Wrong. IQ tests are a good proxy for G (General Intelligence). There are IQ tests that are just shapes and patterns that are fair to all people. IQ correlates to reaction times too...

Back to your earlier statement that stupid parents deliver stupid kids. No one inherits IQ.
Kids copy behavior from other people they grow up with. That makes them stupid (or not).

Goebbels would be happy with you
intelligence = conceived, hypothetical understanding & therefore not measurable
IQ tests only show if someone has general knowledge or a broad interest

You're completely wrong.... some people are simply smarter than others. It's called cognitive inequality. It's sad but true.

Here are some good interviews with experts:

I've never said people aren't smarter, only that IQ test are overrated
replied 277d
The new ones that are being used now are much more accurate - no cultural bias or language barrier, just shapes and pattern recognition.

so the new version is better than the previous one that failed? It's based on...? On the old one? Okay, I rest my case.
But I do like the original concept of IQ test to separate races
replied 277d
Race is observable from shared phenotypes + common ancestry.

The tests keep getting better as they have more testing data to refine which questions are most indicative of intelligence
replied 276d
So they have improved a test to measure a conceived, hypothetical concept like intelligence which can't be measured. Well, good luck
Is the next thing they measure the social contract?
