Further Reading I vividly remember one of my first sightings of a large software project. I was taking a summer internship at a large English electronics company. My manager, part of the QA group, gave me a tour of a site and we entered a huge depressing warehouse stacked full with cubes. I was told that this project had been in development for a couple of years and was currently integrating, and had been integrating for several months.
Every item on an IQ test is a sampling. Think about that for a minute, and the implications of multiple sampling. Antistotle September 27, at But smoke a bowl before going in. Or have a couple long island Ice teas. Or heck, influenza or rhinovirus.
A room that is too hot, or too noisy. Which I suspect is what GeneralDisarray is getting at.
Your intuition about IQ testing and testing generally is flawed. You misremember less than you normally would, you recall quicker than you normally would, or the reverse. You reason more sloppily or less sloppily. There is no reason to expect that you would systematically undershoot more than you overshoot, unless you are up against a ceiling that is too low.
Certainly the idea that you would never overshoot is insane.

GeneralDisarray September 27, at This is what has been given around the world and characterized. This is part of noise.
Everyone suffers from this. You could get more than average or less than average.
But if you try the test again because you are convinced you had more than average negative noise, you are creating a systematic bias which is far worse if you want a representative result. There are some really unlucky people who lost way more dice rolls than chance would indicate, and some really lucky people who won way more.
IQ is a thing in the real world with certain error bars.
If he goes on to win a Nobel Prize, that g-loaded achievement should be stacked up next to his actual IQ result, and that revealed error is important. If you take 5 different IQ tests and average them, or whatever, the accuracy of that result is not necessarily relevant at all to the guy who took AN IQ test and wants to know how representative that is.
There could be something biasing the results of all these tests. There is very likely some that you can reduce, but to characterize the reduction you need a significant sample OF these multiple sampling composite tests. The general intelligence factor, your success at intellectually straining tasks.
General intelligence is not IQ. IQ is an attempt to measure general intelligence. A pretty damn good attempt, at that. What can I say, we live in an imperfect world. Your IQ is the result that you got.
Your IQ is exactly what it was before. You created something else, which happened to be better lucky you, very lucky. We have lots of data about what it means when you take a dudester and you give them an IQ test and you look at the result and you look at the dudester. This is what we have data on.
Stay in this world. This is the world of information that is of known utility. In the latter case as GeneralDisarray and Antistotle are arguingthere are lots of factors that might cause the results to skew downwards hungover, tired, uncomfortable ; but almost none that will cause a symmetrical bias in the positive direction.
These are two ways of saying the exact same thing. There are gradations to everything, including how hungry or tired or itchy you are. Including how distracting or comfortable the testing environment is.
Including how lucky or unlucky you get on the many dice rolls. But it still seems to be missing the point of contention here.
