I like Psychology very much. And When I read about you in the esteem column of Dr. Matloob Hussain, I searched the internet. Finally, I landed upon your website on the internet.
My PURPOSE: Please accept me under your studentship. and send me your new psychological articles.
Admin Response: It is very simple my friend.
Please join the RSS feeds/Blogs. You can find RSS feeds links on almost every page below the left side navigation. Whenever I publish anything on this website, it is published in the RSS feeds. You can also read 'What is RSS feeds' at the same place if RSS/XML is new thing for you.
You may also like to join "The Psych Up" my irregular monthly ezine. But that is too irregular and I may miss months for my full time job and social life activities.
We would never use the shocking language you have shown on your page. These so called sections of intelligence is not accurate at all (its well below average). You are giving our profession a bad name although I would be shocked if you guys were really psychologists and this was really IQ tests that you use.
I just recently took and failed a mechanical aptitude test by the smallest of margins. Simply because I was never informed the basic principles of pulleys and gears attached by belts. After finding this website I feel fully capable of taking and passing this exam if it is given to me again.
This little test is good enough to suit the purpose for which it was intended - to provide a sample. The questions are fine and it works for me for what I am looking for in a pre-employment testing situation. Nuff said.
The information you are providing is very misleading, as a Psychologist we are aware that every test has its limitations and a standard of error is taken into consideration with every psychometric test, particularly WAIS.
It is incorrect to state:
"However, it is still lacking reliable evidence to prove its validity. It is also proven that Wechsler IQ test rating has not been constant throughout its use. "
The above statement is simply ignorant. WAIS has a multitude of evidence backing it's high level of reliability and validity. An education in Statistics and Psychology would change your statement that Wechsler IQ is lacking reliable evidence to prove it's validity. For starters, statistical evidence is always used to SUPPORT, not PROVE reliability and validity. This is just showing the ignorance of the author of this article, as this would be made clear within a few lectures of first year 'Introduction to Statistics'.
It is also incorrect to state:
"It is also proven that Wechsler IQ test rating has not been constant throughout its use."
"Proven?" Again the use of this word indicates the ignorance of the author. The author is stating that the WAIS lacks evidence to PROVE reliability and validity, yet stating that the same evidence has PROVEN that it is not constant throughout it's use. Let me re-iterate the danger in using the word PROVE in statistics.
The ranges of intellectual functioning that the author in the article has stated are part of the WAIS, are INCORRECT.
PLEASE educate the author of this article to complete at least the first few lectures of STAT101 and PSYC101 before writing an article that is embarrassing to the author and the reputation of the website. Or better, have it re-written by a Psychologist.
My name is Giovani a high school student in Las Vegas Nevada and i have family in the electrical field which is catching my attention for a future career. The only thing I am not sure about is I am not super knowledgeable of anything electrical and i don't know where to start learning or a way i could start studying the field before i apply. I am trying to get an edge on the competition but not sure where to start. Anyway its a great article and I am very glad and pleased I read it. If there is anyway you can write me some valuable info or any tips that would be great.
or even nowadays people absorbed the midst of facebooking or simply FB, for they think it is a kind of relaxation. but some also find it as a simple way of communicating with your friends..etc... but there are some instances that these could somehow affect us in a way that could be only observed by the people around us.. somehow we give much time to it than giving priorities to much important things
