Useful sites that increase the level of intelligence
IQ (eng. IQ - intelligence quotient, reads "IQ") - a quantitative assessment of the level of human intelligence (IQ): the level of intelligence relative to the level of intelligence of the average person (same or middle age); in a narrower sense, the relation of the so-called mental age to the true chronological age of a given person (individual). Determined using special tests. The intelligence quotient is an attempt to estimate the total intelligence factor (g). IQ tests are designed so that the results are described by a normal distribution with an average IQ of 100, and in such a spread that 50% of people have an IQ between 90 and 110 and 25% less than 90 and above 110. An IQ value of less than 70 often qualifies as mental retardation.
