Ch 11/12 Activity After completing the IQ and receiving my score, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I would be considered as “gifted.” While I am hardly complaining about my score, I do not feel that the test was an accurate assessment of my intellectual abilities. Many of the questions, in my opinion, seemed to be centered towards those individuals that excel in subjects such as mathematics. I would not consider myself one of those individuals and, truthfully, found myself guessing on a couple of questions. It is important to consider, however, that several factors could have lead to my receiving this IQ score including my experiences, culture, and home environment. Having come from what some would consider a higher SES household could be a contributing factor in my IQ score. Studies have shown that individuals who were brought up in higher SES homes can have up to a nine point difference in their intelligence scores.
