IQ tests measure a very narrow range of abilities that are related chiefly to successful academic performance. IQ tests do not provide an assessment of overall intellectual competence--A fact that seems to be lost on most people.

iq is highly correlated with a wide variety of positive social outcomes such as length of marriage, probability of not being incarceration, probability of being employed, income etc.
Doesn’t seem that narrow to me.
