Are IQ and Personality Related?

Traditionally in Psychology intelligence and personality have been thought of as two seperate things. However, research from 2014, presented in Scientific American suggests otherwise. The research presented in this article suggests that intelligence is actually a personality trait. Furthermore, the results indicated, much like prior research, that IQ was most strongly related to openness to experience. Openness to experience explores a person’s willingness to go out of their comfort zone (or not). 

While openness to experience is the overall term, this aspect of personality actually consists of nine dimensions. Of these nine dimensions, eight of them were positively related to IQ. Meaning that people with higher IQ also scored higher on these personality dimensions. These eight dimensions were: intellectual engagement, intellectual creativity, mental quickness, intellectual competence, introspection, ingenuity, intellectual depth, and imagination. IQ was, however, not related to sensitivity to beauty. Do you have these characteristics and a high IQ? To find out here IQ, visit this site.

About the Test My Metrics IQ Test:

We developed our Professional IQ Test after extensive study into the latest intelligence research and IQ measurement methods. Our goal was to develop an accurate, valid, reliable IQ test that was Culture-fair and could easily be given online.

The TMM IQ Test is based on a classic intelligence assessment called Raven’s Progressive Matrices. Raven’s Progressive Matrices (RPM) was originally developed by John C. Raven in 1936 and is still widely used today. It is a nonverbal test, meaning test takers do not need to respond verbally. Therefore, the test is suitable for a broad age range of test takers, from 5-year-olds to the elderly. Since RPM assesses non-verbal aspects of intelligence, it can also be applied to various cultures without requiring any changes. Finally, the test is easy to administer and score.

The questions on the test all consist of a 3×3 matrix. Each matrix is missing an element in the lower right corner. Test takers must choose which image is the missing element in the matrix from 8 possible answers.
