Are there any studies, which shows that High IQ people are good or average or bad in problem solving/other professions?

Need to know that High IQ correlates to very good problem solving skills or not.

    $\begingroup$ Hi SzD, assuming you refer with "IQ" to somewhat like fluid intelligence, I would guess, that your question is a bit circular. The problem is, that fluid intelligence is generally referred to as a "reasoning and novel-problem solving ability" (Gray et al., 2003. p. 316: jtoomim.org/brain-training/…; you can also scan the book of Cattell: intelligence, it’s structure, growth and action). Thus intelligence = Problem solving … so there is tons of literature. Do you have any specific area in mind (e.g. chess)? $\endgroup$ – bucky Oct 10 '18 at 22:45
  • $\begingroup$ I'm a little confused at your question. Why is "problem solving/other professions" grouped together like that, given that problem solving is not a profession? As @bucky said, IQ tests are generally heavily weighted toward measuring one's abilities in problem solving. $\endgroup$ – Chelonian Oct 13 '18 at 18:01
