Abstract Reasoning Test Assessment

Abstract means extracting something, and abstract reasoning means quickly analyzing and using data that doesn’t have numbers. It’s done by detecting patterns and solving complex problems that are intangible in nature. That’s why the abstract reasoning test is also called the conceptual reasoning test, as it can measure how fast a candidate will be able to understand new concepts and ideas.

You don’t have to create a different fluid intelligence test, as abstract reasoning tests can measure fluid intelligence. Coined by R.B. Cattell - fluid intelligence means solving problems without relying on past knowledge or experience.

Finding value out of the blue isn’t easy, and that’s what abstract thinkers are known for. It’s easier for them to relate everything to everything else and find deeper meaning. So, abstract thinkers can think about things that aren’t physically in front of them. This helps them to connect and use data that they have previously read somewhere else.
