    Intelligence Quotient. There are a lot of tests out there, some good, some stupid. The ones that have always seemed the most accurate to me (I don't administrate them, I've just taken a few) are those that concentrate less on knowledge and more on intuition. Some tests are heavy on math and vocabulary. Unfortunately, these can only test what the testee has been exposed to through the course of his/her education. Some test rely more heavily on puzzles and solving problems using factors that are presented in detail as part of the test. These tests also include exercises meant to determine a persons ability to infer and deduce information based on what's presented. For example, cards bearing similar scenes are presented in a random order and the testee is asked to put the cards in a coherent order and tell the story the cards portray. There isn't a right or wrong answer. It's just a mental exercise. These are the tests I like best, and the ones that I feel paint the most accurate picture of a person's intelligence.
     
  5. Hi! Are you planning to test and compare the "Intelligence Quotient" of various chicken breeds? That should be interesting.
    Good luck!

    I am very sorry. I meant S.Q. not I.Q. Now maybe I will start getting some answers that make sense.
    Thanks.
     
  8. Ahhh.
    I think that means 'show quality'.

    [​IMG] whoops!
    sq stands for show quality, which depending on who you ask, is ability to win a show or ability to compete in a show, the phrase has been over used to where it has less meaning. over all it should mean a good quality bird that conforms to the standard. sorry bout the mix up! [​IMG]
