That's not true. And while I understand what you're saying, everyone also understands what the guy above is saying with his comment.

I'm just talking about IQ. The way I understand it the test is supposed to be age neutral as well as race and sex neutral. I've take the test a long (long long) time ago when I was about 10.

IQ is corrected for age so that it stays roughly level over a person's lifespan, barring things like neurological diseases or stroke, obviously. The test is not supposed to contain culturally loaded items (things you'd only know if you grew up in a particular culture or region), but there are noticeable, significant statistical differences between how the sexes and different races score. I can go into more detail if you like, but I'm on mobile at the moment.
