About the test
LDA-SWaN is a "mixed in mixed" high range IQ test, designed by Gianluigi Lombardi. It consists of thirty analogies and is looking for the most complete, and among them, the simplest solutions. It aims to measure reliably the general intelligence factor (g) between the first and fifth standard deviations above average. LDA-SWaN tests a mixture of abilities, most of which are g-loaded. Each question requires use of a mixture of abilities cooperatively. It is designed to minimize culture dependence. Idioms in verbal parts are avoided to not disadvantage non-native English speakers.
