How good is IQ as a measure of "intelligence"?

As beings of flawed intelligence ourselves, we probably can't devise an exam that can accurately measure the exact cognitive faculties of each other. Besides, IQ seems to be rather reductionist: IQ tests tend to measure pattern recognition, arithmetics, logical puzzles and the like, but the full range of mental capabilities we have extends beyond that, into skills that are perhaps quite difficult or maybe even impossible to measure in a quantitative value (the whole idea of having IQ points as pseudo-stat points irl seems odd to me). Things such as social abilities, frequency and colour recognition, linguistic skills, self control and discipline, the ability to retain sobriety and self awareness under the influence of strong emotions or drugs. I don't know, it just seems like a flawed system. Besides that, this is ignorance on my part, but how can you accurately state the average inteligence of an entire ethnicity or country? Wouldn't you have to have a tremendous sample size and very thoroughly test a wide range of people in a variety of ways?

These are just my humble two cents. What do you guys think of this?

Okey I need some help. Its a really simple question but I just can´t understand how I get the right amount of Mol.

I have the temperature, volume, gas constant, and the pressure (see pic)

What I get is
n= 1 atm*5.9*10^9L / 0.08206 * 273K
n= 263364874,6 mol

But the answer is supposed to be 2.2335*10^4 mol

Can anyone see where I went wrong? Would be much appreciated, exam tomorrow..

Pic in in Norwegian but you can see the numbers.

I don't drink alcohol, but I enjoy going out with friends sometimes, and am wondering what the best intoxicant is. It should have the following qualities:
-minimal neurotoxicity
-okay for somewhat regular use, like I.e., once or twice a month
-high lasts 2-4 hours, or can be "re-upped"
-no awful hangovers

Please no incidental evidence. Studies conducted by johnny pothead don't count.

Dear /sci/. I almost fucked up royally by letting a mercury lamp almost explode. My supervisor uses it, its worth a few thousand euros. It said in the manual to not let the power go beyond 110 watts. You have to keep checking whether it is close or over this value every few minutes.

What do i do? I turn it on, leave the room, look at memes for about 15 minutes. I come back and lean over to look at the lamps. the mercury lamp is now directly under my head. It feels kind of hot, let me look at the power it is producing.

I'm shocked and after some moments being frozen i turn the value down. nothing exploded, no harm done. But i feel like shit, what if the thing exploded. In my face? i would have died, or ended up disfigured for life...

But what if the thing exploded when i was not near, evenm then i would have been majorly fucked. My research gone to shit togheter with any grade i hoped to get.

I still feel like total shit and I needed to vent...

Thanks for reading!

If addition is just a generalization of counting, in the sense that it lets you count an arbitrary number of times in the same step, and multiplication is a generalization of addition in the same manner, just as exponentiation is a generalization of multiplication, what would a generalization of exponentiation in that sense be like? Could it have any useful applications, or at least interesting properties?

>> No.8944519

Going by the standards of presentablity so you get a good grade (and not just give a true answer that's cause you to flunk out):
A good scientist actually knows what the hell he's talking about and only uses what he knows, not what he thinks he knows.
>Imaginative and Curious
It's curiosity that is the cause of humanity exploring and going as far as taking step on the moon and piloting submarines down to the bottom of the ocean. It's imagination that is why every invention that has been invented was invented.
>Not afraid to admit that they're wrong.
Can't find an explanatory or motivational comment for this, but it is what it is and it's damn true so good luck OP.
>Won't even admit that they are a good scientist.
Even Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein struggled with the insecurities that they were retarded, when we all know damn well they weren't.
