Not an expert on the field, but I vaguely remember IQ to be geared towards analytic skills. No wonder chess players have high IQ.. it's an analytic game Smile

More modern intelligences test consider various dimensions. In addition to analytic skills, others are also tested for: social, musical, physical, artistic, etc.

Susan Polgar undertook one such test for research and results were not impressive... Rolling Eyes
