When I studied psychometrics (basically, psych testing of all sorts), we looked at the assumptions underlying IQ tests, among others (the MMPI is fascinating), and there isn't even agreement on what intelligence is....so measures of it are inherently more abstract than the ill-defined assumptions upon which the testing itself is based.
