IQ = Intelligence Quotient
A measurement of a persons logical ability and ability to identify and understand logical patterns. Although much-debated these abilities correlate to a lot of common things, such as proficiency for higher education (an average PhD has an IQ of 125).

The scale was originally based on mental age divided by actual age but is nowadays based on a logarithmic curve which orders IQ by percent (about 2/3rds of the population lies between 85 and 115 and about one in 1000 has 150+). The average is 100.

The importance of IQ should however not be overstated since social skills, personality, work morale and other factors are at least as important in a working environment.
IQ is a good measurement for how much you enjoy brain-fapping.

A type of glorified short term memory test, psychology and the media, want people to believe is an indicator of one's 'intelligence'. Based on the convenient assumption that intelligence is constant, and that all the worlds problems really only on thinking really hard about a single aspect of a problem, therefore, ignoring the power of (fast) intuitive insights that are based on making distant connections in the mind, and give way to an answer. Even though most real world problems, in history, began with some insight or intuition into a matter. IQ tests are based on a partial model of truth seeking, that ignores elements of experimental and creative thought.
