According to our recent statistics, men generally performed better on this test.

Cross-cultural or culture-free intelligence tests are designed to minimize the variables upon which diverse cultures differ, such as language and cultural or social context. The objective of such a test is to reduce the bias in favor of a particular culture or sub-culture. It also attempts to reduce or eliminate the influence of reading skills and educational background.

The purpose of this test is to evaluate your general intelligence using abstract relations which are thought to underlie other specific abilities, such as verbal, mathematical, or spatial skills. Spatial aptitude, inductive reasoning, perceptual accuracy, and other group factors have been shown to influence performance on similar tests.

This test was developed primarily to measure Spearman's "g factor". Spearman hypothesized that the g factor (short for the general factor) is common to all intellectual activities. The easier items on this culture-fair test involve the ability to discriminate accurately, while the more difficult ones involve analogies, patterns, and other logical relations. Theoretically, these matrices should involve a factor common to most intelligence tests, with stronger correlations to performance-based IQ tests than to verbal IQ tests.

Performing poorly on this test does not mean that a person will perform poorly in life, and vice versa. Specific abilities can always be developed and improved upon with practice.
