NON VERBAL REASONING


Non verbal reasoning tests measure your ability to recognize patterns, analogies and classifications in
diagrams. They offer multiple choice questionnaires. You are not required specific language skills to solve
the problems. Even your acquired knowledge in some particular field is not tested.
The non verbal reasoning tests have been showing a high level of reliability and a good predictive
validity. They are considered culturally free IQ tests. They are not only used in job screening process but
also to recruit students for different academic trainings.

What is non verbal reasoning?


Simply put non verbal reasoning is all reasoning that is not verbal reasoning and verbal reasoning is the ability
of reasoning by using concepts framed in words. So actually non verbal reasoning is a term which stands for a
broad range of reasoning skills like e.g. abstract reasoning, diaghrammatic reasoning, spatial reasoning,
numerical reasoning and many more.
Non-verbal reasoning involves drawing conclusions based on a set of facts either fictional or non fictional.
Exercises include activities like describing the similarities and differences between two pictures, finding the
shape that does not belong in a sequence of shapes, predicting what shape should next appear in the sequence,
and so on. Non-verbal reasoning exercises can also include numerical and aural activities, where non-speech
sounds must be matched, differentiated, or compared and contrasted and even some syllogisms can be
categorized as non verbal reasoning. Fibonicci contains a broad range of these non verbal reasoning problems
for you to practice:
abstract reasoning tests
spatial reasoning tests
instrument comprehension tests
number sequences tests

Non verbal reasoning in everyday life


But also in the everyday life even though speech is the most obvious form of communication. Ones non verbal
reasoning skills are an invaluable asset, since people are constantly bombarded by non verbal impulses, signals
and gestures. Actually people use their non verbal intelligence much more then their verbal intelligence.
Almost everything you will encounter in life you will first judge by visual interpretation, because this is simply
the easiest, fastest and it can be done without drawing attention to oneself. So your first impression of
something or somebody is almost always based on your non verbal reasoning skills. For example if you try to
judge somebody on their looks you are actually using non verbal reasoning to do this.

Non verbal reasoning practice


Non-verbal reasoning is also called fluid reasoning. It is an intentional cognitive process that does not occur
automatically. It involves the use of deliberate and controlled mental operations to solve novel problems.
Mental operations often include drawing inferences and forming concepts when language is not involved. This
of course can be practiced and non verbal intelligence can be trained. Fibonicci offers a wide range of
possibilities for you so feel free to pick a test in de top menu and enjoy your training! If you have problems
with non verbal reasoning tests then please read the next paragraph.

Non verbal reasoning learning strategies


In this paragraph some handy advices are given to keep in mind when practicing non verbal reasoning tests.
The tips shown in this paragraph are made to make it easier to solve non verbal reasoning test problems.

Learn strategies to increase understanding and retention of concepts


Self-talk, try to guide yourself through the problem verbally
Rely on your memory to learn problem-solving through repetition and rote recall
Learn problem-solving techniques in the contexts in which they are most likely to be applied
Learn and emphasize reading comprehension skills as early as possible so the student may rely on
reading and rereading to ensure comprehension of concepts
Use repetition and review of concepts to ensure over-learning, then check that your memory for the
material includes comprehension
Structure and adjust the difficulty level of the practice test to your own level where possible

Patterns in Non Verbal Reasoning Tests

This section of non verbal reasoning tests deals with the problems based upon
continuation of figures. The series of figures offered will show some kind of pattern depicting some
continuous change or movement step by step. You will have either to detect some figure out of
the pattern or select a figure from the other set of figures to continue the pattern to the next step.
Generally, the pattern items consist of two series. One series of figures is numbered as A, B, C, D
and E and is called the problem set. The following series contain five other figures numbered as 1,
2, 3, 4 and 5 and forms the answering set. You are required to identify a hidden pattern in the
problem side and choose a figure from the answer side to continue the pattern.

ANALOGY

ANALOGY
Analogy implies Corresponding. In the problems based on analogy, a pair of related figures is provided and
a similar relationship is to be established between two other figures, by selecting one or both of them from a
set of alternatives.

TYPE:1 CHOOSING ONE ELEMENT OF A SIMILARLY RELATED PAIR


Choosing One Element of a Similarly Related Pair
This type of questions in non verbal reasoning tests are consist of four figures marked as A, B, C and D. The
figures A and B form a pair and C and D another pair with a question mark in the D. This set is called problem
side. You shall find five more figures forming a set marked with 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. It forms the answering side.
When you attempt such analogy items, you shall find the figures A and B related to each other with some
particular relationship. The figure C shall be a different figure and you would be required to find a figure for
question mark in figure D from the answering set while establishing a relationship similar to the relationship
between A and B.
A simple look at the answering side shall find the right solution if you have correctly established analogous
relationship between A and B.

TYPE:2 CHOOSING THE SET OF SIMILARLY RELATED FIGURES

ANALOGY

In this type of questions on analogy, a related pair of figures is provided followed by five other pairs of figures.
The first pair is unnumbered and depicts a particular relationship between the two figures. The five pairs are
numbered as 1,2,3,4, and 5.The examine has to choose one pair out of the five, which most closely resembles
the relationship indicated by figures in the unnumbered pair.
