How could we design an "artistic intelligence" test?
We could have multiple choice and short answer questions.
Suppose we were to test one's mastery of composition (before formal education). We could ask a question like "which composition has the most movement?". The four possible pictorial answers would consist of only triangles, squares, or a mix of practically anything. People would have to use their artistic instinct and first impressions of the composition (as the test would be timed).
And how about a variation on the inkblot test to test creative vision? Suppose, for the "non-multiple choice portion", someone were given blobs similar to the inkblot. (There would be about ten of each type.) However, they would be printed with very light grey/pastel ink. They would then have to elaborate what they see in the inkblot by actually drawing over it. The grader would be trained to reconize BS- like if people actually followed the blobs or not.
Ok, back to the multiple-choice portion-- how about a strong mind's eye? I've seen the short-term visual memory by quickly displaying a grid with shaded cells, then taking it away and offering a multiple choice of slightly varying pictures of what was displayed. Perhaps this could be taken to a higher level by displaying abstract images to be stored very quickly in memory (not sure how left-brained this is, but oh well).
So, let's hear some more suggestions, in fun, for a artistic IQ test!
Disclaimer: This thread is more into the fun of speculation than trying to really apply anything. I realize that "right-brained intelligence; creativity, etc..." can't really be measured to any kind of truely reliable or useful information for the real world, and I'm pretty sure you were ready to tell me that After all, left-brain intelligence tests can't give a very accurate scope of intelligence either (you can get better at IQ tests with practice), so go figure.
