• First define IQ. Most of the intelligence tests use spatial recognition as a primary factor: those rotating geometric designs and word scrambles. If you're good with mazes, you'll probably do well.

If you have not ben raised with exploring/reading/school pounded into your head, it is going to be much more difficult to excel in IQ/SAT aptitude tests.
