Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Binet-Standford IQ test is pseudo-science.  First, we do not have a consensual scientific definition of "intelligence;" people researching the phenomena use various grades and shades of "I'll Know It When I See It."  Second, the test was developed in the 1920s by racists and eugenicists and - surprise!  Surprise! - "proved" (sic) the darker a person's skin the lower their "intelligence" (sic.)
