HRTs (Big) Flaws
Marco Ripà (sPIqr Society Founder)

Standard HRTs (Main Flaws
:
 
Case 1)
answers selection criteria:A solution MUST be:a) A solution; b) Given a), the best solution (the expected answer have to fit the maximum amount of patterns);c) Given a)+b), it has to be the simplest one.
Case 2)
answers selection criteria:A solution MUST be:a) A solution;
 b’) Given a), the answer which is
the most correct
, taking into account the WHOLE test (e.g.Asterix test).c) Given a)+b), it has to be the simplest one.Case 1)+2)
You should be able enough (lucky) to thinking like the test creator… this is pretty
much easier if you yourself are a test creator.

 N.B.
It is possible that a test creator’s mind/cr 
eativity is affected by another HRT (one or more) he took 
 before… e.g.
you can find some LS36 ideas which have been reproduced by others in their own
spatial test(s) (ditto for numerical items)…

urther reading (concerning HRTs’ decreasing norms, e.g. PS
 N, LS36, 916, etc.):http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hundredth_monkey_effect
Case 1)
, analysis:
The basic rules above define a clear logical
ranking
: it is WRONG by itself… it
has been stated
 by HRTs’ pioneers. This
 ranking (by difficulty, etc.) was born together with the first HRTs!
Top scorers according to their “best/simplest solutions” ranking
HRTs Top Scorers
 
Case 2)
, analysis:
Errors amplification (DOMINO EFFECT)

…Thus, at the present time
, HRTs are quite meaningless (you can use a supervised test to measureIQs <150 and you are no
t measuring something which is strongly related to “geniuses” above150)… in fact, most of Nobel Prizes’ IQs are
below
160.
There is more… I a
m a fast thinker rather than an HRT performer (e.g.http://www.scribd.com/doc/128686857/My-Personal-IQ-
Profile)… so, what is my true IQ?
 
And my “blitz” IQ was grown taking a given subtest multiple times as you can see from the link above…
