Modern psychological theory considers Cognitive Ability as multidimensional. This is so because it acknowledges various abilities and treats all of them positively. This positive correlation of different abilities made mist psychometriciansto accept the reality that this relation is the refection of people’s IQ (Intelligence Quotient). Some people are very good in understanding things and issues while others is not that much efficient. It varies from person to person. We call such people smart, bright, quick, or intelligent. Psychologists have developed tests to measure this trait. Originally called IQ tests (for Intelligence Quotient because the measures were constructed as the ratio of mental age to chronological age multiplied by 100) that name has fallen out of favour. Such tests are referred to cognitive abilities where one uses its own intelligence for issue solving. The term IQ sometimes used to refer to what such tests measure, none construct a ratio (Ackerman, Kanfer, &Beier, 2013).
To understand Cognitive Ability, first thing to understand is, What is ability? It is an acquired or natural capacity or talent that enables an individual to perform a particular job or task successfully. In simple terms, ability is the stable capability of a person of doing something differently. It is a function of environment and personality of a person.
