Right on Psypher, Most tests measure strict verbal and/or spacial/math capabilities. I read something from Harvard that found 9 different types of intelligence. How about social or kinesthetic intelligence? Would not a socially intelligent worker have a superior grasp as a counselor than some of our "rational" geniuses?

...just a quick point... the GRE measures capability with one or more sets of cognitive skills useful in a particular sort of environment. I'm not sure what you mean by "intellectual calibre" but I am [quite] sure that the quality of a mind cannot be assessed through use of a written exam.
