IQ

An IQ test is not something a person can study for; either we’ve got a high IQ or we don’t. Which begs the question: What exactly is this IQ factor, and what role (if any) does it play in achievement? Can we really work our way to the top, or is a high IQ a prerequisite for success?

New research suggests an “IQ score” doesn’t tell us much of anything. Instead, intelligence is made up of different types of cognitive abilities.
