    Are IQ tests tilted in favor of Intuitive types

    From my understanding IQ tests have multiple answers, some obvious and others more hidden.
    The more hidden answers you get the higher your IQ is, so it would seem that if you're naturally intuitive the test would be in your favor while someone who naturally looks for the fastest solution would get a lower IQ.
    Is this really true?
    If so why don't they tell you this?


    If this was already discussed, sorry I couldn't find it using the search button.

    I can't take IQ tests seriously to begin with.

    psychologist I knew said, that it's very reliable thing and it's almost impossible to fake high scores (for real test)

    Reliable at what is the question. I don't doubt that they get consistent results, I doubt that what is being measured is necessarily valid or useful.

    I would love to take an IQ test, but I'm honestly afraid that I'll score really low and feel bad about myself.
    I tend to choose whats most obvious when I'm taking these kinds of tests, and tend to feel unsure when I look for "hidden" answers as tend to feel that the most obvious answer should be the correct one.

    well my scores were ranging from average to very high (due to multiple intelligences being tested)

    As an adult timed tests penalize cautious and creative thought processes. Adults just need enough intelligence and knowledge to complete most items and enough stupidity to do it like a robot. It can tell reliably if a kid is intellectually precocious or retarded. It was designed for that purpose anyway.

    For adults, life is the test. If you can solve what no one solves, if you can invent what no one invents, you're smart. Or else you're average. And if you think you're smart despite not achieving any creative greatness, you're most likely below average.

    Quite a few decades ago, a bunch of american savant idiots did a large scale IQ experience and kept track of the young students whose score was above 130. It occurs that many years later, two nobel prize winners who participated to that experience scored a tad BELOW 130, barely failing the test, and none of those above achieved anything significant.

    Which tests are you talking about?

    Is this really true?
    I don't know about IQ tests in general, but test takers can score more points on one of the verbal subtests of the adult Wechsler if they give more than one definition of the given word.

    If so why don't they tell you this?
    Speaking of the example I gave above, the test administrator asked me if I had more to add to my answer, but didn't say anything about the scoring specifically.

    I assume that would defeat the purpose of the test in some way.

    It's in favor of the rational thinking types. I think IQ is bs in the sense that it's not a "static" thing, and there's plenty of science to back that up Intense prep for law school admission test alters brain structure | Berkeley News
