Intelligence tests are biased towards people with educational experience and certain cultures. It has to be altered for different countries i.e. a third world country compared to a county like China whose culture is very education orientated and children are usually far ahead of others at the same age in other countries.

Hello, thank you for your response. You are implying that intelligence tests are biased towards people with educational experience and certain cultures. Does this mean that because of their socio-economic status that the psychometric test scores will be much higher, compared to disadvantaged minority groups? In other words, the psychometric tests unintentionally are biased because of the results? Please can you clarify.

Kind regards,
Chad
