Intelligence and Intelligence Testing

Chapter

Abstract

Most online tests measure intelligence or facets of intelligence. The most extensive research in personality has been applied to the area of intelligence (Holling, Preckel, & Vock, 2004). Intelligence tests have been shown to be amongst the most valid predictors of outcomes such as job performance (Schmidt & Hunter, 1998), academic performance (Watkins, Lei, & Canivez, 2007), health (Gottfredson, 2004), and socioeconomic status (Roberts, Kuncel, Shiner, Caspi, & Goldberg, 2007). Despite this fact, there is no universally valid definition of the term (Asendorpf & Neyer, 2012).
