Introduction: 

The following questionnaire is a psychometric test prepared for measuring the non-verbal and non-cultural related cognitive performance. Criterion-Related-Validity studies have shown that the score given through this test is a good indication of the general cognitive aptitude (Bravais-Pearson Correlation with TLAP = .81, N = 86; with CFIT-IIIa = .85, N = 38; with SIT-R = .67, N = 43). The test reliability is very high (Cronbach’s Alpha = .90, N = 528).

The items are more or less arranged in order of difficulty and have to be completed under unhurried conditions. Some of the first items are as easy as required not to have a roof effect in test low scores. In the same view, the last items are as difficult as required not to have a ceiling effect in test high scores.

Answering:

Answers for the questionnaire have to be written on a sheet of paper in order of item arrangement. On top of each numbered answer sheet, you must provide the following information: Name and Surname, Age (Years and Months), Gender, Educational Level, Occupation and Society(ies) to which you belong. If you have previous scores from supervised intelligence or aptitude tests (SAT I, GRE, etc.), these results must be also mentioned with score, test name and date of test taking.

Send your answers by classical postal mail (no FedEx!) to “Dr. Jouve, 8 Les Plantées, 38330 Biviers, France” including 20 USD and a self-addressed business size envelope (or if you prefer receiving the score report by email, please mention your e-address without enclosing an envelope).

Are there any numbers which can precede or follow this sequence ? Explain your reasoning. 

 

50. Except the first and the second elements, which are correctly located, each element corresponds to a different line of a 4*5 matrice: 
    The first element of this sequence is also the first one of each line and the second element is the second one of the first line (as it has been said above, both are correctly located). 
    All the other elements are in the same place as the one they have in their own line, so we could consider that the last four elements (ie. all except the first) represent a diagonal of a 4*4 matrice. You work is to find the missing element of the sequence and to find the second diagonal sequence of 4 elements.
