    "When speakers were asked to grade various objects on a range of characteristics, Spanish speakers deemed bridges, clocks and violins to have more “manly properties” like strength, but Germans tended to think of them as more slender or elegant. With objects like mountains or chairs, which are “he” in German but “she” in Spanish, the effect was reversed"[Deutscher, 2010].
    Our demonstration today will mimic another experiment performed last year for a student science competition that will show how your perception of gender differs from the perception of gender by a native German speaker.
    This is also exemplified by our video:
    You may be thinking, "So what? My language subtly affects my perception of color, gender, and differentiates the way I think of direction from some far-off group of people that I'm never going to meet." Well, what about other words that may be different in different languages? What if your language affects the way you interact with others? Could difference in thought, affected by difference in native language, cause unnecessary conflict between nations? It could be some food for thought.

    IQ is a score derived from a set of standardized tests that were developed with the purpose of measuring a person's cognitive abilities in relation to one's age group ("Intelligence 2 ," 2004). An intelligence test is also referred to as a cognitive assessment. It is often administered to obtain more information about a student's intellectual strengths and weaknesses and overall cognitive potential. The test gives general information about a student's abilities compared to others in age in several areas. The tests are intended to be a predictor of how well and in what ways a child will learn new information. However, other factors must always be considered. A high IQ does not guarantee success, just as a low IQ does not guarantee failure ("School psychologist ," 2006).

    Validity of IQ test scores are not always satisfied! Most of the psychologists admit that IQ tests are not error free psychological instruments. None of the IQ tests can guarantee 100% accuracy of predictions. However, psychometricians generally view IQ testings with high statistical reliability. A high statistical reliability implies that while test takers can receive varying test scores on differing occasions, when taking the same test and can vary in scores on different intelligent quotient tests taken at the same age, scores generally match out. IQ testing scores are surrounded by an error band that shows what the test taker's true score is likely to be. For modern tests, the standard error of measurement is about 3 points, or in other words, the odds are about 2 out of 3 that a persons true IQ is in range from 3 points above to 3 points below the test IQ. Another description is that there is a 95% chance that the true IQ is in range from 4-5 points above to 4-5 points below the test IQ, depending on the test in question. Clinical psychologists generally regard them as having sufficient statistical validity for many clinical purposes.

    Function
    IQthe IQ test determines how quickly and easily a person can learn and process information.
    When an individual takes an IQ test, his or her scores are then compared with his or her peers' scores--typically, this
    is based on age.Once this comparison is complete, the user is given an abbreviation for “intelligence quotient”. Oxford dictionary defines it, “A number denotingappropriate IQ score. Although scores are scaled differently depending upon the ratioparticular IQ test used, the average IQ score is usually around 100.
    What's Included on the IQ Test?
    Most IQ tests consist
    of 10 to 14 sections, with each focusing on a person’s intelligenceparticular cognitive ability such as comprehension, vocabulary, letter-number sequencing, spatial ability and reasoning. Why does the test focus on these areas? The reasoning is that, since they are abilities, rather than skills, a person cannot manipulate the outcome of the IQ test.
    In other words, a tester should not be able
    to study for the normal or average.” ItIQ test. As a result, the IQ test is derived by dividing your 'mental age' with your chronological age,meant to provide a completely fair and multiplyingunbiased assessment of each tester.
    However, despite these intentions,
    the mean with 100,IQ test has its critics. Many studies claim that the test is targeted to normalizeCaucasians and therefore supplies biased information about other races. In addition, the number. The results are explained with a curve whichtest does not measure one important skill: creativity. Yet despite these criticisms, the IQ test is called Bell Curve ("Are you a," 2004).
