What is the Culture Fair IQ Test (CFIT)?

An intelligence test in which performance is not based on experience with or knowledge of a specific culture.

The Culture Fair Intelligence Test (CFIT) was constructed by Raymond B. Cattell, PhD, DSc in an attempt to produce a measure of cognitive abilities that accurately estimated intelligence devoid of sociocultural and environmental influences. Scholars have subsequently concluded that the attempt to construct measures of cognitive abilities devoid of the influences of experiential and cultural conditioning is a challenging one. Cattell proposed that general intelligence comprises both Fluid Intelligence and Crystallized Intelligence.

Unlike the most widely used individual tests of cognitive abilities, such as the current editions of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale and the Stanford–Binet Intelligence Scale, which report cognitive ability scores as "deviation IQs" with 15 IQ points corresponding to one standard deviation above or below the mean, Cattell built into the CFIT a standard deviation of 24 IQ points. This means that scores on the Cattell Culture Fair test are not directly comparable with scores on other intelligence tests unless a transformation is applied.
