The trouble is these days people are new-age hippies who are scared of being 'insensitive' by classifying people by stats. They're probably scared of themselves being classified as dumb if they do badly on an IQ test.
But really, IQ tests are the definitive way to objectively measure intelligence. You can throw all your achievements/education/career out the window - all you need is that score to know how bright someone is.
