“To measure intelligence with an IQ test is like measuring your body’s capacity with bicep curls”
Since many years there has been a growing awareness in the science community (read here) that there exists not just one, but many different kinds of intelligences. Beside the logic capacity that is often measured in “IQ-tests” there are verbal, spatial, visual, interpersonal and even musical intelligence. And many more.
“When you come to the most complex known object, the human brain, the idea that there is only one measure of intelligence had to be wrong.”
— Dr. Roger Highfield
There are currently no consensus within the scientific community around the kinds of intelligence, but one of the leading researchers in this area, Howard Gardner, currently divides intelligence into:
L-IQ, Logical IQ, or ordinary IQ.
M-IQ, Musical IQ
V-IQ Visuell/Spatial IQ
B-IQ, Bodily IQ
I1-IQ, Intrapersonal IQ
I2-IQ, Interpersonal IQ
N-IQ, Naturalistic IQ
M-IQ, Memory
C-IQ, Creative intelligence
(The abbreviations are ours)

In order to make any kind of estimation on a person's overall intelligence, all of these should be tested separately. As we devised our little test, we slowly realised that this has never been done before. Perhaps because so much of this research is relatively current? Anyhow- There are a multitude of tests of musical IQ, Interpersonal IQ and so on, but no one test to test them all. In that sense this is pioneering work.

Originally the test was devised as a fun way for us to scout for employees, but we noticed people liked it so much we decided to develop it further, and put it up to the general public.
This said; the test we need your help to develop does is no way purport to present or represent the depth of the scientific research into this area. We are simple people who, through our work, have come to accept there are many types of intelligence that are often connected, and if this in any way can inspire more awareness around the complexity of intelligence, and more research, we would be super happy.
