General Knowledge

General knowledge requires crystalized intelligence. Crystalized intelligence is usually assessed via verbal and classification questions, as opposed to fluid intelligence which is primarily assesed by math and logic questions. General knowledge questions test retention of facts and figures, a skill which is usually attained by an effective conceptualization of the environment. General knowledge skills are an indication of your awareness of the connectivity between events and places, and your efficiency at retrieving information from long term memory.

There is always an issue of cultural bias in general knowledge questions, and the challenge is to prevent assessments that focus on arbitrary trivia.
