"EL estímulo general de la habilidad intelectual" no tiene sentido. En todo caso podría tratarse de la capacidad para reconocer y organizar estímulos, que equivale a la inteligencia fluida. Si puedes, deberías consultar con el cliente. Algunas referencias:
"2- Razonamiento perceptivo (RP): El razonamiento fluido (que se manifiesta en tareas que requieren manejar conceptos abstractos, reglas, generalizaciones, relaciones lógicas, en especial sobre material nuevo), tiene un importante peso en el índice RP. También es una medida del razonamiento perceptivo, el procesamiento espacial y de la integración visomotora."
"Perceptual Reasoning
Female’s nonverbal reasoning abilities as measured by the Perceptual Reasoning Index (PRI) are in the low average range and above those of only 21% of her peers (PRI =88; 95% confidence interval = 82-95). The PRI is designed to measure fluid reasoning in the perceptual domain with tasks that assess nonverbal concept formation, visual perception and organization, visual-motor coordination, learning, and the ability to separate figure and ground in visual stimuli. Female performed comparably on the perceptual reasoning subtests contributing to the PRI, suggesting that
her visual-spatial reasoning and perceptual-organizational skills are similarly developed. "
"Essentially, perceptual reasoning skills are the skills a person uses to learn and store new information from the environment as opposed to recalling and using information at a later date. One of the most important aspects of perceptual reasoning is the ability to recognize and organize visual stimuli."
