They wouldn't score very high on an IQ test because IQ tests measure the ability to recall knowledge not the ability to do things with knowledge. The
difference between education and intelligence, so keeping that in mind they have problems with the symbols representing our math and syntax of our
languages. Even a picture of a simple pulley system might be probleematic if they do not have drawings or symbolist art in their culture.
Not that any of that makes them less intelligent, just a problem to determine intelligence. Then again, we might be thought of as very simple due to
written, verbal, gestures and pictures for communicating ideas instead of implanting ideas via empathy, pheromones or telepathy.
