If you didn't continually ignore my point you would see it does matter. Lets do this another way. Hopefully we can agree that IQ testsWe could debate the origins, but I'm not sure how that matters.
measure, among other things, ones ability to process information. With that said:
Do you agree that some people are able to process information faster than other people? Yes or No (if no, then you are basically saying everybody has the same IQ...)
If yes, do you think that would be advantageous in a timed test situation assuming two people have the exact same knowledge of, and experience with, the subject matter? Yes or No.
Knowledge/experience and problem solving speed are obviously connected, nobody is saying otherwise. Problem solving ability in a given area is a combination of knowledge, experience and innate intelligence. If you want to believe the latter has nothing to do with it then maybe you haven't been around enough ridiculously smart people.
Further, many professional boards/exams typically only require a passing score so as long as you know the subject matter there is some leniency.
Finally, again, the phrase "doesn't test well" IS RELATIVE to how they perform in other measures of knowledge...
I am not sure why you are choosing to die on this hill. Is there something about that phrase that inherently bothers you? It is ok, you can call us Karens if you think that is what it is...
