Intelligence and Intelligence Testing

  • Katharina LochnerEmail author


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).
