I recently paid for an IQ test. There were several sections (vocab, mathematics, etc.) and you received a score for each section, the mean of the scores was your IQ. My highest scored category was 'rote utilization', the score was ten points higher than my overall IQ. I looked into it and it seems like this would be the short term memorization of a set of numbers (codes, phone numbers). Can anyone elaborate more on rote utilization?
