# These 5 Questions Appeared In A 1950s IQ Test. Can You Answer At Least 1 Correctly?

IQ Tests have been around for many years, are you able to answer any of the questions in this 1950s IQ test correctly?

IQ tests have a rather dark history. Paul Broca (1824-1880) and Sir Francis Galton (1822-1911) were both scientists and were the first to measure a person’s intelligence. By measuring a person’s skull, they thought they could figure out how smart someone was. According to them, a larger skull indicated more intelligence.

It was more or less around the same time when another, scientist Wilhelm Wundt (1932-1920), measured how smart someone was by using introspection. This is the human ability to reflect on their own thoughts.

Today, all these scientist’s methods of measuring intelligence are outdated and no longer used. While they are no longer used in a typical IQ test, they still were the backbone of the modern version and play a big role in the development thereof.[1]
