    1. It seems you are interested in evaluating the properties of psychometric soundness for stereotypes, biases and heuristics in intelligence testing.
    i) in answering this question we need to consider gender biases, racial biases, SES biases and immigration biases- first gender bias- in intelligence testing of the past- there were gender biases as men were trained or had more exposure to hands on work that increased eye-hand coordination. Also , recently, new research show that males tend to perform better spatially. So intelligence tests that have lean more on spatial or eye-hand ...
