Canadian Researchers Cast Doubt on IQ’s Validity
While so much is being said about IQ level of people, it has been recently claimed that it's not the right criteria to analyze brain power. It has been claimed by Canadian researchers From Western University that IQ alone cannot judge one's mental and cognitive ability. There are many other factors which must be counted before judging.
"We expected a few hundred responses, but thousands and thousands of people took part, including people of all ages, culture and creeds from every corner of the world", said Adrian M. Owen, the project's senior investigator, while sharing how they conducted online intelligence survey. It was further told that the survey included 12 cognitive tests, on the lines of memory, reasoning, attention and planning abilities.
All the participants were also checked on their backgrounds and lifestyle habits before making conclusion. The results underline how factors like short-term memory, reasoning and verbal ability, were crucial enough for performing in the tests. Apart from the same, it has also been confirmed that brains of a select group of participants were examined through functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
The research has been published today in the journal Neuron. It is expected that extended research is done on the same to surface other factors which help in judging a person's real strength.
