The current research is intended to explore the individuals’ cognitive intelligence and its impact on their performance. The study examines the intellectual capabilities of employees in reference to the problems that arises due to the interaction with varying job related tasks. Raven’s progressive matrices were used to measure the IQ level of employees. This IQ test was intended to measure the non-verbal intelligence, spatial intelligence, mathematical and logical intelligence of employees. It was hypothesized that individuals’ intelligence does not always guarantee performance. The final data was collected on 300 employees from different organizations of Telecom sector in the city of Lahore, Pakistan. Outcome of the analysis revealed interesting findings that Intelligence Quotient is found to be insignificantly related with individuals’ performance. It shows that IQ alone is not a strong predictor of employees’ performance. Intelligence may ensure a reach to entry level position in an organization but for a sustained position other competencies are of utmost importance. This study may provoke new lines of research in the field of positive psychology specifically.
