Alfred Binet (1857-1911), French psychologist. Binet is famous for developing one of the first tests of intelligence. Developed with Theodore Simon from 1905 to 1908, the Binet-Simon Test led to the development of IQ (intelligence quotient) tests. Binet and Simon developed their test by assessing the intelligence of a range of school children. Born in Nice, Binet studied law at the Sorbonne in Paris, and then took up psychology. From 1891 until his death he worked at the Sorbonne's Laboratory of Experimental Psychology.
