Main Article Content



Today's culture values intelligence as an indicator of success; though there are many concerns and doubts about how to measure intelligence. The tests used to measure IQ can be biased or misleading, as they usually do not reflect the totality of a person's cognitive abilities in the context in which they find themselves. That’s why we must question and adapt intelligence assessments according to skills and context, and why it is necessary to consider a broader set of criteria and not limit themselves to traditional mechanical faculties, for people to be better valued in the society we live in.
