  • What is an IQ test?

An IQ test is a test conducted to determine the mental abilities of an individual. This test consists of several more or less complex questions that need to be solved within a specified time period. The result is given out in the form of a score. Higher the score, higher the intelligence and vice versa.

These tests are used in different fields to judge a person's skills. In fact, many organizations require applicants to submit their scores when hiring new candidates .

There are various kinds of IQ tests though and not all of them measure the same mental capacities of a person.
