M south indian. If someone was performing well in studies at schools, colleges, 90% chance he/she will perform well in all intelligent tests to get jobs?
The question is too: Broad. There are multiple types of intelligence, at least seven. If you are taking a job test is related to your college studies and you have done well on your college studies and there is no reason to doubt that you should do well on your job tasks. However, if the job tests required you to perform an area of intelligence that is less strong for you, then there is no guarantee. I will give you an example. Let's say that you did very good in college but you took a job test to be a musician, and music is something that you do not do well in, then I wouldn't expect you to do well on the test. Chances are however if you would do quite well. Google types of intelligence and see the wikipedia article on it. It will explain this concept to you quite well. Best wishes in your studies and in your job search. It sounds like you really don't have anything to worry about. ...Read more
