Damian Ryan: What an IQ test measures is the ability to take IQ tests. There is undoubtedly some correlation between general intellectual capabilities and IQ score, but not as much as the proponents of IQ tests would like to have you believe. I think a lot of people recognise this and that's why most of us don't seem to attach too much importance to them.
