### Not true. IQ has very high test-retest reliability, there are a few well validated instruments (Stanford-Binet, Wechsler and others) that are highly correlated in individuals, and IQ is highly predictive of intellectual achievement, especially at lower to middling-high levels. IQ is as good as it gets in psychometry and precisely for that reason much reviled. Truth hurts… Rafał





Cool thanks Rafal.  Do you (or anyone else here) know if they do these kinds of tests for kids?  I am looking at the question of having my son tested (he’s 9.)
