I found the debate that we had in discussion over whether IQ tests should be used as the determining factor for hiring managers in various companies. The test is suppose to cover all of the general areas of intelligence and it is claimed to have been written in a way that all people can take it and get accurate results. So on the surface it sounds like a good idea to use the IQ test to determine all hiring processes because in a perfect world a boss will be able to just look up people with the desired IQ and find the best candidates to interview.
However this isn't a perfect world and there are a few things that the IQ test can't accurately measure. Some of these things include personality, experience, adaptability, ability to communicate effectively, etc. Though the test does a decent job of weeding out some of the people that don't really fit the job requirements, however it does not always pick the best possible candidate and can even cause you to deny the one person who would have filled the management spot the best. Though at the end of the day, this is a very circular argument because for every point one side makes, there is a conflicting point for the other side. This is just my take on the ongoing debate and I invite others to share their thoughts on the matter as well.
