Intelligence Quotient October 17, 2007Posted by jguerreiro in Business Intelligence.
Aceitei o desafio de realizar um teste de IQ e apesar da subjectividade dos indicadores de inteligência, acho que estes devem ser medidos, pois tal como o nome sugere, indicam uma tendência que permite classificar as nossas aptidões. Ajuda-nos a saber quem somos e assim, permite-nos saber para onde queremos ir.
O quoficiente de inteligência, deriva de uma série de testes standard que ajudam a enquadrar os níveis de conhecimento em várias dimensões: espacial, organizacional, de raciocínio, lógica, verbal, visual e numérica. Este número, que define a nossa inteligência, enquadra-se numa distribuição normal e como indicador pode ser extremamente útil na percepção de quem somos, dando-nos a possibilidade, ao ler as suas conclusões de nos elevarmos a um nível de abstracção que nos permita vermo-nos com os nossos próprios olhos.
Realizei o Super IQ Test da Tickle e a seguir publico os resultados:
“The way you think about things makes you a Complex Intellectual. This means you are highly intelligent and have extraordinarily strong verbal and math skills. Compared to others you are a highly conceptual and complex thinker and are able to understand information in an abstract form. You also show great attention to detail. In fact, it’s hard to find something you’re not good at.
You are highly intelligent and talented in two critical areas: math and language. While others may be skilled at one, you are exceptional at both. Your ability to understand theoretical or abstract information and your attention to detail only make your mathematical and linguistic skills stronger. You are a highly conceptual, complex thinker.
Because of your numerous intellectual abilities, you probably rarely come across something you’re not good at. You are a quick study and so have a tendency to look for and find the deeper meaning in things. You might intellectualize a situation or muse about its layers of complexity, making grand-scale associations. While others are relieved to have tangible, concrete information to work with, you may find yourself easily bored and so you seek more intellectual content.
Here’s an example of your Complex Intellectual thinking skills at work in a real-life situation:
You go to a play with a bunch of friends. You recognize that some of the lines from the play are highly similar to a play you read a long time ago in school. Not only that, but you also notice that the play is structured in such a way that those types of lines occur in every other scene in the play. You are excited by your revelations and start explaining this to your friends. You want to go out for coffee and talk about what it all might mean, and whether the author intended it to be this way. Others might be more inclined to talk about the costumes or other more obvious elements of the play, and you shouldn’t take this too personally. Your insights are definitely valuable, so don’t stop sharing them — just be aware that you might occasionally receive some blank stares. Thank goodness you think the way you do!”
