Abstract

Most doctors know little about clinical and educational psychologists' areas of expertise; although most do know that they carry out intelligence tests. Now, just when doctors have accepted the intelligence quotient (10) as a measure of intelligence, psychologists seem reluctant to use the term. Why? Is something wrong with the concept of IQ? Are IQ tests outmoded?
