The task of trying to quantify a person's intelligence has been a goal of psychologists for over a century. The area of estimating IQ using stylometry has been a developing area of research and the effectiveness of using machine learning in stylometry analysis for the estimation of IQ has been demonstrated in literature whose conclusions suggest that using a large dataset could improve the quality of estimation. The unavailability of large datasets in this area of research has led to very few

In this paper, we review studies that have been done in IQ estimation and also that have been done in author profiling using stylometry and we conclude that based on the success of IQ estimation and author profiling with stylometry, a study on IQ estimation from written text using stylometry will yield good results if the right dataset is used.
