This version is a combination of the normative and ipsative approach: the respondent chooses between four statements to decide which describes them the most and the least and indicates at the same time on a scale of five how much he/she agrees with the individual statements.
The test is a companion to the Raven’s Matrices which measure nonverbal intelligence. It contains words that an intelligent person would probably “know” yet would not be necessarily aware of their meaning. The candidate has to choose the synonym of the words from a list of alternatives.
