It’s about g, stupid.

The Science of Cognition

The debate over intelligence and intelligence testing focuses on the question of whether it is useful or indeed meaningful to evaluate people according to a single major dimension of cognitive competence. Is there indeed a general mental ability we commonly call ‘intelligence’, and is it important in practical aspects of life? The answer, based on decades of intelligence research, is an unequivocal yes.

No matter their form or content, tests of mental skills invariably point to the existence of a global factor that permeates all aspects of cognition. Psychologists have devoted much effort to isolating this general factor, which is abbreviated g, from the other aspects of cognitive ability gauged in mental tests.

Reliable Cognitive Assessments

Dipping your toe
won’t get you to the other side.

You may have a cognitive assessment of sorts already included as part of your recruitment process. Maybe it’s a simple paper-based test you’ve developed yourself to check stand-alone skills like numerical or verbal reasoning? Or maybe it’s something you got someone to develop for you, at great expense. But, does it cover the full gambit of cognitive abilities, is it automatically integrated with the rest of your candidate or staff profiles, and more importantly is it actually a valid basis of assessment.

Regardless of the answer, what you really need is to reliably predict whether the candidate will perform well in your business and for this you need to measure g.
