IQ should have a physical fitness and hands on skills portion of the test. Just because some geek can memorize a bunch of shapes it shouldn't mean he's smarter than a guy who might not be classically educated but knows his way around the land and can survive in the wilderness but might not do well with proper test taking.

We're evolving to not even need instincts. Paranormal beings soon I recon.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Beaver can survive pretty good
Provided there is suitable wood for it to construct a home, also suitable lakes, rivers, etc are needed

IQ tests are designed to predict how well you can do white collar jobs.
That's why its laughable when blacks talk about the tests being biased against them - if the tests are biased, then so are the jobs the tests predict the taker's performance of.
Of course the blacks are right but do they really want to prove they're useless at white collar jobs?

>a test of mental capabilities should include tests of physical capabilities
I don't think that's going to happen

I just think you should have to apply your IQ a person with 200 IQ is probably a really low natural IQ when put in a situation to apply it like in a survival situation or social situation

Maybe EQ would be better for social situations. Just that an IQ test is supposed to be a generic, language agnostic test that any human can understand without prior training, whereas survival skills are more specific skills a person needs to learn before they can do them
