Summary
"Have you ever wondered what IQ is and how it is measured? Why is there such a premium placed on high IQ? What do we mean by intelligence? What does your IQ score mean? There can be no denying the enduring appeal of IQ over the last century. It is probably one of the most misunderstood yet highly researched psychological constructs ever. Such has been the controversy surrounding this topic that it is difficult to distinguish fact from fiction. The primary aim of Intelligence and Intelligence Testing is to provide a balanced and accurate account of this controversial psychological construct, discussing the history and current status of the research on intelligence and providing an overview of its development, measurement and use. From Galton, Spearman and Binet to the relatively recent controversy caused by the research of Herrnstein and Murray this important book reviews the history, the major and current developments, and makes a major claim about the importance today of "problem solving on demand" as one of the key components of today's notions of intelligence"--Cover
