As usual, a monthly survey research was conducted on this platform to collect participants’ opinions about their frequency of using the IQ test. Below are the results:

Research Question
Is the frequency of using the IQ test the same for everyone?

Hypotheses
1. Frequency of using the IQ test varies

2. Frequency of using the IQ test is general

Research method
This brief research utilized a survey method of research where a poll was designed with a 7-point open-ended response pattern. Unlike the previous month, which had nine participants took part in the survey, this month is a little bit better. We had 13 participants took part in the survey, leaving us with more data from which we could draw inferences. With less regard to sample size, let’s have a look at the report.

Research report
The research was a survey research used to determine the frequency at which people use the IQ test as a measure of intelligence. The results were shown in percentile scores below:

- 46% of the participants agreed that they use the IQ test because it is fun

- 38% of the participants agreed that sometimes use the IQ test

- 15% of the participants agreed that they seldomly use the IQ test

- 7% of the participants agreed that they use the IQ test, at no cost

- 1% of the participants can't say

- 0% of the participants agreed that they do not test their IQ

- 0% of the participants agreed that they do not know what the IQ test is.

What this data suggests
A gross percentage of the participants have agreed that IQ test is fun, therefore they use it. This could be related to the reward pattterns in the brain, when a fun stumulus triggers the release of the dopamine and serotonine neurotransmitters, and leaving a need to always come back to the fun or emotion arousing stimulus (IQ test). People who come back to the IQ test usually see it as a brain 'game'.

While IQ critics usually disregard the use of an IQ test as much as the IQ-obsessed do, this survey is a totally different turn by showing that people use the IQ test if they feel like. A gross percentage of the participants also agreed to this.

Also, it has been discovered that everyone has tested their IQ at one time or the other, while a tiny percentage are unsure, so they could not say whether they have ever tested their IQ or not.

Conclusion
Now what? As we can see the above data, it appears that the frequency of using the IQ test varies even with its rationale (reason behind its use).

Thanks to research, we are looking forward to what the result of this month's survey would be. You want to vote now or buy the IQ booster and test prep? Please, feel free.
