How does it influence our lives? Does having a high IQ mean that you will succeed in life and your career? Is it important at all?

IQ is an acronym for Intelligence Quotient. It is a measure of your reasoning ability. In short, it helps us understand how well you can process information to make decisions, predict future events, or answer questions. A standard IQ test measures your short- and long-term memory and takes into account your ability to solve puzzles and memorize information.

A person's IQ score can be calculated by having them take an intelligence test. The average IQ score is 100.

In this read, you will find out how to increase your IQ score (and if it can be increased at all), how IQ tests work, and why IQ matters.

What are IQ tests used?

IQ tests have been around for more than 100 years. They were created in Europe to identify those students who need help in school. Modern IQ tests can come in various forms: some are used to assess children’s intelligence, some are designed for adults. However, IQ tests sometimes fail to accurately assess someone’s intelligence because they only work for people who share similar cultures.

But does a high IQ score really help you be more successful? Do people with higher IQ perform better at work? Is it easier for them to learn new skills? Is your cognitive ability more important than your emotional intelligence?

It’s very tempting to read into someone’s IQ score: most people think that IQ shapes our lives. However, experts say that it’s not wholly true. Your IQ score can tell you how well you can do in particular situations or spheres (for example, art, engineering, and so on). You need to understand that achievements and success depend on many factors, such as persistence, ambitions, and even luck!
