    I wrote a book about INTPs. pages. No kidding. What's in it? Well, the book answers burning esoteric questions like, "What musical instruments do INTPs play?". This hurts the self-esteem and the opportunities available tomany minority children. But worse than this, I.Q. tests have in the past beenused to support claims of racial or cultural hierarchies.

    One problem associated with identification of gifted minorities is that the research and literature on minorities has focused more on deficits than on strengths. Obstacles to identification include language differences, inappropriate use of I.Q. information, differences in home and cultural backgrounds, effects of poverty, limited out-of-school.   District 15 in Brooklyn, which uses the I.Q. test and another kind of intelligence test, gives priority to minority children who meet the threshold score on those tests.

    Although not all experts agree, some maintain that IQ tests are fair to both majority and minority children because A) IQ tests are the only available between-race comparisons of mental ability. B) any biases against one group are offset by comparable biases against the other group. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.

IQ classification is the practice by IQ test publishers of labeling IQ score ranges with category names such as "superior" or "average". There are several publishers of tests of cognitive abilities. No two publishers use exactly the same classification labels, which have changed from time to time since the beginning of intelligence testing in the early twentieth century.
