The article discusses the significance of norms for graduate school business students on the Minnesota Vocational Test for Clerical Workers. These norms can be used for well educated businessmen since these students become businessmen. It supplies data questioning the ability to discriminated small differences rapidly. Moreover, it suggests that the test correlates with intelligence among a homogeneous group of clerical workers, for whom the test is designed, the correlation between number and name checking, and intelligence is low.
