There is therefore enormous potential for us to expand our brainpower considerably and regular testing is a key method of doing just that. Included in this book are 40 brand new psychometric tests and two intelligence tests. The psychometric tests cover such subjects as risk-taking, leadership, positivity, aggression, tact, ambition, tolerance and imagination. The intelligence tests use word and number puzzles, maths and diagrams to test your spatial, verbal, numerical and logical ability to the limit. There are nearly 1,000 individual questions in all. Scores and answers to all the tests are included. Use this and other books in the "IQ Workout Series" as a fun and informative way of testing, assessing, and expanding your brainpower!
