Hello Family. This thread is not an academic exercise, nor is expertise with IQ tests required. Instead, it seeks to clearly expose the flawed logic in such tests that are meant to test intelligence. I seek your review and criticism in hopes of strengthening my opinions about the IQ test. That would include finding logic,factual errors,and things that don't seem right according to your experience. IMO,it's a logical impossibility of testing for innate human intelligence.IQ test cannot be statistically demonstrated to measure innate intelligence because there is no way to verify their accuracy without changing the common definitions of intelligence to be a list of quantifiable, real-life criteria to test accuracy. No such list can match the common definitions of innate intelligence, or even come close. http://www.worldchiropracticalliance.org/resources/greens/green5.htm So this is the Problem: IQ tests are fine for purely academic purposes and research papers must be published. But these academic papers are seized upon for political purposes and widely distributed to the general public,those promoters and distributors know very well that the general public will substitute their common definitions of intelligence for the definition effectively used in the research, i.e. the exact verification criteria. Now the reason is obvious: It is self-serving for lots of people (e.g. racists) to make the substitution and promote that substitution, and the social cost to disadvantaged groups is extremely high. Academics and researchers are members of society too. Lots of potentially damaging research requires similar or more stringent safeguards. For example,this type of rhetoric. http://library.flawlesslogic.com/iq.htm This type of drek is no news,but this warrants the assumption that any such document that does not clearly prevent substitution of common definitions of innate intelligence is effectively a racist document, intended or not. Peace!
