IQ tests are excellent for measuring fluid intelligence (or simultaneous processing), which is associated with the right hemisphere of the brain. Fluid and crystallized intelligence will normally correlate although a high level of fluid intelligence is more likely to predict strong verbal intelligence as fluid intelligence allows for “investment” into one’s knowledge-based verbal intelligence. Fluid intelligence is roughly analogous to the raw process power of the brain, while crystallized intelligence is more akin to the various pieces of software that are able to run on the processor. Fluid IQ typically peaks at the of 25, and in the absence of cognitive training may begin to decline as we age.
