AC: How can intellect be effectively and objectively measured? Intelligence is such an oblique, obfuscating concept to begin with, much less as a quantifiable aspect of our personality. Many have, and will continue to, argued that all current standardized tests are inherently flawed on several flaws. After all, the only quotient any test really measures is the ability to take that particular test. As such, the elements involved with such a test are the only significant factor involved, and many accuse I.Q. testing as holding an overall English-speaking bias.
